Baggin' It!


Hi all - this week's Merry Monday challenge from Nina is to include a bag on your card. I chose to make the card base a bag since I had a fun Silhouette design I thought might work. This is a bottom fold card which is intended as a gift card holder (I just skipped cutting that part). Here's my card:

Santa bag with elf

Supplies: Stamps - Hero Arts DC160 Santa's Elves Stamp & Cut; CL644 Bring on the Merry (present);
CL803 Family and Friends (sentiment tag "To You"); CG685 Hand Drawn Snowflakes (texture on bag)
Paper: Hero Arts Punch Layering paper; Anchor Paper kraft; Neenah Solar White; Basic Grey
Other: Silhouette Design ID#111031 Port Gift Card Bag; Copic Markers; May Arts String Twine
Distress Inks - Twisted Citron, Lucky Clover, Candied Apple; Liquid Applique; foam tape
Michael's brand metal accents (black dots on berries)


While dusting today (imagine that?!) I found a little wreath I had die cut last year for Merry Monday. Never finished that card so thought I make one today. I used some fun cling border stamps I got for my birthday from my friend Heather Maria.

Wreath with bow
Supplies: Stamps - Hero Arts CL787 Holiday Petals and Leaves (bow); CL619 Greetings for the Holidays (sentiment); Urban Stamps 907946 Tall Urban Stamp Craft Christmas (borders); Distress Inks - Pine Needles and Candied Apple; Silhouette Design # unknown for wreath; Hero Arts Punch layering paper

Be sure to stop in at Merry Monday for loads of inspiration to get your Christmas cards done early. Thanks for stopping by!

Linda your card is so perfect for the challenge. I love the colours you have used. The wee elf is so sweet and I love the way you have coloured the holly leaves.
