The challenge this week at Charisma Cardz is to create a card and a matching gift bag or box.
For my dt project I returned to an old favourite Sugar Nellie tamp - A little bird told me by Suzanne Woolcot. To make the gift bag I used a solitary paper bag left over from an old paper bag album I made a while back, I trimmed it down a bit to create a square format to match my card then started both items working in tandem- cutting the cardstock and papers, colouring the two stamped images, assembling the tags and finally sticking all the parts together.
The papers I've used are by Stampin Up as is the butterfly stamp, the sentiments are from Personal Impressions and Hero Arts and the ribbon is the last piece I had of this lovely rust colour - I'm quite sad to have finished it off but it was perfect for this project!
