My daughter will be attending a party for her friend who is turning 16. I made this card with matching bag and tag for her to give.
All of the papers used were from my scrap file - and many of them were left-over from the HIGH low layout I did earlier in the week.
For the card, most of the papers were simply cut to size with my paper cutters. The background paper was embossed with Swiss Dots and the edges were inked with Pumpkin Pie (Stampin' Up) ink. I ran the turquoise cardstock through my Cuttlebug birthday folder. The orange cardstock was run through my Cuttlebug numbers folder. I used a Creative Memories cutting system for the green circle around the number 16. I also added some white pen dots to highlight the number. (I have used the numbers folder a few times to make cards for Erin's friends turning 16 this year. There are other number combinations that this would work for as well.) The flowered paper was punched with an EK Success border punch. The little yellow circle was embossed with a Cuttlebug round flower folder, and I then punched out the circle with a little paper punch that I have. The orange flower was also cut out with a paper punch. I added a turquoise gem and then arranged the card as planned.
The bag was cut using Tags, Bags, Boxes and More. I used Design Studio to get the largest bag I could (cutting at 12" across). I hid the contour of the slot. After cutting, I embossed the bag with Swiss Dots and then assembled.
(Sorry for the shadows...)
I also used Tags, Bags, Boxes and More for the tag, which was cut at 3". I embossed the green flower and attached it to the turquoise shadow which I had also cut. The flowered circle was cut using a round tag with the hole/slot contour hidden and inked the edge with Pumpkin Pie (from Stampin' Up) ink. I made the center flower as I had done for the card. I attached the tag to the bag with some waxed jewelry cord.
