MFT is in party mode!  I made a wine bottle tag and matching card using Let's Toast Stamps & Die-namics for this fun duo.  I stamped the sentiments in Brilliance Graphite Black ink (which is perfect for those bold images and sentiments) and then on the bottle tag, I layered a few Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics and wrapped some Buttercream Twine around the tag and tied it with a button and the circle charm from the Let's Toast Die-namics set.  

Here's a close-up of the tag:


For the card, I used Jen Shuts' DS45 and papers from Miss Caroline Be Happy 6x6 by My Mind's Eye.  The wine glasses are also part of the Let's Toast Die-namics and I used another circle charm and Buttercream Twine to bring in elements from the wine bottle tag.  


I used one of the larger Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics on the front of the card and a few Snow Pearls for accents.


I've used the same flag layering on the inside of the card as I did on the bottle tag and then added another circle charm sentiment.  I am SO excited about this fabulous set!  This was so much fun to make and I found myself wanting to add more and more to it.

Please stop by the MFT Blog for more details and a list of all the designers participating in today's Teaser.

Here are the Die-namics I used today:




Thanks so much for stopping by!

I love the layering of the Fishtail Flag STAX, and all the pretty pastel patterned papers (especially the one on the inside of the card, that repeated the design element of the flagged banners in pretty pink at the top right hand corner). Also, the stitching is just beautiful, and brought everything together so nicely!
