Cuttlebug Be inspired 48 Birthday Bag and Card

Happy Wednesday Everyone and welcome to week two of Birthday celebrations, cuttlebug challenge party palooza! This week the challenge is a simple one.... to make {or decorate} a gift bag and to make a card. Who doesn't from time to time need a bag! I know I always need one last minute! And we all can make a card! I'm Following my theme of "movie party" with this gift bag that would fit right in at tinsel town, and a gift card fit for a movie star, in the background you can catch a sneak peek of my centerpiece that I will be sharing with you in the near future! {I know your excited to see it but you will have to wait} Lets start with my gift card: the card base is very vanilla embossed with the diamond folder, the next layer is "rock star" paper stitched and stamped with stars in black, then a red core'dination star stitched along the edge, and a ticket {its a party} a crown sticker also from rock star,3 black pearls and a large grommet to attach it to your package. Quick and easy.

This tall silver gift bag, has lots of fun mixed textures, and layers. I started by adding stars in gray and red from core'dinations cut with a CB die, embossing and sanding a panel with the star folder, and making an extra long filmstrip{ This was made by folding my paper in half and placing it just above the cutting area to give me a double filmstrip} another ticket from its a party, and make a wish from CuttleBug birthday wishes die and folder combo. Top the whole thing off with a fringe of raspberry pom poms and star brads...and wah-lah!
