Shaped Wine Tag

Here is a little shaped card that measures about 3 1/2" x 1 1/2", simply made by stamping the wine glass on a piece of folded CS, the top of the glass just above the score so it holds together when cutting out through the two layers. I thought it would be perfect for attaching to a little gift bag or looping around the neck of a bottle of wine you are gifting with a piece of metallic cord! I like how it stands on it's own. :)
I made this quite a while ago but hadn't shared yet because I had such a difficult time getting it photographed properly! I used Vintage SilverLuster CS from Paper Temptress, click this link to see the finish, it was the most beautiful swirl texture, something like mother of pearl which I though be gorgeous with the image but can't really get the detail to show up in the photo Becca's of it's reflectiveness and texture, as well as that camera wants to focus on that greeting inside! grrr! LOL! I stamped it with Memento Black and colored with a Cardinal Copic.

When you open it, I stamped the "like fine wine..." quote from "A Charmed Life" under the bowl of the glass. If the bottom looks a little flat here, it is, I trimmed along the bottom to leave a flatter edge so you could stand it up.
Another thing I like about this paper, as with many of Paper Temptress's textured offerings, the inside is smooth white, perfect for the inside of cards! :)
Paper Temptress is currently offering all her touch papers (plastic, suede and my fave: VELVET!) this month at 25% off and the LEATHER line at 40% off, so be sure to go shopping before the end of April, these would all be great choices for you Mother's and Father's Day projects coming up.
Hope you enjoyed this simple project, despite the not so great pics!
PS A GREAT set is coming out next week from Gina K Designs you could use those leather papers with, can't wait can't wait! :)
