Angel Art Blog Hop: All Wrapped Up

This blog hop's theme is to create a gift package or wrapping paper.  I decided to decorate a white bag.  I used one of my all time favorite sets as a background "Ornamental Snowflakes" in a very soft pattern.  The top of the bag I folded over and created a flap with the Labels 1 Nestabilities die.  Have I ever mentioned how much I LOVE that die!! :)  For this bag I closed the bag by punching holes & tying the sides with ribbon. 

Doesn't the button in the middle of the snowflake have a nice effect?  At first I made the bag (and the matching card you'll see next) without the button but it just felt like it needed an extra touch.   A pink button was all it took to complete it!  Here's a closeup of the tag BEFORE I added the button.

And, here's the card to match.

Making a matching card is a nice touch to a gift!  And, you already have your supplies out, so it doesn't take a lot of extra time.

Stamps: Sweet Goodies, Ornamental Snowflake

Inks: Aquatic Splash VersaMagic, Toile Pink & Burnt Umber Palette
Paper: TAC Ultrasmooth White, Pink Bazzill, Robin's Egg DCWV, TAC More Mimi
Accessories: Ribbon, Button, Pop Dots, Scalloped Circle & Border Punch, Circle Punch, Labels 1 Nestabilities Die

Love, love, love the soft colors - we get so used to seeing "bright colors" for Christmas this is a nice change. The matching card is perfect.
