Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Soft Sea Foam card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • 4-1/4″ x 1-1/2″ cut from the printed end of a card base from the kit
  • optional: Whisper White CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the inside of the card base

Stamped with the My Wonderful Family stamp set:

  • leaves of the tree in Mint Macaron ink onto the front of the card base, to the left
  • sentiment in Versamark ink onto a Soft Sea Foam banner from the kit, then heat embossed in copper

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • 4-1/4″ x 1-1/2″ patterned piece glued onto the front of the card base
  • piece of ribbon from the kit notched at one end using Paper Snips, then adhered onto the back of the sentiment at the end
  • sentiment glued onto the patterned piece
  • tree die cut glued over the stamped leaves and the sentiment
  • optional: Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base

Assembled the bag:

  • folded over the top of the bag and burnished the fold with a Bone Folder
  • text piece from the kit clipped onto the top of the bag with a Mini Library Clip
  • ribbon from the kit tied in a bow, then adhered onto the text piece with a Mini Glue Dot
