Too Many Shoes? Never!

     Welcome to February for Creative Expressions, a new month means new stamps and this month's selection are perfect for those girly cards and gifts, they also work well for Mother's Day.
     I have chosen to use 'Shoes' for my little gift bag. There is also a quote with the picture stamp from Marilyn Monroe, 'Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world'.
   
   
     The bag is made from a 12x12 paper I had in my stash, although the shape can be cut from an A4 sheet. I have used extra card on the inside at the top to reinforce the handle holes, just in case the gift is small but heavy. With the addition of ribbon handles it makes a small neat little bag.
     The image is stamped and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Lava Black, it has a great burgundy sheen to it that goes well with the pink paper. It was then cut out using a Spellbinder die and inked around the edge with Distress Ink Victorian Velvet before removing the die, this gives a neat white edge all the way around the shape. The image panel is then stuck on to the bag with foam pads.
 

I would like to enter my gift bag in the following challenges:
Eclectic Ellapu - Burgundy, Red and Cream 
Robyn's Fetish - Anything Goes #249
