A "Loyal" Matching Gift Set
Hello Authentique fans, Heather here with another blog post. This time I'm focusing on how to use those little scraps and Details stickers. For today's post, I have a card and matching bag with a gift tag. I find that it is often really nice to take the extra step from simply making a lovely card, to decorating a little kraft bag with scraps and stickers to match.
For the bag itself, I took scraps and pieces of the Loyal Collection (Honest, Brave, Durable) and solids from the Free Bird Nest including Comfort and Familiar. I really wanted to use the little Detail with the silhouette of the man's hat and mustache, so used a fun mustache stamp in both a chalk ink (tag) and using clear embossing powder (the bag).Loyal and Free Bird papers, notch opposite corners using my Corner Chomper, and laying them all in their future spots before gluing down. I filled in spaces with Diction phrases, or Details stickers, then added a couple of matching buttons.
Steady, Brave and Honest papers, along with another backing of Free bird, Detail stickers, button and ribbon. I used dimensional adhesive to make the mustache Detail stand out.
