Grapeful For You Charcuterie Board Card

My oldest daughter is a manager at a cheese shop, so when I saw these adorable charcuterie board-themed stamps and dies from HoneyBee Stamps, I had to order them! She came over earlier this week, and I stamped and die cut a bunch of the pieces and sentiments using my MISTI platform and a sticky mat so I could stamp the die cuts multiple times (I stamped them using the MISTI and then die cut the stamped images and used the frames that were left to place into the MISTI so I could just put multiple batches of die cuts into the frames they fit in and stamp them over and over). 

I wanted to use several of the sentiments from the coordinating stamp and die set, so I decided to make an accordion card out of the charcuterie board die. I love this die because it adds a woodgrain texture to the board shapes it die cuts. I made 2 hinged cards out of white card stock (just placing the folded cardstock on the die but avoiding the far edge so that 2 boards are cut and stay connected each time). Then I glued them together to create an accordion fold card and adhered the woodgrain boards to the white card stock. 

I colored the stamped images using my new Ohuhu Honolulu series alcohol markers. I have some Copic and Chameleon markers I've collected over the years, but several of them are running out of ink, and I don't have many colors. The Ohuhu 104-piece marker set was a bit of a splurge, but I love having so many color choices now! And they color so well! 

This card was made for a special friend who is also my walking buddy most mornings. She recently came over to examine my knee when I fell on the ice and twisted it. She is a PT, so it was right up her alley to come tape up my sprained ligament and let me know how long it will take to heal. 

Here's the front of the card when all the panels are folded together:
