It’s a wrap shopping bag

 Continuing with the It’s a Wrap stamp set #123592 from the Stampin Up IBC, I stamped and embossed 3 of the images to get different textures for the shopping bags. I cut them out and adhered 1/8 ” black taffeta ribbon #119261 to them to form the handles.  I punched coordinating hot pink tissue using the postage stamp punch #122344 and added to the shopping bags.  One of the bags has a heart punched from the small heart punch #117193.

THe card base is pretty in pink cardstock embossed with the heart texture plate from the adorning accents texture folders #125601 from the new Stampin Up occasions mini catalog.  I then added a bow using the black 1 1/4 ” striped ribbon and layered the Happiest Birthday wishes from Hostess stamp set #122617 to create a coordinating accent.

The best part of this card you cannot see- it is the inside sentiment and my inspiration for this card- it says… the world got a present the day you were born.  So I created a card with presents to use this stamp set.  This card took a lot of time because of all the detail but I like how it turned out and used it as my second swap for the regional Stampin Up convention.
