The Gift of Christmas

Hey Whimsy fans, I'm excited to be sharing with you today, a brand new range to Whimsy Stamps! Whimsy has recently taken on the CC Designs range of Rustic Sugar digital images and I for one am absolutely delighted as I LOVE these sweet images. I've chosen to create a Christmas Gift Bag with this sweet image.

The bag is quite a large size, 28cm x 21cm and was a plain red base with kraft handles. It's not 'new' as I'm all about recycling! It was a gift bag one of the kiddies got last year, so I kept it, especially as it was plain and would make such a great base! So I get extra satisfaction from being able to pretty up and reuse/upcycle an old gift bag.

This sweet image is one of my favourites from this newly released range. I think this wee elf is just so cute! I kept the colours very simple focusing on the traditional Christmas colours of red, green and white with a touch of sparkly silver.

Here's a closer peek at the elements used in this creation. I've added a paper with stripey Christmas colours to create the main background element and then layered over top a pretty red paper with a soft sheen to it and a square diecut from soft green card. I added a doily behind the image and then adhered the layers to the bag base with strong double sided wonder tape.

To finish off this design I used a lovely diecut Poinsettia, which was cut with a fabulous Whimsy Stamps die set. I've used a pretty paper with a lovely satin sheen to it and in reality it's absolutely lush. I topped off the Poinsettia with the little diecut centre from the set and finished it with a gold flatback pearl in the centre.
