Okay, so sometimes I’m slow getting on the bandwagon of some of our products when they debut in the Stampin’ Up! catalogs. The card you see here uses the Whiskey Business stamp set. I held off thinking it was going to retire after one catalog and I was WRONG! I had it on my wish list because this screams masculine projects to me! So when we received the retiring list a few months ago and it wasn’t on there….I jumped at the chance of ordering this set and being able to use it for at least another full year!
This reminds me a little bit of my Dad, who passed away in 2017. He was not a heavy drinker at all but when we had company visit our family and HE offered everyone a drink, he usually poured himself a Canadian Whiskey. My parents are both from Canada and moved to the US before I was born, so maybe that’s why this was his drink of choice. My Dad also had a poker group of 6 guys that used to come to the house during the winter months, every Tuesday night to play a game of poker.
I learned how to play poker by sitting in the stairs and watching. The way upstairs happened to be near the kitchen table where they played. As long as we were quiet, we were allowed to watch.
Here are my layers:
- Card Base: Cinnamon Cider Cardstock 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
- Layer #2: In Good Taste Designer Paper 5-1/4″ x 4″. Glue to card base.
- Layer #3: Basic White Cardstock cut with the Scalloped Contoured Dies.
- Stamp the decanter first on the left using Cinnamon Cider Ink.
- Stamp a 2nd image on a Post-It Note and hand-cut inside the inked lines. This is called a “mask”.
- Place the mask over the stamped image on the white layer.
- Stamp the glass image using Cinnamon Cider Ink over the decanter to it looks like it’s hiding partially in back of the decanter.
- Leave the mask in place and stamp the curly lemon peel using Cinnamon Cider Ink.
- Color all 3 images using a Blender Pen with Cinnamon Cider, Balmy Blue and So Saffron Inks.
- Ribbon: Cut (2) pieces of the Fine Art Ribbon 1″ long. Fold in half and glue the two ends together using a Mini Glue Dot. Glue to the top left corner of the white layer using Mini Glue Dots to the back side. Space them both 1/4″ apart. Glue white layer to card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
