CCMC Holiday Card "Create"tions Blog Hop Week 3

Good morning everyone! It's a Create with Connie and Mary blog hop! You probably have just seen a beautiful project from Debbie! And when you are done here you will click on the icon at the bottom of this post to take you to the next blog. Such fun!

We have come to the end of week 3 and the end of our wonderful time with the Create with Connie and Mary Cards "Create"tions. We had so much fun and I hope that you enjoyed seeing all the great projects! This past week I used the Ornamental Pine stamp set to make my cards so I am using it for my project today! The design team is featuring the Petite Cafe Gift Bags. Here's what I did!

I kept it pretty simple. I like the kraft color of the bag and using that color for Christmas is always a favorite of mine! I wanted to stamp the pine bough several times on the bag but the folds of the bag didn't look very pretty so I started over! I decided that I would put the greeting on the bottom part along with some Trim the Tree designer paper. I just now realized that it is very hard to see, but I used the dotted ribbon scallop punch to punch a strip of Early Espresso to put under the greeting and then popped that up onto the lower panel. The dsp is backed with some Cherry Cobbler. I stamped the pine bough image from Ornamental Pine onto the bag with Tuxedo Black Momento ink and then colored the pine needles with the Old Olive Blendabilities. I sponged the edges of the bag with Whisper White craft ink. I wrapped some Early Espresso baker's twine around the bag several times and tied a bow. The ornament is stamped onto Whisper White using Cherry Cobbler ink and cut out. I threaded a piece of Early Espresso baker's twine through the ornament and tied it to the bag. It is also adhered with a dimensional. Then I added a rhinestone to the center. 

Time to send you on to Connie's blog! I know she will inspire you with an awesome project! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
