New Year's Card with Wine Topper

You just got a last minute invitation to a New Year's Eve Party. Oh my gosh, what do you do. You need a hostess gift and your need one fast. Well, here it is!!! Right at your fingertips and you will be ready to go to the party and impress your hostess with this very cute gift combo.

This is from the new release of New Beginnings called Little Dumplings New Years Girl. You can find her right here. She's perfect for your New Year's paper crafting needs.

For this creation, I used the Cuttlebug Clockworks embossing folder and the Spellbinders Timeless Heritage die for the clock. The champange glasses are a Martha Stewart punch called Flute with Bubbles.Here is a close up of the Wine Bottle Topper. This is so easy to do. Here are the directions:


Cut a piece of cardstock 3-1/2 by 10-3/4
Score at 8"
In the middle of the 2-3/4 " side punch or die cut a 1-1/2 hole for the neck of the bottle.
Cut your designer paper 7-3/4 by 3-1/4
Cut another coordinating Designer paper 7-1/2 by 3
You can use a corner punch to fancy up the edges.
Layer one on top of the other and decorate as desire.

Here are the new releases
