Stampin’ Up Half Full Birthday Card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers and Happy April Fools Day!!.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  It was the end of the month, so I had to work.

For today’s card I made a pretty quick and easy card for you using the Stampin’ Up Half Full Stamp Set.  Here’s my card.

I started with an Old Olive card front and ran it through my Big Shot with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

On a strip of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper I stamped the sentiment from the Half Full stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the grapes and the leaves in with my Blackberry Bliss and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I made it into a banner using the Banner Triple Punch.  I made a smaller banner from a piece of Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper.

I adhered both banners to the Old Olive card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a piece of Blackberry Bliss Nature’s Twine around the card front and tied a bow.  I adhered the card front to a Blackberry Bliss card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  To add a little bling, I added a few Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped two wine glasses from the Half Full stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I masked the one wine glass and stamped the wine bottle from the same stamp set next to them.  I colored the wine in the glass in using my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. It’s very hard to see, but I added a few Heart Epoxy Droplets above the wine glasses.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the wine glasses from the Half Full stamp set along the bottom of the envelope front and colored them in using my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a piece of the Floral Romance Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!
