This was a fun gift I gave to my friend Sue for giving me a ride to an event in September. I wanted to make her something fun and different. There's several fun things going on here.
First of all I used the "Cable Knit" embossing folder. Be sure to mist it first so you get a nice crisp clean embossing look. It could tear your paper if you don't. Oh and don't cut your card stock first, the embossing will shrink your paper a bit.
Once it's embossed, let it dry and then cut it. In the meantime you can work on the other parts of this bag.
I had some snowflakes left over from cutting out stockings from Dazzling Diamonds card stock. I sporadically placed them on top of the bag. I made a belly band. That band has a strip of "Candy Cane Lane" Washi tape that was set on a piece of Whisper White card stock and cut on the edges. I added a piece of doily paper to the bottom of it. Then I attached it to the belly band.
The Noel is from the "Hang your Stocking" set with matching die. I cut it out using Dazzling Diamonds card stock. I sprayed it with rubbing alcohol and Emerald Envy inker added to it. I let it dry and then glued it in place. I added a bow with 3 jingle bells attached. One of the jingle bells I colored with a red Sharpie marker.
For the Pearson Mints, I used a fun technique. I took a piece of Whisper White card stock and sponged the snowflake on. To get the stencil for the snowflake, I punched out the stocking with the snowflake. I punched it using a Window sheet. I taped the stocking back in place and left the snowflake off. I just set the stencil on the card stock and sponged on the color. Super easy!!! I die cut it with the circle dies and I also die cut a Real Red scallop to go behind it. I added a rhinestone to the center and that was it!!! Wouldn't these be cute on your desk come Christmas time?
Thank you SO much for visiting today,
