To start, I stamped and Copic colored the witch, then cut her out with my ScanNCut. (There are coordinating dies, but I don’t have them yet.) I also used my ScanNCut to cut out the bottle shape. It’s one of the pre-programmed designs. I sized it to 8½” tall so that it would fit into a #10 envelope. I cut the bottle out four times: twice from white cardstock, once from black cardstock, and once from glossy white cardstock. I cut the cork out once from white cardstock, and once from thin cork.
Before I could assemble the card, I needed to color the bottle. Using alcohol inks, blending solution, and a drinking straw, I blew purple and green inks around on the glossy cardstock layer. Once it was dry, there were a few sticky spots, so I brushed on some gold Pearl Ex powder to add shimmer and solve the tacky problem. Next, I used stitched hillside dies to cut down the black bottle and turn it into the label. To avoid having stitch lines on the label, I made sure to turn the stitching to the opposite direction before cutting. Using the Witches Brew sentiment from the Spellcaster Witch stamp set, I embossed it on the label. Isn’t it great that all of the new sets can work together?
To assemble the card, I scored a line 2½” from the top of one of the white cardstock bottles. I glued the second white bottle on top, only applying glue above the score line. This created the card base. Next, I glued the alcohol inked bottle to the front, and the label on top. I popped the witch up with foam tape, and added a few sequins for shimmer. After I glued the cork layers to the top of the bottle, I wrapped some jute around the neck to finish it off.
What do you think? Isn’t this a fun Halloween card? I really love the way it turned out! Are you ready for more inspiration with the new Cocktail Witch stamp set? Hop along with us!
