After four years our wonderful church youth worker is moving on to pastures new. I was commissioned to make a card for everyone to sign to thank her and wish her well in her next position. After a complete blank on what to do I eventually had a brainwave! One of the youth groups is called Gazebo Grapes and Deedee had just the set I needed. By now there was not enough time to colour in the image so I used the already coloured in version.
Deedee’s Digi Set – Fruit of the vine
printing paper and card
15cm x 15cm white card blank
Adirondack ink pad – Lemonade
I made up my base design with the green grapes image and sized it to fit my card blank. I also added some red grape images the same size in the spare area of my sheet then printed it out. I trimmed the main image down, distressed around the edges almost into the middle with the lemonade ink and matted it onto the yellow card before attaching to the card base. I covered the grapes with glossy accents and left it to dry. I fussy cut the red grape images and when the base image was dry attached the red grapes between the green grapes using 3d glue gel. When the glue was set I put glossy accents on the red grapes. This time I did it in stages to try to get the individual grapes to stand out more. (I am not sure why but at this point some of my grapes went white!)
I made an insert for the card using a graphics programme to made a backing paper with the green and red grape images on it. (I forgot to photograph the inside before it went off to the church to be signed.)
Whenever I see that verse from John 15 I want to sing ‘I am the vine, you are the branches’, I love that hymn/song in all it’s different renditions. This one is a particularly tuneful one if you are interested: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LF4J7CCximo
I did say that I was hoping to get some quality time in my craft room this weekend and I have managed to finish a couple of projects so will be sharing them during the coming week. Thank you for stopping by. Take care.
