Dressed to Impress Bag Card

Dressed to impress bag card

This is definitely more of a challenge this week, I am used to more child-friendly crafts, so last week was more my style, but there are some really great colours in this suite.  Today I have chosen to go with the very pretty Mint Macaron and used the bag die to front my card. Love the way that the pearls can be coloured with the Stampin’ Blends to match the colour scheme I am using.

Base card – Mint Macaron Cardstock 8 1/2″ x 5 7/8″ scored and folded @ 4 1/8″
1st layer – Whisper White Cardstock 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″
Inside Layer – Whisper White Cardstock 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″
Bag – Mint Macaron Cardstock 5″ x 4″
Pocket – Whisper White Cardstock 2″ x 1 1/2″
Bag tab – Mint Macaron 2 1/4″ x 3/4″
Button – Gold foil sheet – 1/2″ x 1/2″

Keep coming back this week to see whether I manage to channel my frequently dormant girlie side. Maybe It will even remind me to use one of the many,  many nail polishes that I buy because I love the colours and love my nails painted. Although I may have to wrestle them back from my 12 year-old son who wears them more than me 🙂

Until next time, happy crafting
