Dasher Bottle Tag Recipe

Here's the recipe for the Dasher Bottle Tag, as promised.

Dasher Stamp
Cardstock: Real Red and Whisper White
Ink: Real Red and VersaMark
Tools: 1 3/8" Circle Punch; Corner Rounder
Ribbon: Elastic Gold Cord or Real Red Satin Ribbon
Other: Stampin' Dimensionals; Heat and Stick Powder and Dazzling Diamonds; or Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder

How To:
1. Cut a piece of Real Red card to 14cm x 6.5cm, score a line across the narrowest dimension at 6cm from one end.  At this end round the two corners.  On the smaller section you have created use the circle punch to cut out a central circle.  (Note the 1 3/8" Circle will allow use over a champagne cork.)

2. Cut a piece of Whisper White 7cm x 6cm, stamp Dasher in Real Red ink in the centre of the piece of card.  Leave for a few seconds to completely dry, to avoid smudging with the next step.

3. Cover the stamped image piece of card all over with VersaMark ink.  Things can get a little sticky at this stage. Choose either step 4 or step 5.

4. For the Dazzling Diamonds version: sprinkle heat and stick over the top of the VersaMark and heat with a heat tool.  Sprinkle a good coating od Dazzling Diamonds over the top and shake off the excess.  Reheat the image with a heat tool to stick the glitter to the card.
5. For the Clear Emboss version: sprinkle Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder over the top of the VersaMark and heat with a heat tool until melted.

To assemble mount the image on Stampin' Dimensionals and add to the lower, larger part of the tag.  Add a Gold Elastic Cord bow or Real Red ribbon satin knot to finish.
