Just Because Gift Bag

I saw this project/challenge over at Project Tuesday and of course had to have a go. I am really enjoying creating shapes out of card and paper lately. I have followed the instructions that they offered. Must admit I mustn't have quite embossed the lines in the right place as I had to do a little jiggling to get it to sit squarely.

I used some of the lovely paper that I received from Thearica at the end of last year. It's from a Once Upon a Time paper pack. I added the gold ribbon bow to the top. Then dug out my 2" Just Rite Stampers and stamped the greeting and the border. To create the medallion I have used my nesties...circles and scalloped edge circles. Card is SU Close to Cocoa, SU Ruby Red and SU Cameo Coral. I have added a punched out butterfly which I have decorated with left over pieces from my gold word stickers....same as the edge of the scalloped circle.

I have entered this gift bag into the Kaboodle Doodle Challange #22 - Anything but a card. (Thanks for tip Angie).

Thought I would actually be early this week and enter this into the Pick Three Challenge over at Stamping Vacation. I have chosen -

-Start your card from a patterned piece of paper and create from there.
-Use any color you MIGHT see in the sky (I am thinking the two centre colours of my medallion are sunset colours)
-Use a stencil or template


  1. Looks awesome Merry!
