Wine Bag, Tag and Matching Card

I will be visiting my daughter, Sarah, over Thanksgiving and I want to take her something special.  She will not be home at Christmas time this year so we will celebrate a little early.  The November challenge at Hero Arts is all about gift wrapping and my new project fits perfectly.

I used the Hero Arts digi kit, Stocking Cap Snowman.  The digi kit was perfect for this project because you can resize them to fit anything.  I used a paper bag from the wine store and fed it through my printer.  I must admit, this process was a little tricky.  I jammed my poor printer a couple times before the finished product.  My final solution was to use painter's tape and tape the bag to a sheet of legal size paper.  YEAH, it worked! For the tag, I erased one button on the snowman in PhotoShop.  It made more space for a greeting.  The card was a lot easier, and I may be making a few more since I am behind in my Christmas cards.  Just print on craft and stamp a greeting over the image.  Easy, peasy!

Paper:  Recollections
Ink:  Versafine, Onyx Black
Stamps:  Hero Arts digital kit and clear
Dies/Punches:  Sizzix
Other:  PTI ribbon
