Island Indigo Gift Set

We made a card in class last month that I wanted to use in a gift set.   It uses the Pleasant Poppies stamp in Island Indigo.

Here's what I added to make it a set:
The white paper bag with string handles was stamped randomly by inking up one of the poppies from the Pleasant Poppies stamp (C-129499) with a marker.  I've used Island Indigo and Calypso Coral.  I added a few butterflies along the bottom from the Papillon Potpourri set (C-123759).  The DSP was a piece from the Festival of Prints in the Holiday catty (2012).  It's the perfect size to make a pocket that holds the card. 
I made the flower using the Fun Flowers die and the Big Shot.  The DSP is from Summer Smooches & the brad is from last years designer printed pack.
This cute little bag/box is a CASE from the current catty.  Inside are tea lights for the gift (see below).  It uses the Fancy Favor die and more DSP from Summer Smooches.   I've attached a paper clip as a closer and the heart was punched with Calypso Coral.  The "ribbon" is made from white cardstock stamped with Happy Birthday out of the Curly Cute set.  You make loops of different sizes and attach them all together, wrapping another small piece to make the centre of the "bow".

Here's the whole ensemble.......
.....complete with bird cage gift and Calypso Coral coloured tea light.  So cute! 

Wishing you a great start to the week!

  1. That's a very nice gift set! Love the little flower you made and the idea of making a pocket on the side. Those two colours go together so well.
