|Painted Blooms Work of Art - Bag in a Box Card Set|
I used the Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper and, while it does coordinate with Blackberry Bliss, I used Rich Razzleberry for the accent cardstock. There are six note cards and embellished envelopes in this little bag, with a cute tag to gift the note cards or to fill the bag with something else, or to use entirely on another gift altogether! Choices!! lol
I wanted a different size than the cute little handbag Caroline makes, so I used a Rich Razzleberry cardstock base of 6"x 2.5" and two pieces of Designer Series Paper, one 4"x 12" and one 4" x 8". The handles are 1"x 12" of cardstock, with a cute little Antique Brads (lucky to get 4 each in a pack!) to accent the handles. I also used my White Stampin' Chalk Marker to add some faux stitching dots to the handles. For the trim on the base I used a 3/4" strip punched with the Scallop Edge Border Punch, and the top trim is a 3/4" strip punched using the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch. Sticky Strip holds this dainty piece together.
I used the same layout, roughly, as Chiaki did on her card sets, but I used the Work of Art stamp set to add the sentiments, and the flowers are from the Occasions Catalog stamp set Mothers Love. I stamped them in Blackberry Bliss.

The tag for the bag is made using the Scalloped Tag Topper, the Artisan Label Punch, and the Bitty Butterfly Punch. I made the DSP open up so you can add a note. I used yellow to accent the set, 1/4" Cotton Ribbon in Daffodil Delight, and the tag uses some Sale-A-Bration Thick Bakers Twine in Hello Honey.
It all came together well, don't you think? A nifty little gift set.
