I had a request for some hand-crafted gift tags for bottles of wine, and this is one of the designs I came up with. It uses the fun Half Full stamp set, which is perfect for oenophiles, or just any old wino you may know. Or young one, for that matter!
I like wine, but it has to have a little sweetness....not that pucker-inducing stuff like Merlot. I attribute it to the soda-pop "wines" I drank in my youth. Anyone remember Boone's Farm or Annie Green Springs? Am I dating myself?
Anyhoo, I don't claim to be a wine aficionado, I just know what my taste buds like. I do know that a bottle of wine makes a nice gift, and this tag makes a lovely topper. Just tie a pretty bow around the neck of the bottle after slipping the tag on.
Here is the inside greeting:
Since I was coloring with the new Stampin' Blends markers, I had to cover the inside of the flap because the ink bleeds through. I used the same DSP as the background so it coordinated.
You can't really see it in these photos, but the Black Mini Sequin Trim adds just the right touch to fancy it up a bit.
Tag base: Basic Black 3-1/4" x 11", scored at 3-1/4"
DSP background: Candy Cane Lane (retired) 2-3/4" x 7-1/4"
DSP inside flap: Candy Cane Lane (retired) 2" x 3-1/4"
Image tags: Whisper White 2-1/4" x 3-1/2" (cut two, I used a Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle die)
Mat for image: Gold Foil 2-3/8" x 3-5/8"
Scrap of Whisper White for the holly sprig
