Week 23 Colour Creations Blog-Hop - Gorgeous Grape


Hello and welcome to week 23 of the colour creations blog-hop. This week we are featuring the colour Gorgeous Grape part of the Bights collection and it one of my favourites.

I thought it would be nice to make a box card. So I started with Gorgeous Grape card base and added Highland Heather layers and DSP from the lovely Hues of Happiness. I also used the lovely Mini Pocket Envelope dies to add a pocket to the front of the card. This way I have a present and card in one, as this holds a gift card. All the stamping was done using the Celebrating You stamp set and Gorgeous Grape Ink. I finished off the front of the card with the Pastel Pearls.

For that back of my card I once again stamped with the Celebrating you Stamp set. But keeping it plain.

So what did I put inside the box on the side of the card......Well it was one of those miniature bottles of Johnny Walker. What a great idea for someone special. I think this would look really great as a male card. 

No gift card was hurt during the making of this card (as I didn't have one)......ha ha ha. All of the card items used in this project can be found in the Stampin' Up! 2022-2023 Annual Catalogue. I would never have purchased the little Mini Pocket Envelope dies if I hadn't had a chance to used France McFaul's on a crafty afternoon last month. But I am now loving it. I can see so many ways to use it. If you would like to know more about the product I have used or would like to purchase them, please feel free to give me a Call, email or PM so that I can help you.
