MFTeaser - Happy Hour

Welcome to day four of seven fabulous days of MFT teasers!!!

Today we're hitting the bottle with the new Let's Toast stamps and Die-namics set. Talk about FUN!!! I made a wine bottle tag and coordinating card to go along with it.


I have to tell you, there are so many fabulous sayings in this set, and I was reading them, trying to decide which one to use, when I read "Why limit Happy to an Hour?" and I knew it was the one. Quite frankly, as soon as I read it I thought of my buddy Wendy Bond, so GF...this one's for you! LOL!!

I cut the bottle tag from fossil card stock  then layered on some patterned paper from the Teresa Collins Fabrications Linen 8x8 pad. I used the Circle STAX 1 and Circle STAX 2 Die-namics to create the layers for the sentiment and used larger of the open scallop doily duo Die-namics to cut out the black licorice layer. I cut the wine glasses from wild cherry card stock then coated them with clear glaze pen for some shine.

For the coordinating card I went the 'thank you' route. I used the double scallop border Die-namics to cut out the cream scallop layer at the bottom of the card.

For the focal part of the card I cut out two more wine glasses from black licorice card stock and I also used the Mini Doily Circles Die-namics to cut out the adorable coordinating mini doily. The little fossil tag in the center of the mini doily was cut out using the circle from the Let's Toast Die-namics and of course, there are sentiments sized to fit perfectly inside!! Can you tell I'm loving this set?!? There are just soooooo many possibilities with it! And I didn't even get a chance to play with the wine glass charm die yet.
