My Christmas project is a gift bag w/ a tag and a matching card. I love making tags and gift bags for some reason. Maybe just because they are something a little different. I’m loving the Blackberry Beauty Specialty Designer Series Paper and of course, I love Blackberry Bliss. I thought I could make this specialty paper, with the gold foil leaves, and could turn it into a Christmas paper vs a fall paper.
The bag is designed for a wine bottle, tall and thin. The bag is white and I first covered it with a strip of Blackberry Bliss Cardstock. I covered that with a Very Vanilla Cardstock panel embossed with the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder. The length from top to bottom is 12″, so both the Blackberry Bliss & Very Vanilla are made in 2 pieces that are joined under the strip of Designer Series Paper. So that piece is not just pretty, but functional too!!
I used the Tailor Made Tags Dies to cut the Designer Series Paper tag, then hand cut the Blackberry Bliss tag on my own using the die-cut as a guide. The ornament comes from the Bright Baubles Stamp Set and is embossed in Gold embossing powder from the Metallics Embossing Powders. I used added some white & black watercolor pencils to the ornament to give it some 3d effect.
The greeting comes from the Snow Wonder Stamp Set and the labels are from Snow Time Dies & Hippo & Friends Dies.
The matching card uses the matching dies from the Bright Baubles bundle, Delicate Baubles Dies. I wanted it to compliment the bag, not match.
I cut the detailed “joy” ornament out of Gold Foil Sheets, back with Blackberry Bliss Cardstock.
Both the card and bag are finished off with Gold 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon, Gilded Gems, and Gold Simply Elegant Trim.
I hope you liked my project. Please make sure you leave a comment with the hashtag #stampitcontest to win the Looking Up Card Kit, and visit each of the bloggers on this hop!
