Forever Grapevine, what a fun project. Here are the three cards, Simple, Stepped Up, and Stepped Up plus.
Measurements and Supplies for Today’s Simple to Simply Stunning Forever Grapevine Card:
- I used a Gorgeous Grape Card Base 8 ½” by 5 ½” , scored and folded at 4 ¼”
- There are two pieces of Basic White 4” by 5 ¼”
- Also, Scrap in Basic White, Gorgeous Grape and Garden Green for the sentiment and grape leaves
The First Card below is stamped in Garden Green Ink and is on a Garden Green Cardstock A2 Base, 8 1/2″ by 5 1/2″, scored and folded at 4 1/4″. The only coloring is the Grapes which can be accomplished with whatever coloring tools you have.
- Watercolor Pencils
- Ink and a Blender Pen
I added Green Rhinestones from our Holiday Rhinestones to embellish the card along with White Bakers Twine, to add a bow. I then used my trimmer to add score lines at 1/4 inch around the front white panes and three vertical score lines to the right side of the inside white pane.
The second Card is on a Gorgeous Grape A2 Card 8 1/2″ by 5 1/2″, scored and folded at 4 1/4″. On this one I colored the leaves and vines with my Soft Succulent Alcohol Blends and and the Highland Heather Dark blend to color the grapes. I used the dies in the bundle to cut out a few individual leaves out of Garden Green to add randomly to the vine, the inside and the sentiment label. I also colored some Basic Rhinestones with my dark Highland Heather blends to get purple rhinestones for the project .
For the last card I used dies to cut the vine detail and the individual leaves from Garden Green Cardstock. I then stamped the image again on a piece of scrap white and colored and fussy cut the grapes so that I could add them to the vine with dimensionals, as well as to the inside of the card. I used my Dark Highland Heather Blend to color some of the White Bakers Twine to add the Purple bow to the front of the card. I used the Stitched So Sweetly dies for my sentiments on the front and inside of the card.
I hadn’t done one of these Simple to Simply Stunning projects in a while and it was fun to do! I think I like the second card the best.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Let me know if you have questions.
