Vino Basket Tag

I hope you liked the basket fill digis from the past few weeks.  I used this week's "Vino Basket Fill" to create a fancy gift tag for...well, what else...a bottle of wine!  I left the back of the tag plain and clean so that I can address it with to/from and maybe a brief message to the recipient. 

A Few Details:
  • The basket SVG and tag were cut using Sure-Cuts-A-Lot and my Cricut.  SCAL comes with a lot of basic shape files and this tag was one of them.  I love that I can scale everything to suit my exact wants and needs (how often do you get to say that in life?!).  The tag measures approx. 3" wide x 5.5" tall.
  • If you haven't downloaded the basket yet, the SVG and print-and-cut files are still available at The Creative Pointe.
  • I printed the Vino Basket Fill digi on Stampin' Up! Almost Amethyst cardstock and sprayed it with a light layer of Krylon Workable Fixatif to set the ink.  I then used SU! watercolor pencils and an aqua pen to color the image.

  • Since I only left myself *just* enough room at the bottom of the tag for "Celebrate", I used my handy-dandy Stamp-a-ma-jig to position the word perfectly.  Do you have a Stamp-a-ma-jig?  I don't use it all the time, but when you really need to stamp it right the first time, it's the best!

And here's what it looks like dressing up that bottle of vino:
