A Wine Bar Card

I made the mistake of asking Mini Miss H what sort of card she would like me to make her to give to Daddy for Fathers Day. She thought about it for the whole of about 5 seconds before she proudly announced , Erm I would like it to be a wine bar.....

My imagination totally left my body as I stumbled over my words, but after the initial "how the heck am I gonna do that?" moment. I had a little idea that developed and turned into a bigger idea....

I really hope this is what she meant. I have spent weeks collecting supplies and making mock ups in copier paper. Not really what I would have thought of as a fathers day card but what she requested.

A full video is available on my YouTube Channel  Mrs H's Crafty Corner

I am entering this into the Creative Moments Anything Goes Challenge

1 Piece White Stamping Card
Spectrum Noir Finesse in Rustic Brown
Apple Blossom Bubble and Fizz stamp, die and embossing set (Free with Papercraft Essentials Issue 161)
Crafters Companion Best Dressed Accessories Sentiment Stamp Set

For the bricks

Blend a piece of white card with the Spectrum Noir harmony ink in friar brown. Pat the inside of the embossing folder with the distress ink in ground espresso. Place the blended card inside and run through the die cutting machine. This then wants cutting so you have 2 pieces, both measuring 5 1/2 Inch by 1 3/4 Inch

For the wood

Blend distress ink in Frayed Burlap over a piece of white card, over the top of this blend brushed corduroy then gathered twigs. Using a woodgrain stamp and distress ink in ground espresso stamp the grains

Cut the wood grained paper to 6 Inch by 4 Inch and score at 1/2 Inch and 5 1/2 Inch. Turn the paper and score at 2 Inch and 3 Inch. Cut the 1/2 inch of either side from the 2 Inch to the 4 Inch mark (see the picture below)

Cut your card base to 11 Inch by 6 Inch and score at 2 Inch, 3 Inch, 8 Inch and 9 Inch. Fold all score Mark's as valley folds

Fold the first score as a mountain, the second as a valley, the third as a valley and the fourth as a mountain 

Glue the brick paper to either side of the card and the woodgrain paper to the middle.

Cut a piece of white card to 3 3/4 Inch by 4 3/4 Inch. Using the embossing folder in the apple blossom bubble and fizz set, rub the inside of the embossing folder with the spiced marmalade distress ink and run it through the die cutting machine. Glue this to the blank card above the wood grain

Stamp and colour the bottles and glasses from the stamp set. Using foam squares secure the bottles so they appear to be sat on the wood shelf. Glue acate to the glasses and fasten this to side of the bar using hot glue to offer some dimension (see pictures below)

Blend a small piece of card with mermaid Lagoon distress ink and heat emboss with sentiment.
