Lawn Fawn and Sizzix Mother's Day Gift Bag Video

Hello fellow card makers.

Today, I'm making a gift bag : ) Changing it up ya'll! I have a video showing the process of this project linked below, but if that's not your thing, keep reading.

I'm using the Sizzix Bigz XL apron shaped gift bag die. I am using this to create a nice gift bag for the gardening Mama in your life. I cut the front of the bag from Neenah Solar White 110 lb cardstock.   I cut the sides of the gift bag from the new Lawn Fawn Nellie gingham 12 x 12 paper. The back of the gift bag is cut from Lawn Fawn Storm Cloud. Which is not blue by the way. When I purchased this cardstock, it looked more dark blue than gray. Trust me, I am not hating this cardstock, I love it. It's just mis-represented on the interwebs. It's a dark gray cardstock.

To dress up the front of my gift bag, I am using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Garden Borders Die Set. I am not a gardener, by any means. But there are plenty of people in my life that find a lot of joy in gardening and growing their own veggies. So, I plan to put some seed packets in this Mother's Day themed Gift bag.

I cut the Stitched Garden Border base from Papertrey Ink Classic Kraft cardstock. I used the Lawn Fawn Grassy Borders die to cut out the grass in Lawn Fawn Cliantro cardstock. I used the Lawn Fawn Rainbow pack of paper to cut out the rest of my veggies.

To add a little more interest to the die cuts, I used Copic markers to shade the gras and the green on the vegetables. I used Distress Oxide inks in Carved Pumpkin and Fossilized Amber to shade the bottom of the vegetables.

The background is ink blended with Distress Oxide ink in Salty Ocean. I also spritzed the background with Hero Arts White Iridescent shimmer spray. I did not lift off the spray like you normally would with water. I simply sprayed it and left it alone. It has a fair amount of shimmer and it looks great.

The Sentiments are stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink. The sentiments are from Lawn Fawn's Happy Happy Happy stamp set. I wished so much that I had purchased the dies for this set, because I wanted the "happy" to pop just a little more. The "Mother's Day" is stamped on Neenah and popped up with foam tape.

I used 1/4 or 1/8 inch double sided adhesive to put the gift bag together. The Stitched Garden Border is adhered with Scotch 3M foam tape and so is the Grassy Border. The veggies fit nicely in the little pockets created by the die, but I have added a glue dot on each one to keep them into place.

I added some Stampin' Up! Basic Gray Stitched ribbon to create the handles for the bag. I threw in a little black tissue paper because that's what I had on hand. I would prefer using white. I think the white would look better. All in all, I love how it turned out.

I plan on using the same die to create a Father's Day card using different Lawn Fawn products.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.
