A Gift Bag and Matching Card




Today's Limited Supply Challenge over at SCS was to stretch ourselves and do something we don't usually do. I have never decorated a gift bag before, nor have I used buttons on my cards... nor have I sewn! I do sew... just not on cards! Well... today I made a matching card and gift bag that I needed for a good friend. I used my 5/8" square punch to punch all these little squares of various Provo Craft Designer paper. I mounted them on a chocolate background. I used my Nesties to cut out the heart and also the label 2 on the card. I sponged Creamy Caramel around both sentiment panels. The bag is stamped with a Great Impressions Stamp in Chocolate Chip, the sentiment on the card I made up and printed on the computer. I could not for the life of me get a good photo of the set so I'm uploading them separately, but you can get the idea I'm sure! I did another first on the bag... I tore a piece of fabric from my quilt stash and tied it into a bow on the handle, along with some raffia.
