Frosty Winter Christmas Cards, Gift Bag and Tag with Authentique

Good morning all our Authentique Fans! Have you seen Authentique fabulous Frosty Christmas Collection with matching 12 x 12 Coordinates Papers!!! OH MY....GORGEOUS...DROOLING over the hues of purples, blues and greys!

I love to have gift bags on hand over the holidays and what better way but to create a few ahead of time. Today I created "Keep Warm and Snuggle Up" Gift bag with matching tag to share with you. Begin by layering different size pieces of the Frosty Winter pattern papers randomly on a 8" x 10" white gift bag. (I used the scraps from the cards I made below to create my bag.)

Decorate with stickers from the Frosty Winter Detail Sheet.

Add scallop borders and scallop circles behind a few of the stickers from the Frosty Winter Detail Sheet. Add to prepared bag with pop dots.

Stamp and color flower with markers; fussy cut out and layer together with pop dots. Add flower soft to center.

Add "Keep Warm and Snuggle Up" to coordinates paper. Add to top of bag.

Add a few more stickers to bag and gemstones.

Create tags with pattern paper and stickers. Add twine ties and gemstones.

"Walking in a Winter Wonderland Card " and "The Most Wonderful Time of Year" card are created to go along with the gift bag or to just send out on their own. If you look closely both cards both cards are created with the same elements.

Add chipboard frame to front of both cards. Stamp and color flower image; layer on coordinates paper. Add to front of die cut scallop frame and place on front of card with pop dots.

Add stickers from Frosty Winter Detail Sheet  to top of scallop circle place on card front along with border die cut and gemstone.

Create your "Them Most Wonderful Time of the Year..." using the same elements as above.

For the flowers just make more of the and fussy cut the leaves and stem from them. Add to front of card with pop dots. Add flower soft to centers of flowers.

Add twine bows to both card fronts. I hope you are inspired to grab those wonder Christmas Collections from Authentique to create gift bags, tags and cards to have this holiday season. Pam

  1. WOW - I just LOVE this color combination for the holidays! It's so festive without being garish and traditional without being red/green/gold. Must get it!
    Your bag is terrific. Hope you don't mind - I have every intention of swiping the design and recreating to gift some items this year!
    Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thanks Tristan, you are so sweet. Here is a FYI...make the cards first because the bag is made from the scraps, lol. Love how it turned out also. Thanks for stopping by today.
