Wrapped In Plaid Holiday Host Gift Set

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you the projects I made last night during my Facebook Live.  My projects last night featured products from the Holiday Catalog and a Sneak Peek of a product that will be coming out in the January - June Mini Catalog.  I used the All Dressed Up Dies to create a super cute little gift bag with the Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper and then created a matching card.  I actually did two versions of each project.  Here's a look at the projects.

Tips & Tricks: 

For the card I used a sketch from Casing Tuesday Sketches; I started off by picking my designer series paper first.  Then I pulled the colors of ink, and cardstocks I was going to use.  After that it was just a matter of picking the stamp set.  I picked the two host stamp sets from the Holiday catalog.  The Greatest Part of Christmas Stamp set has some of the best sentiments for the holiday with the best fonts.  So if you are a font person you differently will want this set if you haven't earned it yet with a qualifying order.  
The first card I made with this sketch was the one above.  I used Shaded Spruce cardstock as my card base and the Wrapped in plaid DSP for the main part of the card.  For the second card I used Cherry Cobbler for the card base, but I added a mat of Shaded Spruce since I was using the cherry cobbler with whisper white dot dsp.  The first card didn't have to have the additional mat layer since it had a big contrast between the base the DSP.  
After working on the cards I made the bags.  I used the All Dressed Up Dies from the Best Dress Suite in the upcoming January-June Mini Catalog.  The January-June Mini is the new name for the Occasions (Spring/Summer) Catalog; which goes live on January 3, 2019.  This set of die not only matches the Dressed to Impress Stamp Set, but there's a great die that makes this cute little gift bag and dies to make other parts of the bag/purse.
 The bag/purse takes two pieces of 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper to make the base.  I will say that it's a lot easier to put together than the Parcel Die from the Annual Catalog.  And the best part is that the dies once cut out can make different versions of purses.  I am planning on putting a gift card inside for my oldest niece for Christmas.  I think she will love this little purse/bag.
