Graphic 45 Botanical Tea Card and Gift Bag

Today I made a Graphic 45 Botanical Tea card and gift bag for a dear friend of mine, she really loves tea and tea pots, so when Graphic 45 released Botanical Tea I just had to get her a set of the stamps, what better way to give her the stamps but to make her a card and gift bag.

Here is a list of the supplies that I used which are available on the Cut at Home website.
Spellbinders Elegant Ovals – SKU: S4-425, these are a new release.
Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Ovals, small – SKU: S4-113
Graphic 45 Botanical Tea 12 x 12 Paper – SKU: 4500889
Graphic 45 Stamps 1 – SKU: IC0296
Graphic 45 Stamps 2 – SKU: IC0297
Sizzix Big Shot – SKU: 657900

I also used the following from my stash:
Memories Dye Ink – Artprint Brown, VersaMark ink, Zing Embossing powder – Chestnut, Martha Stewart border punch, BoBunny Gabrielle Brads, Ribbon, Lace, Flowers and a kraft bag/card stock.

The technique that I demonstrated today is stamping and embossing on patterned paper. See the video below.

I cut a 7 x 10 piece of kraft card stock and scored it to make a 7 x 5 inch card. I used three different patterns from the Botanical Tea paper pack. I stamped my images, then I used a Martha Stewart border punch and Spellbinders dies to cut out my stamped images. I also inked the edges of my cut out pieces, then I assembled my card.
I also stamped a sentiment for the inside of my card as well as embossed a teapot to use inside the card.
Next I made my gift bag. I random stamped the bag with two of the stamps from the set, then I stamped a sentiment on the patterned paper, die cut them and adhered them to the bag. I also bordered the top of the bag to match the border on the card and added a couple of the flowers and brads.
Here is another look at the card and gift bag, I cannot wait to give it to my friend!
I hope that you enjoyed my project, till next time Thanks and Happy Scrappin.
