Back in early February, I made a card (found here) using Heart-2-Heart #7 by Papertrey Ink that was case'd from someone else. I love the bright sunshiny flowers and when I pulled it out of my card stash, I decided it was perfect for a friend of mine. I needed to package up some thank you cards, so I copied the card design for my gift bag.
As you can see, I stamped the same flower in Daffodil Delight ink and leaves in Tuxedo Black ink on a white lunch bag in a random pattern. I pulled a white cardstock circle from my scrap drawer, stamped the stems in black, and then added flowers and leaves cut using the matching dies. I used black Candy Dots for the flower centers just like the matching card.
Before stamping the sentiment from Luck of the Irish, I curved it on my acrylic block to follow the circle and fit above the flowers. I love this sentiment and it suits my friend so well! She's dealing with some difficult things, but always has a sunny outlook. I admire her resilience.
I folded Daffodil Delight and Basic Black flags over the lunch bag and then added the circle. Pretty simple! It makes a fun gift bag. I probably should have used a white square like the card, but it doesn't really matter. They look like a set and the real gift is the cards inside! :)
