Fossilized Autumn Wine Tag

Here is an idea for a nice way to present a bottle of wine to your hosts on Thanksgiving.

I die cut leaves from Very Vanilla card stock using the Autumn Accents Bigz Die. Then I used the Faux Fossil technique to add an interesting texture and color to the leaves. Read more about how to do the Faux Fossil Technique in this post.

After I "fossilized" my leaves, I could still see a lot of the vanilla card stock showing through, so I sponged on some color to make the leaves more vibrant. The Classic Inks I used are: Cherry Cobbler, Crushed CurryAlways Artichoke. After that I sponged Early Espresso onto the edges of all the leaves. Here's a closer look...

The little caps on the acorns were embossed using the Square Lattice EF. I think that adds a cute touch. After I had all leaves sponged as I wanted, I added a little shimmer to them with some Smooch Spritz.

The wide Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon is retired, but luckily I had some in my stash. The Burlap Ribbon from the Holiday Catalog would have been the perfect choice...but I didn't have any. "Happy Thanksgiving" is from the retired set Holidays & Wishes and is stamped on Cotton Ribbon.

I think this pretty autumn wine tag makes this nice bottle of wine even nicer. Thanks for visiting today...check back tomorrow for another project using the fossilized leaves.
