Christmas Gift Bag

Hello Friends,
I have another Christmas project to share with you created with the beautiful Creative Expressions Craft Dies designed by Sue Wilson. This collection of Christmas dies is called Festive Collection. For this Christmas gift bag I used Vintage Bauble, this die set is just gorgeous, so intricate and detailed. 

These are the Craft Dies by Sue Wilson I used to create this project:

    Festive Collection Vintage Bauble       Californian Collection Hollywood Die

    Finishing Touches Collection Classic 3D Bow Die     Sue Wilson Designs - Finishing Touches - Lattice Bow

I started by covering the bag front panel with designer paper. I die cut the Vintage Baubles with gold metallic cardstock and the background with designer paper. I glued both pieces together and adhered to front of bag with foam squares.
I die cut the corner and small frame in the Vintage Bauble set and adhered to bag as shown. I stamped sentiment with black ink onto creme cardstock. I traced around sentiment using the small frame, I then cut, inked edges with distress ink and glued to frame.
The bag topper was die cut with Hollywood and gold metallic cardstock and then glued to designer paper. I creased in the middle with a scoring board, then folded and glued to bag.
The bow was die cut with Classic 3D Bow and Lattice 3D Bow and then glued to bag.
