DCBD #138

I want to be honest. I get tired of always starting each new post with the same thing. I really want to try and be a little different each time in what I say.

As most of you know July has a saying. If you haven't figured it out by looking at my creation, I guess I will have to just tell you. Well, it is, "Christmas in July!" I thought it would be fun to try out the new SU! fancy favor bag #115965 that I purchased to one day make favors for my younger daughter's wedding day. Since this weeks challenge was to use any SU! die with the Big Shot I thought this was a great time to try it.
After I made the fancy favor bag, I decided to make a 3 x 3 card to go along with it. I was going to attach a tag to the handle of the bag, but it would have covered up the front too much.


Please take the time to see what all of the other Diva's have come up with for this challenge. You can just click on this web address http://www.divacoffeebreakdesigns.blogspot.com/ and it will take you right there.

Some of you may think the price of this die is way too much to buy. Here are some uses that I know it could be used for: baby showers, wedding showers, birthday parties, gift cards, teacher gifts, and for someone in the hospital. I am sure there are more, but these are ones that I could think of fairly quickly. Because of all of the uses, I believe it is worth the investment.
Here are the supplies used for these items. Fancy Favor Bag: night of navy, whisper white textured cardstock, and ballet blue cardstock; Ink: whisper white craft; Tools: big shot, fancy favor die, and snowflake #2 die; Accessories: clear rhinestone brads, and iridescent ice embossing powder; stamp sets: snow swirled and Christmas punch
3 x 3 card: night of navy, whisper white, ballet blue, and whisper white textured cardstock; Stamp set: Christmas punch; Ink: night of navy classic, and whisper white craft; Tools: wide oval punch; Accessories: iridescent ice embossing powder
Ok! Now it is your turn to do this challenge. I want to see what you can come up with. Once again thanks for looking.
Now Go-N-Stamp!
