Anything but a card…….



Today’s challenge project was to make anything BUT a card.  I decided to make a gift bag that matched my card from a few weeks ago.  :o)

For this project, I used:

  • Image – The Character Cafe
  • Papers – Martha Stewart Baby Girl Pack
  • Copics – Y11, G12, Rv02
  • Air Compressor
  • Skittles
  • Spellbinders Nestabilities – Deckled Edge
  • Plantin Schoolbook

It is a really simple project, really.  I cut the bag using Plantin Schoolbook, put it together, added some patterned paper that matched my card from 2 weeks ago and went to work on my image.  My image, like the patterned papers is like the card I previously made.  The only thing I did differently is I used a Spica pen on the ribbon & bow instead of the shimmerz. 



Here is a photo of the card and gift bag together.  The gift bag is kind of small about 3” wide x 4” tall and maybe 2 inches deep.  Not terribly big, but cute for something small.  :o)

Don’t forget to check out the rest of the DT to see what they are showcasing this week:

NOTE:  A lot of my followers know that I have been with The Character Cafe since they chose their first Design Team back in June 2009.  It was for a 3 month term.  When that term ended, I stayed for another 6 months.  I was asked if I’d like to stay on for another 6 months, however I have decided to let someone else have a chance to design with these cute images that Kendra & Kelly create for you all!  I have agreed, however, to be a guest designer for them at some point in the future…so stay tuned.  :o)

So, without further adieu, I conclude my term with The Character Cafe.  It’s a bittersweet moment, however I know that whomever replaces me will do a great job and will enjoy these images immensely.  If you are interested in joining The Character Cafe Design Team, please click HERE for a link to the details. 

Kendra, Kelly and the Team– THANK YOU for everything!  I will miss you all dearly!  I can’t wait to see what you all create in the future.  {Big Hugs}

See you soon!
