Hi Everyone, a bit of teamwork here as I made the card and Garcia made the matching gift bag and envelope. The patterned paper that we used comes from the Ice Crystal paper pad, this 6 x 6 pad has sheets of labels and borders as well as the usual sheets of patterns, which made it really easy to get a fully co-ordinated look across the three items.
To Make the Card
Start with a white A6 blank card and layer it with dark blue card. Cut a piece of kraft card 9.7 x 7cm and dry emboss with the snowfall embossing folder, adhere this to the top portion of the card.
Cut a piece of the silver stag patterned paper again 9.7 x 7cm and adhere to the bottom portion of the card. Cut a piece of the Let it Snow border and adhere this over the join between the kraft card and the silver stag paper.
Cut out the Let it Snow label, layer this onto dark blue card and fix to the left side of the card front over the border strip using adhesive foam tape.
To Make the Gift Bag
Use kraft card for the bag, cut and score it and punch the holes for the handles, using the Gift Bag Punch Board. Use glue to seal the sides and bottom. Cut two pieces of Christmas Tree border and adhere one to the front and one to the back of the bag, add silver adhesive gems to the border on both sides. Cut two labels and again attach one to each side of the bag. Cut two lengths of silver metallic ribbon, thread them through the punched handle holes and tie on the inside to secure them.
To Make the Envelope
Use the guides and measurements on the Envelope Punch board to cut, score and fold the envelope from white 80gsm (normal printer paper) paper. Cut the liner from the same patterned paper that was used on the card. Use a paper cutter to cut it to the size of the envelope but make it about 1cm shorter to leave the border where the envelope gum will go an a couple of millimetres narrower just to make it easy to slot inside the envelope. Use the corner rounder on the punch board to round the corner of the liner to match the envelope, glue the liner in place. Spread envelope gum around the top edges of the envelope and leave it to dry.
The punch boards make it so easy to create bags and envelopes in all sorts of shapes and sizes, as they come with full instructions and a guide to the size of card or paper that you need to start off with.
