Wine Tags

My sweet hubby 'hired' me to make him wine bottle tags to give to some of the executives at the new office space he just finished.  They'll be moving in shortly so we went with the "New Nest" theme.
These were a lot of fun to make. I tried a new technique too!  Can you see the embossed clouds?  Well, I cut nine Sizzix cloud dies out and glued three together.  I placed them down on my cutting mat where I wanted them on the tag and then ran them through my big shot and used the die cuts as embossing folders.  I was VERY pleased with the results and now I'll definitely look at my dies a little differently going forward.

I also used my new Impression Obsession branch die and gave the leaves a fall theme.  The bird is from Darcies with the top wing popped up.  You can't see it, but my hubby's business card is hanging from the string where the bottleneck will go.

I made 9 in total, but here are 5 of them.

I'm having a giveaway!  Leave a comment on THIS POST to enter.

Thanks for your visit!

The embossed clouds is a cool touch, and I love the punches of orange against the blue.
