Wine Bottle Card

Hi, everyone.  It's Sherry from the Design Team and today I want to share with you a card that I made over the weekend.  I was just browsing the web and I stumbled across this site called Mirkwood Designs that has a page FULL of templates for card-making and boxes.  When I saw the champagne bottle template, I just KNEW that I had to make a wine bottle card with my Rubber Romance stamps.

When I printed the template I increased the scale to 140% because the original scale was just too small for me.  Then I cut out the wine bottle and started decorating!  

I used the RR stamps Time is the Maker and the Vino.  I chose this patterned paper from Webster's Pages because it reminded me of a wine bottle label and the colors blended with the color of my card base.  The wine bottle cork is actually left over cork from when I was making tile coasters and using that for the backing.  I cut out a little piece for the top. 

I made the paper flower using the Webster Pages and cutting out different size blossoms with my Nestabilities.  You could also use punches if you don't have the Nestabilities.  I spritzed them with water and also with some Glimmer Mist, crumpled them up and then layered them on top of each other and put the brad through the middle.  Then I attached it to the card.

I would love to know what you think!  If you try out any of the templates from Mirkwood Designs, please share with us!  I can't wait to see everyone's creations!
