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!
