I admit it. I almost missed my dear friend's birthday. We made last minute plans to go out with her and her husband the other night at 5:30, and at 5PM I got an email from her husband saying "hey, it's her birthday tomorrow!" Whoops! (I mean, I knew it was at the end of February, but how did we get to the end so fast??) Well, you know I had puh-lenty of cards laying around here (and fortunately even had one I knew she really liked already!) but I had to put together an impromptu gift, FAST, as we had to leave in 20 minutes to meet them! Luckily, with Arranged with Love, a bottle of wine, and some waterproof labels , putting together something pretty and appropriate was not a problem! Here it is, my own private happy birthday label! I stamped the frame onto the waterproof label in Memento Tuxedo Black, centering the little greeting card so as not to catch any of the borders on the sticker. After adding my greeting, I quickly colored it with Copics, sponged on a bit of Antique Linen Distressing ink and placed it over the existing wine label! Done in 15 minutes, (with time to spare to take photos for the blog heh heh), whew!! If you haven't used these labels before, you do not need to use special inks to stamp or color, kind of unbelievable I know, but true, your artwork is now waterproof!
With all the sentiments included in the "Arranged with Love" set, a personalized wine label like this one makes the perfect quick gift for weddings and anniversaries as well, and one that the recipient is sure to remember. Who knows how many times this set will save my hide in the future LOL! (Don't worry I'm still getting her something else, just didn't want to show up empty handed! ;) Hope this project inspires you to give the waterproof labels a try if you have not yet discovered how terrific they are for gifting!
Have a bee-yoo-ti-ful day!
