Five Minute Friday – Half Full

Finishing out Wine Week with… yep, you guessed it! More wine!

This card can easily be made very quickly, even with all the watercoloring. The wine glasses and wine are watercolored using Soft Sky and Berry Burst. Berry Burst is a great color for red wine. If I end up with too light a shade, I can add in a little more color after letting it dry.Usually, I would stamp my image and then die cut around it to make sure it’s even on both sides. This time, I did the reverse. I die cut and then stamp. And I managed to get the wine glasses centered across the square. 

I tied the ribbon around the pattern paper before gluing it down. The ribbon is not glued to the paper. I needed to be able to move my knot next to my square. The card is finished off with a couple random pearls. 

I finally used my favorite sentiment from the stamp set “may your glass always be half full”. This reminds me to look for the good in all things. While I’m knee-deep in the teen years and I might be tearing my hair out on a semi-regular basis, I am very lucky to have two healthy kids, a husband, a roof over our heads, and food in our fridge. Although the food thing is very transitory with two teenagers. I could go grocery shopping today and we’ll be out of things in a couple days. Anyway, I am so lucky to have those two amazing teens.LP-Header_Demo_090117_NAHosting a holiday catalog event is always fun—and we’ve just sweetened the deal with our exciting Merry Patterns Host Promotion.
