Masculine Well Worn

Hi there

As I type this the wind is howling outside - a good day to be indoors crafting!

A couple of the guys at work have birthdays (today & tomorrow) so I thought I'd make them a card and small gift to mark their 'special' day.  I've used Well Worn DSP for both projects and cased the cards from our demo site Stampin Connection.

I really like the clean and simple look of this card and how an embossing folder can transform a piece of plain card stock.  The base of the bag is made using the scallop square die and is filled with Jaffas.

The recipient of the second gift is heading to Canada for a holiday to see family so the bag is filled with Kiwi icons in the chocolate department - Pineapple Lumps and Jaffas.  I've also included a packet of travel tissues. I showed this bag in an earlier post here but needed to make it more masculine so just used the wide ribbon as a strap rather than handles.

Stamp - Bring on the Cake, Word Play

Well I'm going to do some more creating this afternoon so I can have some more posts to show you during the week.  Don't forget that the Autumn/Winter mini finishes on Tuesday so if you'd like to order anything from it let me know by Monday night.

Keep warm and I'll catch you later.
