Bottle Tag

The new challenge on the Marianne Design blog is make a bottle tag - as it happens I have a couple to make for this Christmas so thought I'd best make a start .. .. here's #1.

I've used the MD bottle tag die to cut my base then covered the label part with dotty paper.  Sorry it looks a bit grey in the picture, it's hard to get silver cardstock to look silver .. .. and the weather has been so dismal I had to take the picture under the cooker hood lights!

I got the motorbike die a while back as my eldest has just taken to riding one, although I have no idea what kind so couldn't tweak the die too much.  I did cut it in silver then again in black so I could cut out the wheels and seat to stick over the silver.  I've added a circle to one side with a Dutch landscape picture and decorated with the mini snowflakes cut from silver card - and it happens that one of the tiny flakes is perfect for the spokes of the bike wheel!

On the other side I cut the Christmas text die out of both silver and black then layered and stuck behind the label so you just see the top half of the greeting. I added a few die cut mini bolts cut from the new planks of wood die set to finish off.  Here's the bigger picture:

My son's favourite black rum.

Now my younger son likes the golden spiced rum and no motor bikes .. .. I will have to see what I can come up with for his bottle.

These are the Marianne Design products I used for this bottle tag:

paper from Victorian Vintage pack
Dutch picture from a Mattie's Cutting sheet

bottle tag die LR0367
motorbike die LR0287

mini snowflakes CR1335
little bolts from set CR1348

Thanks for stopping by, and see you again soon!

late note:  reviewing my blog listings I see that the Crafting Musketeers challenge theme is for anything but square, so I can enter my tag with them!
