Hi everyone. There's a new challenge at Addicted to CAS. This time it is being run by the very talented and sweet Barb (Barb's Studio Creations). She has a colour challenge for us this time ...
When I was younger, I used to love looking through little boutiques that sold all kinds of fancy tableware, crystal, etc. for your home. Not that I bought much for myself, but did get lots of gifts for others. The store clerks would always take a lot of time to wrap up each item carefully and then place it in an elegant bag for me to carry home. It was so elegant that I didn't need to rewrap it ... just gave it to the recipient in the beautiful bag from the store. When I saw this challenge, that's what I thought about, so I made an elegant shopping bag. You never know what's going to inspire you. :)
I stamped a flourish from an older stamp set onto black card stock and heat embossed it with gold. Then I cut the piece down to a 2" x 2" piece and scored along three sides at 1/8" and 1/4" and then folded them in to create the bag framework. I added a piece of gold cording for the handle, and secured a small piece of gold patterned tissue paper at the top. Easy and fun card to make.
We have Pia (Pia's Creative World) joining us as Guest Designer this month. Please check out her beautiful card for the challenge, along with the rest of the DT by clicking HERE.
As always, the challenge is open for two weeks, so there's lots of time to play. Hope to see you in the gallery!
