Gina K Inspiration Blog Hop Day 3

Hello! The Gina K Design Team are blog hopping once again. Today we are featuring two more stamp sets, Beyond Baskets 2 and Christmas Joy. I used images from Melanie Muenchinger's super fun Beyond Baskets 2 for my card. More details about the card below.

To make my card, I started by stamping the big gift bag using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then cut out the image using scissors. I sponged around the edges of the bag using Gina K Kraft ink.

I added just a bit more shading with my W3 Copic marker.

For the braided rope, I colored with R24.

I used a snowflake image, from my set, Let It Snow, inked with Gina K Dark Chocolate, but stamped off first to make the images lighter.

I used another snowflake, this time with Gina K Faded Brick ink. I stamped off again to make the images lighter. For the one just under the fold over the braided rope, I masked off so it would look like the rest of the snowflake was hidden behind the rope and fold.

I trimmed a piece of Pure Luxury Dark Chocolate cardstock to 5 by 3 3/4 inches and stamped more snowflakes with VersaMark ink. The VersaMark is colorless, but creates a watermark type of image behind.

The bag was adhered to the brown layer with dimensional adhesives and I tucked a piece of red tissue paper behind it. The sentiment, also from Beyond Baskets 2, was stamped on white cardstock and cut out, then adhered to the bag. I added three Gina K Coffee House Mix buttons to embellish and layered with a piece of Pure Luxury Cherry Red and an Ivory card base (5 1/2 by 4 1/4 inches).

Thanks for visiting. Have a fabulous day!
