I have a fun little trick for you today ... I think you should use this in your gift giving! 😊
My youngest daughter has had a student teacher in her classroom this year, and she LOVES!! her. Well...sadly...today is her last day with them in their classroom. 😢 She has been dreading this day all year long. But of course we had to celebrate her and give her a little gift to say thank you.
This is where my little tip comes in! I had made a card for her...using her favorite colors...and then put her little gift in one of Stampin' Up!'s Embossed Treat Bags. Well...I was just going to tie some ribbon on the bag, but then had this thought! I thought the card should be the focal point! Haha. SO...that's what I did!
Colors: Parakeet Party, Daffodil Delight, Basic White, Basic Black
Inks: Daffodil Delight, Parakeet Party, Memento Tuxedo Black (for splatter), VersaMark
Cardstock/Papers: Basic White, Thick Basic White, Basic Black, Vellum, Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper, Black & White Designs Designer Series Paper

Accessories: Linen Thread, Basics Embossing Powders, Adhesive Backed Seasonal Sequins, Embossed Treat Bag, Clear Envelope
Now...I am sure you are asking...how is that card staying on there?! Well this is the fun trick!
***TIP!!!!*** Take a Clear Medium Envelope, cut it down to 4" tall, and adhere that to the front of the bag! Then just add your card for a fun decorative focal point to the bag! 😍
What do you think?! Taking or leaving this tip?! Haha. Would this be useful for you in your crafting & gift giving?!
Here is a closer look at the card...
Yellow & green are her favorite colors, so I did a watercolor wash on some Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper. Then added some die cuts from the Framed Florets Dies, some greetings from a few stamp sets (Art Gallery & March 22 Paper Pumpkin-Beyond the Horizon), and some embelishments.
I hope you enjoy this card! Thank you, Stampin' Up! for creating such fun products to make papercrafting so much fun!
