Seasonal inspiration: let me wine & dine you!

Some of the CSS girls are sharing their favorite season of the year, and drawing inspiration from this photo to bring you a special project:

I think I spoiled the suprise by posting the photo above *wink.*  A Canadian through and through, I love winter.  I love the first snow-fall, the silverly, glistening, white banks... the kids sledding and laughing in their gigantic snowsuits... but most of all, I love to stay indoors in the winter, by a crackling fire, with some warm & delicious drink in hand - ha!  (ahhh, the magic of the season.)

So, for my project, I am bringing you a winter gift, to be able to "wine & dine" someone special:

A bottle of red wine, a gift card to your favorite restaurant, and a cozy card filled with all the "sweet nothings" you don't always say out loud... hee.

I love a cozy plaid for winter - don't you?  I used the new-to-me "create-a-plaid" to create my background.  I inked up a warm red, and two tones of grey ink to create the look.  I then die-cut a tags #1 shape, and stamped it with the coordinating frame.  I also stamped the cookie-tree, and a sentiment (from "cookie bake").  Everything on the tag was white-heat-embossed.

The same steps were taken to create the bottle tag, except that I stamped the snowflake cookie in grey ink instead of the tree.

Thanks for popping by!  These other designers all have fun projects to show off:


  1. Mmmmkay... I had no doubt that you would do beautiful things with that plaid! And I LOVE the dark red and grey together... such an usual, but striking combination! :)

  2. What a pretty gift set! Love the plaid paper you created.
