Bunch of Grapes Card

Posted by on February 8, 2017 in Cardmaking, Real Life Color Coach


I found this Grapes card in my files with a Bunch of Grapes featured and thought you’d like to see a Quick & Easy card in a Complementary Color Scheme.  The colors featured are Old Olive and Bravo Burgundy, which is now retired.  Old Olive is a Tint of the Yellow-Green/Green-Yellow Color Group and Bravo Burgundy was a Shade of the Red-Violet/Violet-Red Color Group.  This makes the pair the perfect Complements to each other.

The Stampin’ Up!® Color Collections don’t include a burgundy color, so I picked the closest substitutes.  You can add a bit of brown to make these colors more burgundy by sponging Soft Suede or Chocolate Chip over the Card Stock.  Both Cherry Cobbler and Rich Razzleberry are in the Red-Violet/Violet-Red Color Group, so the Complementary Color Scheme is maintained.

Product List

You can create a simulated organdy ribbon by dying the Mint Macaron Sheer Linen Ribbon.  It would look great with one strip of Cherry Cobbler, one strip of Old Olive and one strip of Mint Macaron.  I included both Cherry Cobbler and Rich Razzleberry Classic Stampin’ Ink Refills in the product list.

You can use several of the images in the Tuscan Vineyards Stamp Set to recreate this design for a variety of purposes.  The Quick & Easy card is good for any occasion from celebrate to sorry!
