This is a 60th birthday card for a wine aficionado living in Spain. To set the scene, I used two embossing folders - one for the brick wall and one for the white table cloth and a Honeycuts Slimline die (Slimline Sentiments Blanket) on a piece of gingham card stock for the checked tablecloth.
I used a Marianne D die set to cut the bottle and glasses. Here's a closer look at the bottle taken just after the application of glossy accents. Still can't quite make out those details on the label? Here's what it looked like in Word on my Mac!
Ok some of those details were pretty small and hardly legible on the finished card, but the important stuff was! After I printed the label I used the same bottle die to cut the label. The die has a window to make it easy to line up with the text and which also leaves a raised edge which I used as a cutting guide.
The sentiment (from Pinterest) and also computer generated, was continued on the inside!
