Introducing Enclosed....


Welcome to the first group post for the February Anniversary Release at Papertrey Ink.  This has been such a fun month to prepare for and I can't wait for you to see it all!  Today we are showcasing a new stamp set and dies called, Enclosed Flower, by the lovely Dawn McVey.

First up....I have shaker card to share.

I didn't use any stamps in this card, just the die.  I die cut the large flower back and the top in white cardstock.  I also cut the top out of adhesive foam.  Using an exacto knife, I cut the sentiment out of the foam so I just had the border of the flower.  I added in some clear card stock and some cute heart sequins and then put it all together to create this little shaker card.

Enclosed: Flower comes with a fun little tag die, but I decided to dress up this kraft bag with a simple flap to create a tag.

I used Background Basics: Super Stripes to create this black and white panel.  Next, I cut the flower front out of gold yardstick and adhered it to the panel.  I score the top 1 1/2" of the panel so I could fold it over the top of the bag.  I stapled the kraft bag shut and then glued the short end of the panel to the bag of the bag.  I stamped the "to and from" inside the card....but upside down so when you lift the flap, you can personalize the gift, and there is even room for a message. So easy!
