Hello fellow stampers.  I am in the need for a wine bottle tag for a large open house I'm attending this weekend, and I always like to give the hostess a bottle of wine, and wanted to make it extra special this year.  I thought a handmade wine bottle tag would fit the bill.  

Using my most-used Christmas stamp, called Merry Christmas, I coloured it up with Prismacolor coloured pencils.

To receive a 10% discount on this stamp, and any other regularly-priced product at Technique Junkies, simply use my code below. 

Cut your cardstock (here I used Kraft cardstock) paper to 9.5" x 3".  Score at 3".  This will be the top of your tag.

Using a ruler, draw a line from each corner, at an angle, and where the line intersects, cut up to that point to create two points for the bottom of your tag.
Emboss your tag up to the 3" line, or you can carry the embossing right up to the top of your tag.
Cut out your image and layer it as much or as little as you like.  Here, my red edges are a little rough because I hand cut my red matt.  I think it gives my tag a rustic feel, so if you do the same, look at it as a little rustic.

This will be my last post before Christmas, so I want to wish you all Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
