Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone!  I can hardly believe it is now 2014.

I have a brief post for you today.  It is a simple tag that could be given as a New Year's card, or better yet, hang it from a nice bottle of champagne or wine when you visit your friends or family to ring in the New Year.

I used my Silhouette to cut out the ornate frame, sizing it to fit my Happy New Year collage image, and also sized the tag shape to be large enough for the frame.  I embossed the tag with a harlequin embossing folder and added some gold ink to the embossing.  For added bling, I ran a thin gold line sticker along the inner edge of the frame.  This really added so much to the whole look.

I die cut a portion of a picture wheel from gold print paper and added tan card stock beneath the wheel with "2014" rub ons to fit inside each opening.    I first adhered the picture wheel, then added the framed collage image with foam tape for dimension.

After inserting some pretty ribbon through the tag hole, I adhered a paper flower and a couple of scraps of botanicals I had laying on my desk.

Tie an extra length of ribbon through the hole and around the neck of your gift bottle.  Voila!  What a beautifully decorated hostess gift.

Supplies used:

Graphic 45 papers and card stock (Christmas Past, Core-dinations)
Altered Pages AP-1133 Happy New Year collage sheet
Various dies and cutting machine
Embossing folder
Number rub-ons
Ribbon, botanicals

I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for stopping by and supporting me throughout this past year.  I wish everyone peace, prosperity, health and happiness throughout 2014 and always.
