Dies R Us - Wine a Bit

Dear Ones~
Today over at the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog I use an awesome die to create a card with a wine theme. Here's my card:

I die cut the image from white card stock and then heat embossed it 3 times for a metallic look. I also did the same for the string element. For instructions on how I made this card, visit the

So glad you stopped by, I hope you had a good weekend. We are in the throes of another spring snow storm. Will it ever END???? Thanks for all your lovely comments, I appreciate every one of them!!!




  1. Oh how FAB! Love your step by step tutorial, you forget to do the simple things like crumple paper and emboss more than once! Each detail looks great and works perfectly! Cheers!

  2. Look at all of the texture on this card. Crumpling that paper was genius and I love it. I also love the metal look of the die cuts and this totally masculine card.

  3. Fabulous card, and the background for the die is so creative...storing that for a future use!! Have a great day my friend, my part of Michigan is to be 70 today!!

  4. I just LOVE what you've done here my friend! That crinkled paper technique is PERFECT and ties in so well with your background! GREAT job!

  5. Wow! this is a fantastic card design! So much different layers and elements which looks so well together.

  6. 'Wine a bit', now that's right up my alley. lol This card is amazing Judy!! Love all the texture and the triple embossing. I'm pinning this one to remind to emboss more than once.

  7. Just popped over to see how you created this mouth watering masterpiece Judy. Drooling and wishing I had a glass of wine to indulge in after seeing what you made.

  8. I've never embossed more than once, but I did watch a video the other day about it and after seeing your beautiful card, I need to start doing it. Love the look and fun subject matter. "Just because" is a great sentiment!

  9. This takes me back to my early days, Judy, before I became so CAS. I love the crumpled up panel and all the triple embossed die cuts. Wonderful card.

  10. Wow this is just gorgeous, so lovely and fabulous colours added.
