Valentine Gift Bag and Card 1

This is the gift bag that we made at the workshop to hold all the cards. It is made with Blush cardstock. The front is covered with a beautiful Blush patterned paper from the Life Delights paper packet. Then there is a stamped piece of colonial white layered on Chocolate cardstock. The Colonial White piece is stamped tone-on-tone - Colonial White ink with the same design found on the pink patterned paper. It is very hard to see in this picture, but it's there.

The hearts were all stamped on another piece of Colonial White cardstock and cut out. The large heart was inked first in Blush ink and then the edges were rolled in Chocolate ink. The Blush heart is layered on with a piece of foam tape and has a small Chocolate paper flower with a white sparkle adhered to the center.

Chocolate organdy ribbon is tied as handles to the front and back of the bag.

Here is the first card of the set. It is made with papers to match the bag, and includes a Colonial White bigger brad for an accent.

This card is actually different than the one we made at the class - I didn't like it as much. The large heart on this card is stamped the same way as the one on the bag above. The smaller heart was inked in Blush, and then I inked the pretty flourish stamp with Chocolate inked and stamped it directly onto the heart stamp. Then I stamped and cut out the heart. It is attached to the card with a piece of foam tape.

The edges of this card were inked with Chocolate ink.

Check back tomorrow for a closer look at more of the cards from this little set!
