Tag - You're It

Days are getting shorter and shorter and the leaves on the trees are already starting to turn.  It's not expected that the colours of the leaves will be too brilliant this year due to the drought this summer.  You can see that on the leaves now.  Some are already brown and curled up and ready to fall off the tree.  So sad, because I love the fall colours.

Today I played with making some bottle tags using the "Here's to Cheers", and the coordinating "Cheerful Tags thinlets"



Using Elegant Eggplant DSP, the wine tag was die cut using the Cheery Tags framelit.  A second one was cut using Very Vanilla and it was used to cover the top scalloped edge and the part that goes around the bottle neck.  A Elegant Eggplant swirl decorated the top of the tag flap.

The image was stamped using Elegant Eggplant ink and die cut using the layering circles framelits.  Some texture dots were stamped around the bottles and glasses, and then the circle was attached to the tag flap. After the tag was complete some dazzling details was applied to the images.

A length of Very Vanilla satin ribbon was inserted through the top slit twice leaving a loop to go around the bottle neck, the remaining length going around the back of the tag and extending below it.

 Lifting up the flap exposes a sentiment stamped from "Here's to Cheers" - also stamped in Elegant Eggplant.  Again, it is die cut using the layering circles framelits and matted with a larger Elegant Eggplant scalloped circle. It was placed near the top so that when the flap was closed the sentiment was not visible from the front.
