It’s SUNDAY with TAMIBELLA!

www.stampingbella.com: rubber stamp used: TINY TOWNIE UNICORN. card by Tamara Potocnik
Hi!
Tamara here with you.For this week’s post I made a girly gift bag. This project first started as a card. I coloured the image, cut all the papers and then just before gluing it down, I changed my mind and made a gift bag. This bag is just big enough to add some candies or a small gift inside.Image used on this project is called Tiny Townie Unicorn and she’s GORGEOUS!!! Love, love, love Tiny Townie stamps. They are so awesome!!Sentiment used comes with the image. I cut it apart and only used the first line “Everyone needs a little”, the sentiment then goes on “magic, even if they’re all grown up”. I replaced the stamped word magic with die cut and left out the rest of the sentiment.

Sentiment used comes with the image. I cut it apart and only used the first line “Everyone needs a little”, the sentiment then goes on “magic, even if they’re all grown up”. I replaced the stamped word magic with die cut and left out the rest of the sentiment.

To decorate the card I added a few chipboard stars and lots of glitter to her flowers and outfit. Image was stamped using Archival Ink – Jet black and then coloured up with Distress Ink pads.

Distress Ink pads colours used:
skin: vintage photo
cheeks: worn lipstick
hair: antique linen, walnuts stain
dress: victrian velvet, black soot

Apply adhesive on one the 0.5″ sections

Fold down the front panel and line the flip mechanism with the bottom of the front panel.
Press down firmly to secure the mechanism to the inside front.
