Hi all! Today I'm sharing a fun project using Cathy's spring palette at the Color Throwdown (CTD137).
My card was created using the Gardeners Apron cut file and some fresh paper by Sara and me. The paper on the bottom half of my card uses a sheet from Sara's Shopping Shirley's Nomad Teal Leaf. The colors were absolutely PERFECT for the challenge! The yellow, striped sheet is one of mine from the Romance collection. I lined the pockets and the top of the apron decorative panel with some sewing trim. I cut my pieces to the width I needed, then cut them lengthwise down the center so that I would only have one side of trim, vs double-sided. I adhered it with Scor-Tape. The grape image and the frame for my sentiment is from the Tending the Garden set and my sentiment is from the Well Preserved set. My ribbon is MS teal seam binding and my flower is a prima I hot glued to my tag. The green cs is from Bazzil.
Now, my original thought when I started making my apron thank you card, was to use it on a wine bottle. It doesn't fit as is, so I had to make do. I snipped in about a quarter of an inch on each side of the half circle, then simply slid it over my bottle. You could give it a more finished look by cutting the excess cs or simply stretching the half circle slightly while it's still on your SCAL mat...too bad I didn't realize it was too small prior to cutting :[ Next time I'll get it right!
I want to give this wine with the cute thank you tag to a very dear friend of mine who helped me out this month with some stuff. Hopefully, I'll be able to deliver in person next month on a quick trip I plan to make...she lives several states away. Anyway, I'm very happy with how it turned out and I'm envisioning several other designs to use as wine bottle tags, from elegant to cutesy :]
