Something to Wine About

Today is my friend Suzanne’s 50th birthday celebration with the girls. Everyone chipped in to rent a limo to take Suzanne and friends on a toast of the town to celebrate. Unfortunately I can’t go so I sent this bottle of champagne in my absence to help get the party started.


I love to make tags.  They are great for hostess gifts, holidays, or any occasion. Here’s how I made this one for Suzanne:

I started with some thick whisper white card stock and the largest banner from the Banners Framelits.  I ran it through the Big Shot and then embossed it with the Floral Affection Embossing Folder (I absolutely LOVE this embossing folder!)


I used the Triple Banner Punch to cut a 1 1/2″ x 7″ gold banner. I cut out the number 50 using the Large Numbers Framelits and gold card stock. I attached the numbers to the banner using Stampin’ Dimensionals to raise it up.  Next comes the magic.  I heat embossed the sentiment from the Celebrate Today stamp set using VersaMark, gold embossing powder, and the heat tool. I attached it to the banner with Fast Fuse Adhesive.

Next, I tied a bow around the bottle using the gold satin ribbon.  I love this ribbon! It so soft and elegant and easy to work with!  (I will admit I chose a bottle to match this beautiful ribbon.) I used glue dots to attach the tag to the ribbon.  The ribbon tag just slides over the bottle.  How easy is that?!


I really like how it turned out and I hope Suzanne has a birthday as special as she is!  I wish I could be there to celebrate with her; however, I’m not having a pity party. I am going to be spending some time abroad with my daughter before she goes off to college.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope I have inspired you to make some tags.  Check back tomorrow to see Suzanne’s birthday card.

I hope you have a wonderful day!
