The Bag

  1. Use your bag die and your big shot pro to make the it. Fold and build it using the instructions inside the die package.
  2. Make a snowflake rosette and be sure to not waste the border is left from the die cutting.
  3. With the hot gun glue adhere the snowflake to the bag. add a pearl in the centre.
  4. Stamp and emboss the "have a jolly holiday" but this time cut only the phrase with the circle framelits.
  5. Cut another circle bigger than the first with the phrase and make a little hole to hold them to the bag.
  6. Complete with twine, Christmas bell and white wool.
  7. Finish it spraying iridescent gold glimmer mist and opaque white mister huey's.

The card
  1. Cut a stripe of kraft paper of 12x30 cm and fold it in half.
  2. Cut a rectangle from the white card stock of 11x14 cm. Now use a versamark ink pad for embossing and stamp with the big snowflake stamps. Emboss them with the white powder. at the end emboss the snowflakes with the appropriated embossing folder.
  3. Glue this rectangle on the front cover.
  4. Glue the paper doily cut in half and on it what is left from the snowflake rosette, I have used the border is left :) 
  5. Cut a circle from the gold glitter card stock and adhere it.
  6. Stamp and emboss the greetings phrase using the gold powder and snowflake tag and stamp.
  7. Stick it on the gold circle with 3d double side tape.
  8. Add simply the red and white twine, the white wool and a Christmas bell making a knot.
