One more bag!

I made this gift bag front after seeing this card done by a fellow demo, Jackie Topa. I took a generic kraft gift bag and attached the embellishments to it. The fire place was created using Cherry Cobbler card stock (119685)that I cut into 3/4" strips and then cut these at about 1"-1.5" long and I rounded the corners using the 3/16" Corner Rounder( 119871)and sponged the edges with Early Espresso Ink(119670). I glued these to a piece of Early Espresso card stock (119686) to resemble a fireplace, The mantle is a strip of Sahara Sand card stock(121043) sponged with Crumb Cake ink(121030). This was popped off the fireplace with Stampin' Dimensionals (104430). The Stockings were created with the Stocking Builder punch(124095) and scraps of DSP and card stock from several different paper packs. Letter To Santa( 122349), Frostwood Lodge(124002) and Holly Berry Bouquet(124004). They were attached to the mantle using some Cherry Cobbler(123125) and Early Espresso(123124) Bakers Twine and some silver brads(104336). The fire was created using So Saffron card stock(105118) punched from the Two Step Bird punch (117191), wing, these have been sponged with Tangerine Tango(111834) and Pumpkin Pie(105216) inks. The logs are Soft Suede card stock (115318) punched with the Word Window punch (119857). I used the new Framelit dies ( 125598)from the new Occasions Mini to create the framed wreath over the mantle in Very Vanilla (101650) and Early Espresso (11986) card stock. The Wild Wasabi (109014) wreath comes from the Bright Hopes(122690/122692) stamp set in the Holiday Mini. I punched out several 1/8" holes around the wreath using the Crop-A-Dile (108362) and place a piece of Red Glimmer paper(121790) behind it to give it some bling. A Cherry Cobbler Quilted Ribbon(124105) bow completes the vignette. The banner is stamped from the Pines and Poinsettias stamp set(123762/123764) in Cherry Cobbler ink (11969).

I enjoyed doing this even though it was very time consuming.

I still have a few items from Christmas wrapping to show you so keep checking back. I promise to get to the end of it soon.
