So, I am excited about sharing the Fruit Fusion: Grapes set with you today! Let me get started...
To incorporate the grape into today's projects, I've come up with a grape and wine Thank You set, which includes a card and a bottle tag.First up a juicy grape card, I just love these luscious grapes! Aren't they cute?! To start, I covered a kraft card base with a bit of Dotty Biscotti pattern paper. Then attached a strip of a die cut picket fence, using the new Picket Fence die (available this month on the 15th). Then wrapped the card base with green embroidery floss.Die cut a Mat Stack #4 from Rustic Cream cardstock, stamped the sentiments, attached and trimmed along the cards edge. Die cut, stamped and attached the Plum Pudding grapes. For a more realistic look, I plumped up these juicy grapes with a few drops of Glossy Accents.Keeping with the grape theme, I created a bottle topper using a couple of Papertrey Ink dies. This bottle topper fits any wine, sparkling cider or non-alcoholic beverage bottle and it's a simple way to present or dress up your gift.Here's How: To create the loop that hangs the tag from the neck of the bottle I started by die cutting the frame die, from the Sending You Die Collection, from kraft cardstock. Next, cut a circle from within the rounded top, using the circle die from Limitless Layers: 1 3/4" Circles Die Collection. Then finished by scoring a line 1/4" above the bottom edge and folded. This fold allowed me to attach my embellished tag.Created the tag by die cutting a Mat Stack #4 from Rustic Cream cardstock. Using Chai from the Vintage Touch Ink Duo I stamped a few leaves, from Turning A New Leaf, in opposite corners. Stamped a sentiment in Dark Chocolate and attached a bunch of green grapes stamped in Spring Moss and Ripe Avocado. Attached a loop of Simply Chartreuse ribbon to the back side and then attached the entire Mat Stack tag to the cardstock loop (I made above).
Well, I hope you've enjoyed this look at the new Fruit Fusion: Grape set. This set may not be your favorite of the series, as it is mine, but I hope I have persuaded you to like it a little bit more.
