My inspiration came from this project of Dena's. I love the way Dena has used the Typeset DSP (newsprint) line up the background. I also really love the colouring on the focal point of the card - the pops of colour look awesome!
I haven't met Dena (yet anyways) but from studying her projects I can see that she loves the newsprint DSP, stripes and undoubtedly flowers! Her beautiful projects showcase gorgeous flowers. I love flowers too and I have spoilt you with 2 projects today. The first is a flowery gift bag for my Mum - Happy MD to all the mums out there. The second is a mature, masculine one - for my Dad its his 70th Birthday next week. So with Dena's favourites in mind here is what I created.
 
 
 
 Try making this Bag! You will need a Stampin' Up! Gift BagPunch Board

  • Cut an A4 sheet of Cherry Cobbler down to 7" x 8-5/8
  • Using the punch board, create a "Large" bag
  • Cut a separate piece of Cherry Cobbler for the top flap 3-5/8" x 5"
  • Score this piece along the longest edge at 2" & 3" to create the top & flap
  • Adhere together, decorate as you wish.
  • See Stampin' Up! Video here
Here is Dena's video tutorial

  7. Love these Carolina - like the use of the framelit as an edge on the male box, would not have thought of that.
