Hi Stampers. Welcome back – Happy Friday!!  Today’s card is one that was popular at my last card class, it is done with Stampin’ Up! Tuscan Vineyard stamp set and the layering ovals framelit dies.  I’m hoping you love it as much as they did.

This card starts out with a Crumb Cake card base (8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″.  Onto the card front, I stamped the grapes from the Tuscan Vineyard stamp set in Elegant Eggplant ink randomly all over the front of the card. I then used a 5″ x 2″ piece of Old Olive card stock, I flagged the end with the triple banner punch.  I then stamped the vineyard scene in Old Olive ink onto Very Vanilla card stock and cut it out with the oval framelit from the layering ovals framelit dies.  I then cut the  slightly larger scalloped oval out of Elegant Eggplant card stock.  I stamped the “toscana vingneto” in Crumb Cake ink onto Very Vanilla card stock and cut it out with a 1″ circle punch.

For the interior of the card I used a 5.25″ x 4″ piece of Very Vanilla card stock and stamped the olive leaves in the upper right corner in Old Olive ink and the wine jugs in the lower right with Crumb Cake ink.  I just love matching the inside of the card with a few stamps from the same set as the outside of the car. 🙂

I hope you have some exciting plans lines up for the weekend.  I will be busy working on orders from my Etsy store and figuring out the projects for my class next Wednesday in Petaluma, CA.  The class is February 1st and my birthday is February 6th, so I’m thinking a birthday theme.  It’s my birthday, but I’ll have drawings with presents for the participants.  Doesn’t that sound fun?!?
