Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #89 Matching Tag/Card & Bag/Box/Paper

Welcome to our latest challenge, hosted by Carole who has chosen the theme 'Tag/Card with matching Gift Wrap, Bag or Box'

Carole would like to see a card or a tag with a complimentary matching gift wrap, bag or box. Any style just as long as it matches!

Please ensure your project has the two matching features to qualify for a winner or Top 5 slot.

PLEASE BE SURE TO CHECK OUT THE RULES BEFORE ADDING YOUR CREATION AND CHECK IT MEETS THE CRITERIA AS LAID OUT ABOVE - ANY ENTRY NOT COMPLYING WILL UNFORTUNATELY BE REMOVED.


I loved creating for this weeks challenge.  Not only are one of the sponsors the wonderful Paper Shelter (who I personally cannot get enough of),  but I was also doing something completely out of my comfort zone.

I have only ever created cards, so doing a matching set was exciting but also very daunting.  I had many nights dreaming of how to put it all together and ended up with way too many ideas and had to curb my embellishment enthusiasm!!!

So here is the finished set, I have used the gorgeous 'Magic Bubble Bath' from The Paper Shelter and created a card, mini bag and oversized tag.



The digi was coloured using my pro markers and I added glossy accents to the bubbles to make them shine as though they were wet.

Card


Tag


Bag 



I used several Cricut Cartidges to create this set as follows:

Velum Flowers -  Flower Shoppe
Oversize Tag, Soap Bottle & Perfume Bottle - Splish Splash
Scalloped Layers - Cricut craftroom Basics

The Papers are Promises from NitWits
Aqua Card - Papermania  Shimmer Cardstock
Purple Card - Do Crafts Textured Cardstock
Silver Paper - I got this eons ago at a local craft show
The Sentiment is LOTV

Ribbon, pearls and gems are all from my craft stash.
