ID: MC Sept/17 - Easel Grapes - ECD Live, Love, Laugh - A Bottle Of Wine card
size: 5"w x 7"h (easel closed)

Created: Sept 13, 2017

It feels like fall here in Calgary... so I thought I'd make a fall card...

I'm using several A Way With Words dies "Live", "Love", "Laugh" from Elizabeth Craft Designs, also available on Quietfire Design HERE . HERE and HERE

And I'm using a quote stamp set from Quietfire Design 

("Wine Is Sunlight" 4pce set); 



Scored and folded my purple toned cardstock to create the easel, and another piece the same size as card for the front. Cut a slightly smaller piece from a Pumpkin toned cardstock and adhered to front.

Created the grapes by punching out circles from the purple cardstock, inking the edges of each with a Distress "Dusty Concord" mini pad, adhering them in place and then using a white Prisma colored pencil for the highlight mark.

Created an electronic cut file of the leaves, jug and various other elements from the sets (Heartfelt Creations "Jars and Vines"; "Italiana Grapevines"). Cut from white cardstock and inked with Distress pads, blending colors with a wet paint brush.

Stamped the quotes using Versafine "Imperial Purple" and clear embossed.

On the floor: Stamped the border of grapevines (Heartfelt Creations "Italiana Grape Borders") with the purple, clear embossed on the pumpkin cardstock. Trimmed down and adhered to floor with 3D foam tape to act as my stopper.

Die cut the words from a light peach Bazzill Monochromatic cardstock. Adhered the "Live" to the stopper and the other 2 words on the floor.

Added a sprig of the grapevines.
