You Had Me at Merlot

Here's my card for the current CASology cue card--toast.  I used the Free Spirits set from Paper Smooches for my clean and simple design.

You Had Me at Merlot card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Paper Smooches
A pair of wine glasses serves as my focal image.  To get a merlot-ish color, I stamped the filler image inside the glass outline repeatedly until I got a rich red shade. To ground them, the glasses were arranged over a kraft scallop edged strip with a sparkly gold panel behind it.  I stamped the punny "you had me at merlot" sentiment above the glasses in black ink.  A few gold sequins scattered around the glasses added a little more sparkle to the design.  The finished panel was adhered to a deep red card base.

Materials Used:
Free Spirits stamp set, Free Spirits Icons dies (Paper Smooches); Memento Tuxedo Black and Rhubarb Stalk inks (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); Cherry Cobbler cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Kraft cardstock, scallop edge border die (Papertrey Ink); gold sequins; foam tape


  1. What a fun card, Lori! :) Love the colors on this and the touch of sparkle!
