Shape Up! Wine Bottle Card
I purchased these wine bottle die cuts (by Accu-Cut) from the mecca of all stamp stores, The Enchanted Cottage. I painted the chipboard with metallic olive green Lumiere paint. I stamped on parchment paper (for the "wine label") with a Stampington & Co. stamp. I colored the image with colored pencils, then mounted on gold metallic paper. I used gold leaf for the foil at the neck, and cork for the cork :) For the inside I cut a 4.5" x 12"and scored at 3" intervals using my Scor-Pal. Then I used walnut ink to distress the paper. I stamped the "Cheers" but the "to you" , small starbursts, and grape-like flourishes are all BasicGrey Marrakech rub-ons.
Go to Caardvarks to see lots of great cards that are anything but a square or a rectangle. Fun stuff!!!
