Hello everybody! Vanessa here today with a little project for you. Our November theme is gift giving, so I made a Christmas gift bag. I love the rustic feel of burlap and thought it would look nice together with a chalkboard look. I played around and here comes the result:
I first trimmed a piece of black card stock to fit my burlap bag. Then I stamped and heat-embossed the joy from The Big, the Bold and the Merry using white embossing powder. To create the chalkboard look, I added a shadow to the word with a white pencil, drew a frame with the pencil and smeared some white pigment ink over the panel. The panel was adhered to the burlap bag using strong tape. Now I stamped the pinecones, berries and branches from Winter Woodland repeatedly onto card stock and cut them all out. Then I arranged them to create the wreath and adhered all elements, popping up some with foam tape.
I hope you like my rustic gift bag!
Thanks for stopping by today!
