Is it a Gift Bag or is it a Card?......

Well, it's a card that looks like a gift bag! I tell ya', I'm having so much fun with my Big Shot Die Cutter. I had to force myself to step away and actually STAMP a few cards without adding any die cut pieces to them! I'm having withdrawls!

I actually designed this card for my friend Angie whose birthday I missed last week when I was at the beach! But she will forgive me when she sees this card and the cute gift I bought her!

I started with a cardstock base of Pink Pirouette and stamped it with the NEW Bella Toile Background stamp in Pink Pirouette ink. I then stamped the greeting from the NEW Heard from the Heart stamp set in Riding Hood Red ink.

The two layers of scalloped trim were made with Riding Hood Red cardstock and Bella Rose Designer Series Paper. They were punched with the NEW Scalloped Edge Punch.

Last, but not least, I used the Top Note Big Shot Die to cut the bag "topper" using NEW Riding Hood Red Patterns Designer Series Paper. I folded it over the top edge and used my Horizontal Slot punch to cut small slits in the fold so the Chocolate Chip Taffeta Ribbon bag handle ends could slip down inside the back of the card and not show.

I then used a flower from the Baskets and Blooms Bigz XL die (more Bella Rose paper), layered it with a Pink Pirouette center punched with the 3/4" Circle punch and a Rhinestone Fire Brad.

This card just made me smile when I finished it! I hope you like it too! We will be making this one at Stamp Camp on Saturday. If you haven't rsvp'd yet, there is still time!

Leave me a comment and tell me what you think about this card. You don't know how it makes my day to see that you actually read my blog and like what you see! Thanks to all of you who do comment - you put a smile on my face!

Til later,
