Card in a Bag

Staying true to my word last week, I have spent some time today doing some creating! I have combined Freshly Made Sketch and Hand Stamped Sentiments challenges as a base for this creation.

I have wanted to have a play with my Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Die, available in the current Occasions Catalogue.  This is such a cute little bag, you can cut it from DSP or card stock and better yet there are 8 additional framelits in the set one is the heart that I cut out of the front of the bag before putting it together. I used the outside edge of the framelit as a guide for the faux stitching. The cute little arrow on the front is punched using What's Up punch. The great thing about this bag is that it doesn't have to be a bag, I have used it as a sleeve for a card.

Here you can see the card out of the bag, the Something to Say stamp set was perfect for the double sentiment. Having stamped the first part of the sentiment on the insert I made a mask and added some melon mambo sponging. I stamped the second part of the sentiment on a piece of Whisper White and cut it with the heart framelit, lining it up and adhering it to the inside of the bag after assembly.  The hearts punched out of the top of the insert card were a bit of an after-though, but I think they go with the overall theme.

I had such fun making this and look forward to making more cute creations with this framelit set.

Happy Stamping
