My FIRST Paperbag Card!!

Hi Stampers!

This is my THIRD and final post for you today! Be sure to check out my Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Inspirational Project AND my SNEAK PEEK project for Crafty Sentiments Designs - Lilly Fairy!

This week at Crafty Sentiments Designs the challenge is COLORFUL! I decided to try my hand at making my very first Paperbag Card! I have just fallen in love with making these! They are so fun and a great way to showcase a few of your favorite images!

I will warn you now...this post is PICTURE HEAVY!

Here is the cover:

This image is called Tess Summer Fun. I think this image is so pretty and she was so fun to color!  Here is a Close Up:

This is the inside when you first open the paperbag:

Here is a closer look at the the page on the left side of the paper bag...

This image is called Flora With Flowers and is one of the Manga Digi Stamps from Crafty Sentiments Designs. I love this series of stamps - they are so cute and fun to color :)

On the little pull out post card the back side is a white area to journal or write a note on. The stamped image is from a Tim Holtz stamp.

Here is the page on the right with the Fairy Poem that I printed from the Internet:

This image is called Flora and again is from the Manga Digi Collection. I added some stickles to her wings and lots of pearl flourishes. Here is a closer look...

I also created a pull out  insert that goes in the opening of the bag...

The image on the insert is called Taski. I think she is so cute! The image again is the Tim Holtz stamp that I used on the journaling card. The black flourish corners are created using the La La Land Filigree Corner Die.

Here is a closer look at Taski. I added stickles to her wings from some bling. 

And finally here is the back cover...

I kept the back pretty simple. All the Designer papers that I used are from Graphic 45.

I hope you enjoyed my project! I am looking forward to making more of this style project! They are perfect for sliding a little stamp or other small gift inside with the insert page as well!

Come play along with us this week at Crafty Sentiments Designs - we want to see how colorful you can make your project!
