A pretty close case


Back again today with another finished challenge. This one I have been working on (in my head) since I saw this post by Dawn at Raspberry Suite. I Just love the color combo & I thought how stinkin' cute it would be to make a card that looked like that gift bag! This is my inspiration photo.

Dawn also posted this color challenge....Lucky me it is the exact color combo I LOVED in the gift bag post!! This is the color combo challenge:

Well in the mean time

So for my post today I made a card in the shape of the gift bag with the same basic design.
this is my card:
R The tag is an almost exact case of Dawns Except I used a Labels nestie for the base & a different MS punch for the edge. Instead of buttons I used my new favorite little flower power punch & PTI Lt. yellow paper. I used some string I had in my scrap drawer that I colored brown with my Copics. The Happy Birthday is also from PTI. ***notice my perfect little bow on the tag*** I learned from Dawn's bow video. That's it for this one!! Thanks for today's visit!! See ya soon!I love how it turned out! It was a bit tedious to do but I haven't done one of those in long time. The card actually fits into a 4x9 1/2 envelope. I used Watercolor paper for a sturdy base. Then for the body of the bag I used winter white CS that I ran that through my sizzix with the diamond Sizzix embossing folder. I also ran a piece of PTI brown CS & a piece of PTI Lt. aqua CS through the embosser & cut out the little triangles & glued those on the Winter white to get the the blue brown effect like the original bag. Then took another piece of brown CS & taped tissue paper to the back & attached the yellow ribbon before adhering that to the card base.
Thanks for todays visit!!!
