Card/Paper: Rose Red, Whisper White
Ink: Rose Red, Mellow Moss
Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes
Other: 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon
This is a little bag that holds a set of 6 note cards and envelopes. The design of the cards is the same as the decoration on the front of the bag.
I cut and embossed a square of Whisper White with a Nestability die, then masked off the outer embossed edges with post it notes. The image was stamped with two of the stamps from the Pocket Silhouettes set. The first stamp inked with Mellow Moss, and then stamped off once onto scrap paper before stamping on the card. Then inked up the flower stamp using Mellow Moss and Rose Red markers and stamped over the top of the first image. Matted onto a Rose Red scalloped square cut with a Nestability die. The background white square was embossed on one edge with a Cuttlebug Forest Branches folder.
The bag was made from one piece of Rose Red A4 card, folded and glued. No cutting involved! Held closed at the top with the ribbon.
