Aged to Perfection

This week at Cardz 4 Guyz we want to see your Food or Drink themed cards - and as always, they need to be suitable for a male.

I'm sure lots of you will be thinking of Christmas feasting by now, but I thought I'd take the opportunity to use some of the lovely stamps that came with a recent issue of "Creative Stamping" magazine.

The base card is made from kraft card with the vine corner from the stamp sheet stamped in Versamark ink. The banner and words are also from the stamp sheet, and I used foam pads to keep it slightly raised from the main image. For this, I cut and embossed cream and purple card using Spellbinders "Labels eighteen" and very lightly sponged through the die onto the cream card using Antique Linen distress ink, before stamping and colouring the design.

I'm sharing this card with:

Fabulous card! I'm so impressed you've actually used some of those stamps that came with a magazine (I've got loads and have never used them...lol). Thanks for joining us over at That Craft Place challenge blog. Erin xx
