Cork Tag -- Brand New Release from Heartfelt Creations!

Hi Friends!

It's a great day for a new release!  Heartfelt Creations debuts "Italiana Riviera" this week and it is fabulous!  IMO, HC is evolving with every release and becoming even more sophisticated and gorgeous with every new product line!  I'm sure this is what heaven is going to be like!! ;)
"It's time to slow down the daily pace, take a deep breath and embrace life with the new Heartfelt Creations Italiana Riviera Collection.  We invite you to stroll down the Italian coastline taking in the spectacular seaside views, open markets, and amazing architecture while allowing yourself to relax and get lost in an easy going way of life.  Feel the gentle breeze, breathe in the aromas of salty mist and mouthwatering eats as you pass by a harbour lined with delightful cafes and quaint little shops calling out to you to pause for a visit. Step through towering stone gates to meander through perfectly manicured vineyards boasting rows and rows of coiling vines filled with dense foliage and  plump clusters of exquisitely purple hued grapes.  Then as the sun sets, continue to take in the old world charm and beauty of the area as you relax in your villa, enjoying a glass of fine wine aged to perfection while jotting down all of the days wonderful adventures on an old fashioned postcard, pausing occasionally only to peer out the old stone window that reveals the most surreal view of lush gardens, stately mountains, beautiful flowers and that perfectly manicured vineyard.  At Heartfelt Creations we dismiss the misconceived notion that you are required to leave your craft room to experience the finer things in come along with us as we invite you to explore the charm and elegance of the Italiana Riviera Collection!" 
The first project I made with the collection is kind of a no-brainer!  Since the collection is all about the culture of wine and vineyards, I made a wine bottle tag/card featuring the gorgeous paper collection.  I drew my template on copy paper based on other tags I have seen before, just sort of eye-balling the dimensions and "fitting" it to the bottle like a dress pattern (LOL)!  I replicated it onto black cardstock and decorated it with the patterned papers.  Specific dimensions to make this tag are published on the HC blog today.

I chose a used cork from a stash I have and sliced off about 1/4 of it length-wise so it would lay flat and adhere to the card. 

Next I made a matching, poly-shrink plastic charm, using the grape cluster stamp and matching die set.  I added a tiny eye-screw to the top of the cork, threaded the charm onto a wire jewelry ring and hung the charm onto the cork.  I adhered the cork to the tag, added a burlap bow.

These are the Heartfelt Creations Products I used for this project:
HCDP1-259 Italiana Riviera Paper Collection
HCPC-3696 Italiana Grapevines Cling Stamp Set
HCD1-772 Italiana Grape Vines Die Set

There's so much more to this collection and in the coming weeks I'll be posting more projects - hopefully each new one will inspire you to check out the entire line!

For lots of gorgeous examples to get you started, check out what the Design Team came up with [here] this week with the new collection!  I think you'll love it as much as I do!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Anne, this is fantastic! I love that you've used a cork...I wanted to try to find one for my wine bottle, but alas I was not in luck...and didn't have time to drink a bottle to complete the project! LOL This would make such an impressive hostess gift all decked out with such a beautiful presentation!
