Best Birds Card and Gift Bag

I think this is such a beautiful card, made using Best Birds photopolymer stamp set and Birds and Blooms thinlits dies.  The images were stamped and cut out using the dies, and mounted on Very Vanilla card stock to give three dimensional effect. Colours used are very vanilla, powder pink, old olive, lemon lime twist and daffodil delight.

Card Size 4 x 4"
Very Vanilla card stock 8 x 4" scored at 4"
Old Olive card stock 33/4 x 33/4"
Daffodil Delight DSP 31/2 x 31/2"
Lemon and Lime Twist card stock 23/4 x 23/4"
Very Vanilla card stock 21/2 x 21/2"

Best Birds and Birds and Blooms Thinlits Dies used to make this beautiful little gift bag measuring 31/2 x 31/4 x 11/2"

This is the template with cutting and scoring for the gift bag.

Vanilla card stock 81/4 x 63/4"
Score long side at 31/4 , 43/4 , 8"
Score on short side 11/2 and 51/4"
Two pieces of DSP 31/8 x 31/8"

Very Vanilla card stock 4 x 21/8" scored at 2" on long side
DSP 33/4 x 17/8"

DSP 1 x 51/2"
Score at 1/2" down the length of paper and  fold and glue together making a strip for the handle measuring 1/2 x 51/2".  Using Bone folder gently run this down the paper causing it to curve.

This is one of the 11/2" side pieces of the bag, find the half way mark at 3/4" and score down for 11/2".  This will help the bag to close neatly when assembled.

This is the fastener of the bag, glue the DSP onto the very vanilla card stock and score and fold at 2" on long side.  To make the curved effect on each end I used the Pretty Label Punch.   One half is  glued to the back of the bag and the other half is folded forward to form the fastener, attach a Velcro fastener to close the bag.  The front of the bag was decorated with images and cut outs using Best Birds photopolymer stamp set and Birds and Blooms Thinlits Dies, attached using dimensionals for 3D effect.  The handle was attached to either side of the bag at the back using glue dots.
