Happy Father's Day!

We celebrate Father's Day on the first of September this year. I know, different date to the rest of you huh! Guess we really must be quite different then..........but we still drink beer, and this fact will be important in a moment!

At Crafting with Dragonflies, we are issuing a challenge this fortnight to create a Dad's Day card or a Male card. Many of us struggle with these and we usually need just as many of these as the other type, so making one will be good for the private stash!

I didn't actually make a card, but I could make a gift card to go my project and use the cute image from Sassy Studio's to do it! They are sponsoring this challenge along with QKR - great prizes to be won!

My project was a gift tag for a bottle, and the image is fitted on the tag to pop up a bit higher and make itself know!

Here is the image from Sassy Studio called Lager PinUp, coloured with the Copics. 

I made my gift tag for a particular type of beer bottle, called a stubby in Australia - for all those who don't know it! This stubby is a James Boag's Draught beer, made in Tasmania. One from the hubby's stash - he's not that happy that I have it but is willing to temporarily loan it to me!

Here is the label turned sideways - the tag fits over the neck of the bottle (cut a circle out with a die cutter) and folded down on the other side, with a space to write a message attached. The tag is made from a strip of black bazzil card cut from a 12 x 12 sheet. The image is popped up from the card, over the top of the sentiment . 

The sentiment is stamped in SU Raspberry Ripple (matches her hair)  and the stamp is from MFT. I fussy cut around it after it was stamped onto some SU Whisper White; the stamp has a distressed look naturally - its not poor stamping! Stamped it four times before I realised that!

I will enter this in the following challenges:
The Cheerful Stamp Pad: Anything Goes
Make it Monday: Anything Goes
Challenges4Everyone: Anything Goes

I like everything about this, and I'm surprised you were able to find a full bottle to take your pictures with (just teasing of course), lol. Great idea for a bottle tag and your sentiment and image are so perfect for it!
