Thanks for joining us on our hop - this month's theme is "New Year Celebrations!" I was so excited to get and use one of my favorite sets from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog - "It's a Celebration". This set is soon to be retired - after Jan. 2 - it will no longer be available. And that makes me sad - as I am so looking forward to making cards for July 4th!!
But back to New Year's - my projects this month are this adorable wine bottle tag and matching card. You never want to go to a New Year's Eve party empty handed - and whether it's a bottle of Champagne, or Sparkling Cider - this set gives it that perfect CELEBRATION look!
The tag is made with a 8.5"x3" strip of black card stock - scored from one end at 3". In the center of that square I punched a 1.5" circle to go over the top of my bottle. Then stamped gold and silver snowflakes and speckles on the bottom section. The card starts with a white base.
Both have a white layer on Metallic silver, on black. So on the top white layer I stamped Gold and Silver small fireworks, as well as a Sparkler with gold and black sparkles. The Happy New Year on the tag is stamped in blacked, ends are flagged, then layered onto a Metallic Silver piece that is also flagged. I then curved with my bone folder and popped up on dimensionals.
What makes it just sparkle is all the gems that were added at the ends of the sparkles! I love bling on just about any card - but it especially works well on this card!
