Card and Gift Bag Combination
I used one piece of red 12X24 cardstock from The Paper Studio cut at 22.75 X 11.58 (these sizes were created on my Gypsy). I then traced around the outside of the bag to put my snowflake pattern paper, from Recollections, in place. This also gave the bag a little more stability. Everything was put together using an Elmer's gluestick and Glue Dots to reinforce the bag seams. I embellished the outside by cutting a doily from the Cindyloo cartridge at 4.5 inches using white cardstock. I sprayed the white cardstock with sparkle Sheer Shimmer Spritz. I then cut a snowflake and background from the Winter Lace cartridge at 3.5 inches each. I added some sequins from Recollections and some bead trim and a bow. The bead trim was from RibbonFx and the ribbon from the Ribbon Boutique.
As I've already mentioned, the card comes from Studio G. I adhered my snowflake patterned paper with a gluestick and then spritzed the exposed white area with sparkle Sheer Shimmer Spritz. I used Cindyloo again to cut a doily at 2.8 inches. Winter Lace provided me with the snowflake and background, cut at 1.8 and 2.1 inches respectively. I then added the same theme with the bead trim, ribbon, and sequins, using Glue Dots to hold everything together.
I know it's a little early for the holidays, but this crafting activity has me thinking of cooler weather as we hit 90+ temperatures and elevated humidity today!!
Have a wonderful rest of your weekend!!
