The Joy of Looting

Today the Lady Commander of Copics, Guardian of Glitter and I were exploring the abandoned underground city of the dwarves, looking for treasure and loot...because that’s what adventurers do, when we came across an oddity. Amongst all the rocks and stone archways, there stood a small wooden door. Stuffing a newly acquired gem into my bag-of-holding, I approached the door. Carved into the wood was the word “joy”.

This wine tag was created for The Inked Stamper design team and was based on this inspiration photo.
I cut the paper to 8.5” x 2.75” and scored at 2.5”. I used a 2” circle punch for the hole because it is literally the only circle punch I own, but I think a smaller one would be better - 1.5” would probably be perfect. The snowflake for this was cut using the Lawn Fawn “Stitched Snowflakes” die set and the letters were cut with the Lawn Fawn “Finley’s ABCs” die set. The borders I cut using the Art Philosophy cartridge. The red looked a little blah, so I used a white gel pen to spruce it up a little, earning +50 accent XP points.

This tag will jingle some joy into the following challenges:

“What say you, Guild Master? Should we open it?” the Lady Commander asked.
“We should at least knock,” the Guardian of Glitter said, running her fingers over the carved word.
I knocked twice rapidly. There was no response. Shrugging my shoulders I tried the door handle. Locked. I extracted my lock picking kit from my satchel and Nikki shot me a look.
“What?! There could be loot in here!” I exclaimed.
A rogue at heart, I wasn’t about to let possible loot slip away, and proceeded to work on the lock.
