Wine Bottle Tag using Love Letter Designer Papers

For my class next week we are going to be making four cards and a tag using the Love Letter Designer Papers in the classy colours of vanilla, riding hood red and black. Here is a preview of the tag we are going to make, designed to fit over the neck of a wine bottle.

I have stamped the letter 'V' to represent valentine or vino using the Broadsheet Alphabet set, or you could use the initial of the recipient of the bottle.  As a contrast old olive ink has been used for the stamping and a torn strip of old olive cardstock added to tie in the colours. Basic black taffeta ribbon has been 'ruched' down the side of the tag. I especially like the fact that the taffeta ribbons are more subtle shades of all the colours and the basic black is more of a charcoal grey, which is perfect for the vintage look. The tag, torn papers and hearts have been distressed with soft suede ink around the edges, seems an odd colour choice to add to the above but I think it works.

The beautiful Broadsheet Alphabet set (£36.95 clear mount) has a different decorative design for each letter and has been used on the 'Artsy' journal featured on the front cover of the current Idea Book and Catalogue.

  2. Hi Julia,
    Thanks for a fab workshop last night, I enjoyed making the cards and the bottle tag. Great to meet so many lovely new friends, and see some old (?) faces too. Looking forward to the easel workshop now
