Card & Matching Bag!!

Hello Blog friends and faithful followers, great to have you call in.  
We have had the most amazing day here in the North East of Scotland, the sun was shining from very early and guess what ... it is still shining.  It was actually warm enough for "me" to sit out for a little while this afternoon. That`s the first time that has happened this year ... onwards and upwards ... summer might just be coming at long last!!!
Enough chit/chat, here is a card and matching bag I made as an order for Mrs McGowan one of my neighbours.  When she phones I always ask "is it to be posted or handed over".  This one was to be handed over and could she please have flowers on it.  I usually make a box but decided to make a bag just for a little change.  I am pleased to say Mrs McGowan was over the moon with it.

Card and bag made with 300gsm white card and SW blue card
Flowers and leaves are Dies I have had for ages and no packets for them
Handles are made using Tonic Circle Dies
That`s it for today
Thank you so much for your visit I really appreciate it

  1. Absolutely gorgeous Patricia! Beautiful flowers adorning the card and bag in a lovely colour combination. Wonderfully made bag with those fab handles. Your neighbours must be so happy to have you to make their cards, boxes and bags and so much more luxurious ones than shop bought. Have a lovely day. Debra x

  5. Hi Patricia,
    what a very stunning card and bag.
    No wonder your neighbour loved them they look so gorgeous.
    Love the colours and the gorgeous flowers too.
    Can I ask do you make the bags, and if you do what GSM do you use on them.
    Hope the Sun is still shining today.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  6. Jenny I use nothing less than 270gsm preferably 300gsm and Kraft Card for making bags and boxes.
    For a simple one like above possibly 250gsm
