Here’s to Cheers Wine Bottle Tag

What is your favorite thanksgiving food? I love dressing/stuffing. My mom makes it from scratch down to staking her own bread. It is amazing! The day before thanksgiving is a whirlwind of cooking and preparation for the big day. It is a ton of work, but we are all so thankful my parents continue to cook such an amazing meal for us each year, and that we get to share in the blessing of each other’s company.  
We often have guests that bring a bottle of wine for the meal. It is such a gracious gift. . So when I saw The Cheers for You bundle, I thought it would be perfect for making your hostess gifts this year. Adding a note of thanks to the bottle is a simple and elegant way to let your hostess know how much you appreciate her hard work.

1. Cut a 6.25 x 2 piece of crumb cake cardstock.

2. Insert in tag framelit so the paper is not laying on the cutting side of the decorative edge. See picture below.

3. Move the framelit, and align to cut decorative edge. See picture.

4. Score tag.

5. Cut a 4.5 x 1.75 piece of plaid dsp, and adhere to the tag with snail.

6. Cut a 1.75x 1.5 piece of very vanilla.

7. Ink sentiment in crushed curry then roll slightly on early expresso ink pad. Stamp onto Very Vanilla.

8. Cut a 2 x 1.75 piece of crushed curry, and adhere very vanilla piece to the crushed curry cardstock with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

9. Adhere that to the tag.



Cheerful Tags Santa 

I used to love watching my mom wrap Christmas presents for my family. Whether it was curling ribbon with a scissors, or adding a beautiful store bought bow she made each gift a little extra special with the tags and bows she picked out or made.
I still think the way we present a gift is important, but like a lot of folks I tend to let time get away from me. So I was so excited to see the Here’s to Cheers bundle in the holiday mini. I love that I can have the Martha Stewart look with very little of the Martha Stewart work.
Here is tag I made with it.

1. Cut the warmth and cheer dsp with the cheerful tag framelit. Fold at the scored line.

2. Cut a piece of cherry cobbler cardstock with the die.

3. Cut the piece of cherry cobbler at the score line, and adhere it to the inside of the tag.

4. Stamp the Santa onto shimmery white cardstock, and color it with real red and black Stampin’ write markers.

5. Punch out Santa with the cookie cutter punch, and use a Stampin’ Dimensional to adhere it to the front of the tag.

6. Stamp the sentiment with memento black ink onto whisper white paper, and punch out with a circle punch.

7. Adhere to the tag.


Cable Knit Ugly Christmas Sweater

My family grew up watching Christmas movies all December long, and like many kids I loved How a Grinch Stole Christmas. I may be one of the few adults that also loves the live action movie. I will take the grinch pretty much any way I can. There is just something about that green grump being shoved into an ugly attempt at a santa sweater and failing at stealing Christmas that is just too funny and endearing.
The new dynamic cable knit embossing folder is amazing! And, it is perfect for sending out an invite to an Ugly Christmas Sweater party, or a Christmas card reminding your friends of the grinch stuffed into his own ugly Christmas sweater / fake santa outfit. 

1.  Cut and score a garden green card base. 

2.  Cut a 5.5 x 4.25 piece of cherry cobbler, spritz with water, and run through the big shot in the cable knit embossing folder.

3.  Run a piece of washing tape down the center of the paper. 

4.  Cut a v in the top of the paper, and attach (once dry) to the card base with Stampin dimensionals.

5.  Glue on the jingle bells with mini glue dots.

6.  Stamp the reindeer onto crumb cake paper with soft suede ink.  Punch out.

7.  Use silver dazzling details (I spaced and accidentally used my retired clear dazzling details), and color in the antlers. 

8.  Once dry attach to card with snail.
