Looking for the perfect packaging for a wine bottle

Karen's aka Moi on the LHS & Michelle's on the RHS
Look no further than Stampin' Up! & the fabulous wine card holder of Michelle Cave from Hastings (as she's from the wine growing country & her husband is in the industry I think we'll trust her ;-)

This is such a cool idea & so easy you're probably thinking like me why didn't I think of that before!

It's just a piece of 9 x 6 " card stock folded in half & then scored at 6" & one of the top corners removed. Tracy Hanshaw from Aussie has a template on her blog which you can check out HERE to see.

Stamp sets: Lovely as a Tree, Christmas Greetings or Many Merry Messages
Ink: Early Espresso or Basic Black
Markers: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Garden Green
Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Very Vanilla, Jolly Holiday DSP, Early Espresso or Basic Black
Punches: 1-3/8" circle, scallop circle
Ribbon: Very Vanilla 1/4" grosgrain or 1/8" Basic Black taffeta
Other: Basic rhinestones

Such a fabulous project Michelle & I can see the birthday version one coming up real soon !

How simple and effective is this? So much nicer than just handing them a bottle. TFS

how many wine bottles where 'consumed' during the making of these cards???!!!

I would just like to say no wine was harmed in the making of this blog post (but one card has lost it's bottle now!)


hi karen,

just thought i would let you know that i created this back in september last year, and there is a free template on my blog on there for all to use, here is the link:

Really please that my creations have gone global.
