Just showcasing a recent card and matching gift bag that I made for a friend at work (she has received these so I know it is safe to share them here as she does read my blog).
This is a close up of the card - I used a masking technique with a post-it note for the background flower image. I have used SU Crumb Cake ink on SU Crumb Cake Cardstock for a tone on tone effect. I got the idea for the flower from Debbie Olson's blog - she used the die with felt to make a poinsettia brooch (I did try this but my version was a bit naff so went with a paper version and used it as an embellishment)
I made a co-ordinated mini gift bag as well for the necklace I bought her. This time I used SU's Old Olive ink for the background flower image as I wanted it to stand out more as I only stamped the image once (which I accented with Stickles Patina - I LOVE STICKLES and own nearly all of the colours).
