Using Dies or punches

Good morning bloggers,
I hope you are all looking forward to a great weekend. We have had some beautiful rain on Thursday night and it has turned a little chilly as well, but having the rain is so welcome. I can just see the garden rejoicing.

The challenge at Let's Craft and Create this month is to use your dies or punches, so I decided to make a wine bottle tag as I received some lovely new dies when my family came to visit last month. These are just so right for this tag.





I cut the small tag with the circle from  burgundy cardstock and matted this to a Kraft rectangle with rounded corners.

Cut the wine glass and grape diecuts, then coloured these with Pan Pastels. These are Marianne Design ..Creatables LR0366 and 0367

The sentiment I printed and then tore the edges and antiqued this with Distress inks.

Please visit the challenge and see the lovely cards made by the DT for inspiration.
