Ismaki #28 ~ birthday bag

The Ismaki sketch #28 this week was designed by Kianel, as soon as I saw it I knew it would produce some very special cards. I have seen a few of them and they are stunning!
Here is my take on the sketch, took me ages to even decide what to do with it!
I used a paper bag as my base and turned over the bottom of the bag then folded the rest in half to make a kind of book. The top edge of the bag remains open so I can use it to pop in
images or a gift card.
I used Magnolia stamps from the new Summer Party set, these are the perfect stamps for a birthday, I love the glass of fizzy! I only just realised though that I coloured the bottles of wine red and they are in an ice bucket, doh...well maybe they are sparkling rose! Yes, of course that is what I meant to do!!!
Here you can see the opening ready to pop in images to send as a gift to a friend!
Supplies: Brown Paper bag
DP ~ Basic Grey 'Infuse'
Stamps ~ Magnolia 'Summer Party', Basic Grey ' Winterland'
Embellishments ~ flowers all from Prima, Charm K & Co 'Beyond Postmarks', Dovecraft Charm Brad, pearls Kaiser from TracyJaneCrafts, spacers from Jeneca-beads, brad, lace and ribbon all unknown origin

This is FANTASTIC! What an amazing gift! I've made paper bag albums before, but never a paper bag card! CUTE! OMG, I love that Prima on the cover of the card . . . is that the design, or did you stamp on it? Love it!

What a great idea to use a bag as a base, I really love the way it came out.

Deb, I love this paper bag card! What a creative idea...love it! If you don't mind me asking, what size bag did you us? The lunch bag size or bigger? I would love to try and make one but I know it won't even compare to what you have done here!!!! Love the paper, the colours and those Magnolia stamps are my favourite!
