Celebrate World Card Making Day!

Today I'm excited to be joining with card makers around the world in celebrating World Card Making Day.  And what better way to celebrate than by making a card!  Our favorite thing to do, right??!  I've linked up to today's Blog Tour with Paper Crafts Magazine - a great way to see lot's of wonderful creations!

I love making gift bags and boxes as well as cards so I often incorporate my stamping onto these items.  Here I made a set of a gift bag and card - using the same stamp sets on both articles.

The stamps are from Vintage Garden Seed Packet and Vintage Garden Produce from Waltzingmouse.

I tied a bow with two shades of orange wrinkled seam tape, knotted a piece of button twine around the bow and sewed it to the top of the canvas muslin bag with one stitch so it would stay on through openings and closings of the bag!
 Here it is pulled open so you can see the stampings better!
Thanks so much for stopping by -  did you make a card today?!  Leave me a comment - I'd love to some see it!

Stamps: Waltzingmouse - carrot image, carrot, Davcus Carota from Vintage Garden Produce set; Vegetable, For my Friend, Thank You from Vintage Garden Seed Packet set.
Card Stock: Rustic Cream, Orange Zest - PaperTrey Ink;  
Dye Ink: Tangelo- Memento; 
Accessories: wrinkled seam tape - Prairie Bird Boutique Etsy Shop; twine - Waltzingmouse;  canvas muslin bag - Pouch Mart.
