Gift Card and Gift Bag!

The request for this week was to use a kite in our design. Since I had to make a birthday card for a sweet little girl I figured I would be able to use it there.


This was the first mat for cutting. I loved the colors for everything. All of my cardstock is DCWV from different stacks. I love being able to use odds and ends from previous cuts.
I started the layering process after all cutting was done. The grass is actually a coordinations paper that I tore, and then inked the edges to make the horizon stand out. I cut out the little boy and girl bugs from Nursery Rhymes in white and then colored their shoes and clothing with markers. The kite is from Sugar and Spice with a dmc embordiery floss for it's string. The sun is from Doodlecharms. I also cut out a Happy Birthday for the inside of the card using Gypsy wanderings. To finish the card off I added some self stick flower stickers on the grass, and then decorated a gift bag to go along with it.
