A Sweet New Year

Happy Saturday. I hope you are having a good weekend. Thanks to everyone that took time to vote for my Day At The Beach card in the last post. It turned out to be a winner!
Today I wanted to share a project I made for Rosh Hashanah which starts on September 8th this year. My Etsy Chai team is running a week long promotion Aug 1-8 called Sweet Deals For A Sweet Year. I will be offering 10% off purchases of $10.00 or more in my shop during that time. Just add the word Etsychai in the note to seller. You can also see the full list of the the other shops that are participating here
I began by using this weeks Mojo Monday Sketch

This is what I came up with

It started out as just a card but after giving it some thought I decided to turn it into a wine tag so it can be used as both.

I started by cutting the base of the card from the largest scalloped Nestabilities die using Enchanted Evening Cardstock. Next I cut a circle from Stampers Select cardstock then added some Harvest Gold Cardstock to the bottom. After that I ran it through my Cuttlebug using an embossing folder from SU. Next I stamped the Shofar Image from the Mazel Tov set with Versarmark ink and embossed it with silver embossing powder then I watercolored it with Enchanted Evening ink. The sentiment is also from the Mazel Tov set. Enchanted Evening Saddle Stitched Ribbon Finishes it off. One the inside I added another white circle so you can write a personal message.
That's it for now. I will be back soon with more things to share until then I hope the rest of your weekend is a great one and as always thanks for stopping by!

That's very pretty and I'm so glad you gave such detailed instructions on how to make the circle card, I've often wondered! Good luck with your etsy promotion . . . if you have any spare time, want to come help me paint my house? That's what I've been doing instead of commenting on blogs lately!
