Ombre Gift Bags and a Latch Fold Birthday Card

I really enjoy giving small gifts and these Ombre Gift Bags are perfect for any occasion! You get 20 bags in a package–4 of each color (Evening Evergreen, Fresh Freesia, Pale Papaya, Polished Pink and Soft Succulent). My bag is a little crinkled at the top–I used this for my Facebook Live demonstration.

To Make the Gift Bags:

I used Polished Pink ink and the Color & Contour Bundle. Using the flower stamp and Polished Pink ink, I stamped my sentiment on a piece of Basic White cardstock and the flowers on the gift bag. Using a two-step stamping technique, I stamped the outline of the flower and then stamped off once before filling in the flower. This allows for a lighter shade.

Die cut out your flower and sentiment. Adhere ribbon behind your sentiment tag, pop your flower up on some dimensionals, add some bling and this gift bag is done! Isn’t this just a fabulous way to add a personal touch to your gift?!!?

For the Card:

Cut the base of your card (Polished Pink cardstock) at 5-1/2″ x 6-1/2″. Score 2-1/4″ along the long side. Cut another piece of Polished Pink at 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″.

For your DSP ( I used the 2021-2023 6″ x 6″ In Color DSP), cut one piece at 2″ x 5-1/4″ and another piece at 3-1/4″ x 2-1/2″.

Basic White cardstock at 4″ x 5-1/4″ (inside layer of your card).

You can watch this YouTube video I did a few weeks ago to see how I made the card. The card in the video was made using the Flowering Cactus set. No worries, the layout is the same. Watch here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ObcTKS2Gi-Q&t=2s
