VC Rocks 2nd Blog Hop - Any Size Card

Hello to all my blogging friends, I hope this post finds you all well and happy!

Yippee it is our second blog hop of the summer here at VC Rocks. This months theme is to create
Any Size Cards.  You came all the way from Hawaii to visit my blog.  www.robinscraftroom.com Wasn't Robins  creations gorgeous. She is so Uber talented, Aloha Robin !
If you get lost along the way and or would like to start from the beginning please click here http://vcrocks.blogspot.com/
After a long time spent in contemplation over what to come up with for this blog hop. I decided to create a gift card set. We always need one of these right! The set includes  6 - 3x3 cards with envelopes, one larger card , and a beautiful gift bag to put all  the little cards in. It is very easy to make and is well received.
Here it is
This is a simple brown paper lunch sack that I decorated with the new In Color Midnight Muse and new DSP Comfort Cafe. I also included Cajon Craze and Marina Mist. for the extra layers. The handle is made with  Soft Suede Polka Dot Ribbon . The closure is a  pretty Antique Brad. I thought the front and side panels needed some extra texture,so I ran the panels through the Big Shot and used the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Embossing Folder. I used the Top Note Die to create the lid . I love this die as it always makes a great  flowing cover.
Here is a side view
Here is a look at the six 3x3 cards
I really like using the Bitty Banners and the Itty Bitty Stamps. They come in really handy for small sentiments. The pretty lace border is another new product called Finishing Touches Edgelits.
I wasn't quite sure I would like the new yellow color Summer Star Fruit, but it matches perfectly with the other new In Colors and this DSP .

Here is a look at the larger card. I gave a sneak peek of it  yesterday on my blog for the Sketch Frenzy Friday  Mini Blog Hop.
Now for a look at the complete set.


I hope you enjoyed my projects today.  If you have additional questions please do not hesitate to leave me a message and I will get back to you ASAP. Enjoy the rest of our weekend and out Any Size Card Blog Hop.
Your next stop on the hop will be to visit the very talented Kimber Dunn www.chaosinheels.wordpress.com
