Fine Ladies, and Wine, C4C485

Today’s Crazy 4 Challenges challenge is to create a card with a wine theme, apparently according to the days of the year calendar May 25th is wine day 🍷 , who knew 🤷‍♀️ So the planning began, I pulled out my Merry Merlot cardstock, my “Wine Tasters” stamp and my “Wine Charms” die set and this is what I came up with.

I started this card off by Stamping the “Wine Tasters” stamp from Art Impressions  onto watercolour cardstock. Watercolour cardstock can be tricky to stamp on so I used my stamping tool to stamp the image several times until all the lines were crisp. I used black Staz on ink. I used my Crayola watercolour crayons to colour in the image.

To create the card base I had to get a little creative, I had just received my “Tag Book Pop up” die set and I was anxious to use it   The only problem is I had already coloured the image for the front and it was much too big to fit on the cover of the tag book so I cut out 2 pieces of 5″x7″ cardstock, rounded the corners, and attached them with 2 pieces of cardstock that were cut with the piece from the set that cuts the connector piece and I attached the 2 panels together. It’s best to watch Karen’s video to get the basic idea of how to make the internal mechanism of the card,

It’s important that the internal mechanism lines up properly with the card base and since I was using a bigger card base than intended and I wanted to make sure that it fit properly so I cut out the large tag that was intended to be the cover and used it as a guide to line up where the mechanism would attach to the card base.


To decorate the card I used a few different patterned papers that I had in my Costco stash, and I trimmed the 2 that I used on the outside as double offset mats for the water coloured ladies, I also used these papers to decorate the mechanism on the inside. I used a different patterned paper to use as borders on the inside, I also used my Party Border blends to cut the edges of the borders

I used the Wine charms and a few of Karens retired dies (cheese, plate, and apples)  to finish decorating the mechanism, I used the wine label to make the crackers. I added a little bit of Wink of Stella to shine up the bottles and the wine glasses.


The Happy Birthday greeting on the front was cut with a die from my stash, I cut it three times and layered them on top of each other. The word bubble was cut using my Scan N Cut. The quote I found online and typed and printed then cut out with a retired Stampin Up Die, sponged with a darker grey. The watercolour, the word bubble, and the first part of the greeting I added to the front of the card using Stampin Dimensionals.

The inside greetings I just adhered to the inside on the borders.


Thanks for joining me! I am a paper crafting enthusiast who has a special interest in interactive cards. I get a lot of inspiration from the internet so I thought that I  would throw out my own creations with hope that it inspires someone else.

  1. This is a super card I’d love to receive! Very intricately made, well done! It never fails to amaze me how much we card makers use engineering skills. Yours are awesome, bravo! xoxo
