Happy Saturday! Normally, Saturday is a great time to enjoy wine with friends; unfortunately, these days we can’t do that. *sad face* It seems that right now, practically everywhere in the world is on lockdown, so today’s card is for the friends we can’t visit. Yes – that is the reason behind why I chose today’s word prompt to be ‘friends’ for the Scrap ‘N Stamp Daily Challenge!

WINE WITH FRIENDS
I’ve combined some ‘old with new’ for this card; a new Lavinia stencil, with an older MFT Shaker die. It’s been so long since I’ve made a shaker card, I really had to think about it! Especially because I discovered that I had run out of the Shaker inserts for this die.
I like the stenciled background, and how the sequins appear to be bubbles, floating out of the glass! I figure it’s been a while since I’ve shared a glass with friends, so we should make it champagne, aka sparkly wine!
I decided to make a slimline card, just because I like using the new Picket Fence Studios Slim Line Die Cutting System. First, cut 2 pieces of white cardstock with the inside layer die. On one of the pieces, apply Worn Lipstick Distress Ink through the Lavinia Stamp Pods stencil. Next, use the MFT Wine Glass Shaker Die to die cut the glass shape from the stenciled paper. Die cut another glass from dark pink cardstock. Create your shaker, using the Gina K. Clear Quartz Solid sequins. Use foam tape to attach the top stenciled/die cut layer to the 2nd piece of white cardstock. Now, attach the card front to a dark pink card base.
Next, stamp the sentiment from the MFT Good Time to Wine stamp set. I wanted to layer the sentiment on 2 strips, so stamped the first part, then masked off the stamp to ink the 2nd half of the sentiment. Next, die cut the 2 sentiments, and attach them to the card front with foam tape or squares.
Finally, glue on some extra sequins, for the ‘bubbles’.
In the photo above, you can see the added dimension of the sequins, shaker and sentiment strips. The stencil is a great way to add a background & more depth, without adding a physical layer.
Don’t forget to create and share your project for today’s prompt of ‘friends’, and/or any other day! Hopefully, we’ll all be able to have wine with friends in person, soon. Until then, have fun creating!
