Dressed Up Gift Bag & Matching Card Set

I’ve got a fun & simple way to coordinate a gift & really make it look special! I started by making a cute card:

It features the gumball machine stamp by Sweet Shop Stamps; I created a shaker card by sandwiching seed beads between the focal panel & used craft foam for my spacer. The panel is cute with Spellbinder rectangle & scallop rectangle dies. The card base is dry embossed with the herringbone stencil from Dreamweaver stencils. The 1.25” violet silk bow really makes this card a show stopper!

Adding ½” pom pom string and covering it with 3/8” metallic/velvet purple ribbon really dresses up a simple gift bag!

I tied the gift up with more of the violet silk, metallic/velvet and pom pom string to tie it all together!

When the gift & card coordinate this well I don’t even hide the card in an envelope!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you’ve been inspired! 🙂
