Birthday Bag Challenge
The pattern paper I used on today's design is a double sided piece, which I love! The stamp set is "Tag It's #10" from PTI and I think I have only used it once! Shame on me! It is a cute little set and worked perfectly with this week's sketch. I always love what Julee comes up with. The sketch included a diagonal piece which I chose to place a little more emphasis on. I ran it through my cuttlebug using the same embossing folder that I did on the previous card. I then die cut it using the ticket punch. I think it gives it a little more visual interest.
The gift back had some sparkly embossing on the words so I chose to use some Iridescent Ice embossing powder on the star image to recreate the feel a little bit. Lots of sparkles and sequins for whomever the recipient of this card will be! I like being prepared for crazy days when I just need to run to my birthday stash and grab something quick. I always like having a coordinating set as well.
You can see the card with the bag here. It is a super cute bag and in the end, I am not sure I did it justice. I have a few St. Patrick's day things I want to make, so stay tuned for those. Thanks for fluttering by!
