I stamped the "grass" in veramark on the Pink Pirouette paper and then overstamped the flowers using Whisper White craft ink. I have lots of these Cone Flowers (Echinacea) in my own garden and they are a real workhorse type of perennial – try growing them in your own garden. I love how the flower "head" is all prickly and the actual petals droop down from the center – it's in the same family as Rudbeckia (Brown Eyed Susan) but a different flower. This lower picture shows them growing side by side. Both are blooming in my garden now so that means fall is coming – yikes!
I stamped the flowers again on my little 3 x 3 card using Whisper White craft ink and then embossing them in White. Next I took a dauber and added colour on the flowers (Pink Pirouette) and leaves (Kiwi Kiss). The embossing "resists" the ink. I punched the edge with our new scallop punch (I won't miss taking the guard off the corner rounder punch!) and added some colour along the side by using a strip of the Bella Rose Paper.
The bag has Bella Rose Paper and Rose Red grosgrain ribbon to finish it off.
To attach the card I punched a 1/4" circle in the top left corner and then used scissors to cut from the folded corner into the hole which creates a slit that can be slipped around the handle.
