Do you recall me saying yesterday that I hoard Designer Series Paper? Well I had to make a quick baby card on the weekend for a good friend to give to his daughter who had a baby on Friday. Chris suggested I also give them some baby hats and headbands that I make and of course, I couldn’t give them without having a decent gift bag to go along with it. This lead to a semi-matching gift bag to go along with the card I created.
I saw a card on Pinterest briefly that had some elements I really liked and quickly pulled out my supplies to get to work. I used the Baby’s First Framelits to die cut the onesie from retired designer series paper. I added some matching retired Crisp Cantaloupe ruffled ribbon to the onesie to give it more cuteness! I also die cut from Whisper White cardstock, a heart from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits dies.
Before attaching to my cardfront, I randomly stamped the light spatter image from Gorgeous Grunge using Crisp Cantaloupe ink on the Whisper White cardstock. I attached my heart using Tombow Mono Glue and popped up the onesie with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I then stamped my sentiment in Archival Basic Black ink using the Sunshine Sayings stamp set.
I attached this to a Crisp Cantaloupe layer and finally to the Crumb Cake card base. The inside was stamped using the senitments from the set Baby Bear. Yes, talk about using a lot of stamp sets and dies for one simple card!
The bag was a five minute job! I went through my “scrap” bin of die cuts and stamped images and found the Baby Bear image all inked up and ready to be used. I attached a piece of the matching retired Designer Series Paper to the bag, lining the top and bottom edge with the ruffled ribbon using Tear n’ Tape and popped up the bear image with Stampin’ Dimensionals!
I have a tendency not to have much tissue wrap on hand for gifts, so my blue tissue from the Paper Pumpkin kit came to my rescue to package the gifts inside and cover them up!
These Kraft Gift Bags are quite sturdy! I found them in a pack of 2 at the dollar store for I believe $1.50..? I felt it was a great price.
