This is what I came up with for a swap I'm in featuring the new hostess sets. I kept thinking of the pretty wine bottle labels I saw while we were stationed in Europe a while back. Then I thought "Hey! Why not make a wine bottle shaped card and use the stamps as the label?" So this is what I came up with. The label serves as the pocket--I glued both sides and the bottom to create a pocket. I used versamark on the "neck" of the "bottle" and used SU! Classy Copper embossing powder. I embossed twice to get a nice thick "foil-like" feel to it;then I stamped the grape image stamp in versamark over the coppered neck and used the detail black ep to get the image to be defined. Slightly time consuming but it goes by pretty quick once you get the hang of it. The dimensions for this "bottle" are 8 1/2" x 3'' in case any of you are curious.
