Instructions: For the Gift Bag, trim the gift bag at the top to measure 9" in length. My gift bag is 8" wide. Cut violet card stock to measure 8 3/4" x 7 3/4". Select the designer paper with the poinsettias at the right hand corner from "Celebrate the Season" paper collection. Trim the designer paper to measure 8 1/2" x 7 1/2". Adhere the layers to the gift bag.
A border from Essential Border die was cut from violet card stock and applied to the top of the gift bag. A decorative border was applied to the top of the bag using Regal Borders and Pocket die. Rhinestones were applied in-between the two border die cuts.
Stamp Assorted presents from the Gift Wrapped Presents Cling Stamp Set. Stamp two sets of skates and one set of mittens from Celebrate the Season Cling Stamp Set. You can use the Ornate Sleigh cling stamp set, however, I used the sleigh that was in the paper collection.
Color the images with markers or sponge the images with the ink of your choice. I colored my images with Copic Alcohol Ink Markers - BG10, BG53, BG57, BG09, C5, C3, V01, V04, V06, V09, RV11, RV32, RV34, Y11, YR20, YR24. I wanted to add texture to the mittens so I lightly wet a textured cloth with 70% alcohol and placed it flat over the colored mittens for 3-4 seconds. It is best to place your palm over it rather than your fingers. When the image dries, the textured pattern pops from the coloring and it looks texturized.
The images were die cut. The Ornate Sleigh die fit the image from the paper collection perfectly. Using violet and teal card stock, die cut two layers each for the two sets of skates and mittens. Repeat the process for the gifts. Apply foam dots in-between the two layers of card stock and the colored layer for each image. This will give them a lot of fun dimension. Adhere the sleigh, skates, mittens and gifts to the gift bag.
The sentiment, "A gift of love" was cut from the paper collection and layered on violet card stock.
Apply 3-D Crystal Lacquer to the blades of the skates and sled and topped with White Gala Glitz. Star Dust Stickles were applied to the center of the poinsettias.
