Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

July 15, 2015

International Ambassadors Informal Blog Hop

Hi Everybody,

Its time to go Blog hopping again with the International Ambassadors and we really hope you will join in.  We are a group of designers from around the world who get together to share our creation with you once a month.

The theme this time was to make ... "Anything But A Card" ... and for my project I decorated a shop bought paper gift bag and little box

The dies that I have used are the   Labels One Card Front  and this is quite a large die ... but with some careful trimming it fit the front of my gift bag perfectly

I edged the bag with lace and added in a lovely satin ribbon.

I used some S
potty paper to edge the box and to create the flowers from Urban Blooms and then mixed and matched the sizes.

I added some pearly centres to each of the flowers

The label on the front of the card is Luscious Labels One  and the sentiment is stamped onto Labels One  and these are all designed to fit the card front die

Now you can go off round the world to visit the other Ambassadors and see what delights they have conjured up for you.
