Vin Rouge

A card for just one challenge: Totally Papercrafts #79 Food and drink

This is based on a tall thin card made by folding an A5 piece of card the other way (so you don't end up with an A6 card!).

I have both Food and Drink here as the background features the grapes and the bottle contains the drink!

The large background mat is made from hand marbled card.

The Grape vine mat was from a Stamp by the Stamp Man. This was stamped with black Stazon, coloured all over with Shabby Shutters distress ink and the detail of the vine and grapes painted in with Adirondack inks.

The bottle was created from a piece of white card and I drew the bottle shape before colouring with distress ink. The label was cut from white card and edged with a small leaf stamp by Sheena Douglass. The Cheers stamp is also by Sheena and the Vin Rouge by the Stamp Man.

A bow was added as a small embellishment to complete the look.

Quite a simple card, but fun to make none-the less!


  1. Wow Shirl that is stunning and I love how youve made it look so real, the card design is just fabulous. hugs Shirleyxxxxx

  2. Oooh, the shading on the bottle is brilliant, makes it look 3D, I did a double take on it when I first saw it... and it's a nicely blokey card which hasn't lapsed into the realms of blue, grey and brown

  3. Fabulous, creative card. I love the marbled background that you made.
    Thanks for joining our 'Food & Drink' challenge at Totally Papercrafts this week.
