I'm Linda I'm joining Altenew's Exotic Garden Video Hop

One of my favorite things to do is find a ready made gift bag that I have stamps or things that I can create card to match or go with the bag. Or, to make a bag and card that match.

I started this card by covering a piece of 4" x 5 1/4" Neenah solar white cardstock with Altenew Peach Gold Wide Washi. Cutting the corners on a diagonal and folding the extra to the back.

I used Altenew Mixed Media Jet Black Ink and stamped Altenew Blooming Tulips outline flower, leaf, stem, and sentiment on the washi covered panel. I did not use any anti-static powder tool. I found on the washi it made the ink dry too quickly, and then the clear embossing powder would not stick. 

I clear embossed them and heat set it. 

Then I covered the front of a white gift bag with the same washi and overlapped the flap on the bottom of the bag, gluing the overhanging part with a little liquid glue. and then I cut slits in the washi tape where the handles in the bag are and folded over and glued them down to the inside of the bag.

I stamped the bag in the same way as the card, but did not stamp the sentiment on the bag.

I adhered the card panel to a black piece of cardstock with foam tape, and the adhered that to a peach card base with some tape runner.

Thanks for visiting.
