Treat Bag

Hello my friends,
How about a treat bag today?
I loved putting this together, my craft(iness) has shifted to mixed media projects for sure, 
I like cards and layouts but I would rather make something a little different now and again.
On this project I went with a bold red and white gift bag with a BIG butterfly!
The base paper is embossed with an M-Bossabilities folder - Flora, 
the impression it makes is..well...impressive! 
I lightly rubbed over some distress ink to enhance the pattern.
To create the front feature I used Classic Ovals, Floral Ovals and that beautiful butterfly is 
Wings of Hope - doesn't it stencil through wonderfully - I could make those all day!
Finished off with some bakers twine through an eyelet - twine, butterflies - it was definitely a 'me' day!
All the details can be found here.
Still not too late to leave a comment on this post to be in with a chance of winning a set of dies.
Happy Tuesday dear friends - I'm back tomorrow.

I really like that technique of using distress inks over the raised embossed areas. It sure does give the design a lot of depth.

Clai01 said...

What a treat that is ! it's gorgeous, it looks great!

Sarah said...

Lovely idea - the butterfly die is gorgeous.

This is a lovely card, I have the wings of hope set and will be copying this sometime soon. I usually have an aversion to the colour red, but this is simply stunning, not a colour story I would have naturally put together. Well done for encouraging me to 'see red'!
