Whiff of Joy Guest DT call ~ Bottle Topper

Good morning everyone! Have you seen the Guest DT call over at Whiff of Joy? To enter all you have to do is create a Bottle tag using a Whiff of Joy stamp. Katharina has created a gorgeous example to get you started if you are interested... but be quick! The call ends on September 23.

I thought I would have a go at making a Christmas bottle tag using Uru and Bird, a cute Christmas stamp designed by Norma Fickel.

I had a bit of a try at Paper tole following the tutorial by Inge Groot which you can see HERE. I just love the 3D effect of this technique and have been admiring the beautiful work of Debby Yates for ages - so Debby if you see this - how'd I go?

Here is a side view of the image with its three layers. Do you like the pleated flower? I used the tutorial by the gorgeous Claudia Rosa which you can find HERE.

And here is the inside of the bottle topper card. I thought I'd have it open so I could write a message in there.

Ingredients for this card are:

Copic colours: E 0000, 000, 00, 11, 13, 30, 31, 34, 37, 41, 43, 44, R 000, 00, 20, 22, BG 93, 96, 99
Stamps: Uru with Bird - Whiff of Joy, Sentiment (inside card) by Magnolia
Papers: Websters Pages minis - Home for the Holidays, SU cardstock in Bravo Burgandy, Chocolate Chip, Xpress It Blending card for image.
Embellishments: Vintage lace, Gold and Diamond stickles, Burgandy Organza ribbon, Cherry blossom and Holly leaves (While Orchid Crafts), Burgandy beads
Other: Spellbinders Nestabilities - Circle and Scallop CIrcle, SU Scallop circle punch for hole for neck of bottle, Cuttlebug, Sewing machine, Distress Ink "Old Paper" for sponging

Challenges for this bottle topper card are:

Wild Orchid Crafts - Ribbons and bows
Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge - Anything Goes
Fussy and Fancy - Christmas Colours

Oh, and I thought I would share this cute photo of my 14 month old "helping" me photograph my bottle topper, lol. My little guys are great little helpers. Everytime I bring out a card I've made, my eldest (2 1/2 y/o) says "pwitty!", aww, thanks little Mate!
