Card Maker Publication

I am so HAPPY and thrilled to let you all know that I have been published in Card Maker Magazine....WHAHOO!!!

Winter 2016
 
 
Page 28 & 29
 
 
 
This is the card they published.
 
 
 
 
This is what I originally submitted.  They had me make a few changes.  I think they like things a little more simpler, so that anyone could try and CASE using the supplies they already own. 
 
 
 
 
And this was my final submission.
 
 
 
 
Finally selecting this to print.
 
 
I used the Autumn Beauty and Heartfelt stamp sets by Gina K Designs.  Poppy Stamps Verona Flourish die and MFT Stitched Traditional Tags die.
 
The wine tag is very easy to make.  Cut card stock to 2 3/4 x 7 inches, score at 4 1/2 inches.  Using a Spellbinders Standard Circle die cut opening for wine bottle.  Decorate in any manner.  These make great additions to bottles of Champagne for birthdays and such. 
 
What a FUN process!  Card Maker is so good to return your projects AND send you a copy of the magazine, which I already subscribe too.....but now I can be 'that dork' and frame it all!  lol  I may have to get a red velvet rope and spotlight. 
 
Thanks so much for coming by and sharing my news!
 
Enjoy~~

  7. You already know how happy for you I am, and how proud. Your creations are just beautiful, and certainly worthy of publication!!! Your colors are beautiful, from the background paper to the russet leaves, and you have colored your flowers beautifully. I didn't know you did a wine bottle tag as well, just thought you did a regular one. So awesome, I will remember the wine bottle embellishment. Now, can I have your autograph????
