A Card to match the Gift Bag

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope your weekend is going well and that you are having a lovely Sunday. I was crafting most of yesterday but we did get out for a coffee but no cake this time though.

Here is one of the cards I made yesterday. I kept looking at the gift bag, I made after the workshop last week,  thinking that would make a lovely card so I had a go at making one.


It is a simple card the Floral Meadows Striplet die  by Sue Wilson does most of the work. I cut all the layers with half centimeter increments.


In the top white layer I cut the die with out the cutting edge to get the detail. When I got to the embossing stage I replaced the cutting edge to give an embossed frame to the die. I used the outer edge to cut a double sided sticky edge to size and I stuck this behind the die cut to cover with glitter. I used the tip of two silicone smoothies to add the colour to the flowers.


I cut a frame for the sentiment in pink card and I added a white circle to the middle to contrast with the sentiment. 


Here they are together side by side on the shelf. Now I need to think of someone to send them to and a beautiful gift to put in  the bag. I would like to have a go at making a mauve version of both the gift bag and the card. 

I hope that you enjoy the rest of Sunday. I have some more Design Team projects that I need to catch up with. It is nice having time to catch up on some bits and pieces, it doesn't happen often. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
