You Had Me At Merlot

Hello crafters!  Here's another one for the wine enthusiasts among us.  I cut two of the Tiled Backgrounds in white and sort of crisscrossed them to create an interesting design and glued them down on to a piece of Arctic Blue card.. I cut the wine bottle from the Merlot set out of Khaki card and added it to the left side.  I cut the wine glass twice, once out of white card and once out of wine card.  I cut the "liquid" portion out of the wine card and glued it on top of the white wine glass.  I used a blue pencil to add highlights.  I cut the grapes out of purple card and added a backing to them by embossing the grapes and trimming buy hand around the edge.  I cut the leaf out of khaki card and glued it on top.  I used a white pencil to highlight both the wine bottle and the grapes.  I cut the sentiment  from the Merlot set out of wine card and glued it to the top of the frames,  Using the Double Stitched Squares, I cut a multi-layered white frame and added it with mounting foam over the background.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 3/4"  x  7 3/4" in size.

Tomorrow morning starts the January die release blog launch here at 6am.  I hope you can join us then.  I have some great new dies and fun cards to share!  All for now. Sue x
