Crafty Card Gallery: Celebration Seeds

Hi there! I know it has been awhile since my last post but me and my hubby are now first time grandparents...we are very happy, my son moved but stayed in state...insert a crying face even if we are two hours away and I have FINALLY started my long awaited craft room which we are still in the middle of doing. My parents came over to help and I am so thankful for them because I would have pulled out my hair with some of the crazy things that happened with the ceiling. After scraping the popcorn off the ceiling the paint crackled and flaked not once but three times which wasn't fun let me tell you. That meant scraping three different times and dealing with dust but now it looks great along with the new paint color that is on the walls. Hopefully next week my parents will be back to install the new floors. :-)
Well, I would like to share a card I created for Crafty Card Gallery and this month's theme is flowers. What I created isn't a card but a little gift bag which you can put a card inside, gift card or something fun.
I started out with a 5"x7 1/2" Large Paper Bag which I cut the "flap" off and punched the top of the bag with a decorative punch. Cut and adhered a 5"x5" piece from the Take Our Breath Away Gypsy Moments Cardstock and ink the edges with green chalk ink. Then I adhered a Black Bookmark off center of the bag.


I cut the Best Wishes image from the Seed Packets on Ivory Cardstock. I love this collection. You can leave it as is or add paint/color the image.


I used pop dots to raise the image off of the bag. I also used thread, tulle, lace, pearl sprays, paper flowers and buttons to finish off the bag. I hope you like what I created and if you have any questions please let me know.


Supplies Used:
Other Supplies:Pink and Lime Green Thread, Lace, Tulle, Buttons, Paper Flowers, Martha Stewart Edge Punch, Pearl Sprays, Chalk Ink

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Saturday is awesome and enjoy creating!
