A card and a bag!



In the past I have always shyed away from SCS weekly challenges. I read this challenge and decided to "go for it"! This bag is SCS weekly challenge #67. I printed out the tutorial and proceeded to make this bag. I really like it and I think that I will make some of these bags to hold small Christmas presents.

The cardstock SU and Bazzill. Star burst stamp, Cats Pajamas, Snowman by Su, Ink by Colorbox, ribbon from Michael's, Red Stickles dabbed in centers of each star burst,Sakura Quickie Glue used and Martha Stewart's Crystal Fine glitter.

I also made another card today, this is addicting isn't it! I was drawn to this paper by K&Co. and wanted something simple to go with it. I chose this small flower bouquet from SU's Tags and More Set. I used my watercolor pencils to color in the roses and mounted it. I used my circle punch and scallop punch. I decorated the scallops by piercing a hole and using my Signo Pen. The sentiment is a SU stamp from the Garden Collection set. The eyelets are Certain Celery (also Su) and the ribbon is SU's and is Certain Celery also. I guess that I'm in love with Sakura's Quickie Glue Pen because I used it again along with Martha Stewarts Crystal Fine Glitter.

What pretty and elegant cards. I love the K&Co paper background and the scalloped circle. Your Chhristmas card is so pretty. I love how the scalloped circle with the dots match the ribbon.
