Etched Wine Glass Set

One thing I've learned ... I'm not very good at photographing shiny things! I apologize for the poor quality of these pictures. Anyway, this is a wedding gift my daughter and I made. On my Gypsy, we created a monogram using the Songbird (for the D) and Jasmine (for the Ms) Cricut cartridges. We cut it out of vinyl and then used it to etch a wine bottle, four wine glasses and a platter.
Here's everything arranged in a basket ... we added lots of ribbon and silk fall leaves and berries.
A couple of close-ups:
For the tag on the bottle, I printed the sentiment on vellum and then cut it using the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartridge. I cut a second tag from a cream colored cardstock, layered it under the vellum tag and tied on the bottle with twine.
To finish, we attached a gift card made using paper from the DCWV 'Amber Autumn' stack. I added a little ribbon and a charm. The sentiment, stamped using brown ink,  is  from My Pink Stampers 'Friends and Family' set.

A very lovely project I am sure the couple will love to have. I am amazed at all the different ideas people come up with...now if I could only remember anything. Thinking I should start a journal list and write things down. Thanks for sharing...it is beautiful.

What a beautiful set, Jo! I've yet to try the glass etching, but I've got a bridal shower coming up and your project has inspired me to give it a go. Love the Autumn theme. The basket arrangement looks so pretty. TFS!
