Coordinating Gift Card & Bag Set-Part 1

Happy Daisy Card

Have you ever wanted just the right gift card and coordinating bag for that little something you'd love to give?  Well, why not make your own!  

Your time and care in creating these are heartfelt gifts as well!  

Once I had my idea, my 5 gift bags and cards came together in no time at all!  You, too, can make these!  Today's post will be a card tutorial.  Later in the week, we'll review how the coordinating bags were decorated.  Let's get started!

I used 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 White Daisy cards with envelopes for card bases.  White Daisy and Sea Glass Cardstock were used for the flowers. My Flower Market Cricut cartridge made cutting the layers of the Daisy (page 46) super easy!  

For our card, the flowers were cut with the feature key, <Daisy>Flower-1.  
The Daisy petals on the card are made with Sea Glass cardstock.  I cut the base layer at 2 1/2" as well as the linked White Daisy cardstock center.  The additional layer of petals was cut at 1 1/2" of the same <Daisy>Flower-1 key. Super easy!  A little bit of Clear Shimmer brushed over the petals adds a touch of sparkle, and Liquid Glass on the center adds shine.  So pretty! 

Papers in the Rustic Home Collection are wonderfully complementary with the Sea Glass Color of the Year.  Use of the Linen Weave and Swiss Dot papers allow your eye to rest.  I love the versatility of this collection and have always been a fan of multi-functioning items! What about you?  

For the card, I cut the Linen pattern paper to 3 1/2 x 4 1/4" and the Swiss Dot paper 1 x 3 1/2".  I adhered these pieces as shown on the card using a tape runner.  Foam tape was used to assemble the Sea Glass Daisy to give it dimension.  

This card was fun to design and make.  It can be given with a simple stamped sentiment and/or a quick hand written note for a multitude of occasions.  Hand crafted cards are such a lovely way to show you care and provide a welcome paper hug.  

Until next time --

Thank you so much for visiting!

I enjoy hearing from you!  Have a wonderful day!
