Chocolate and Strawberry Bag

I saw this challenge over on Papertake and I knew I had to take part as the examples shown by Claudia and the Papertake Design team are fabulous.....all I had to do was choose the DP card...and to complicate matters I needed two sheets of it...and I decided upon some wonderful card from K&Company Brenda Walton Chocolate Neapolitan range.

I followed the instructions on the Papertake blog for the larger of the two bags.. Once it had been assembled, I took some co-ordinating card and created a band to go around the middle, onto which I also mounted some chocolate coloured satin ribbon. Using my small scalloped circles and my large circle Nestabilites and Cuttlebug I cut and embossed 3 layers from the Chocolate Strawberry card range at Craftwork cards. The largest diecut is actually a very fine ribbled card and the most beautiful soft pink, using a fine marker I went around the embossed edge with little dots. The smallest diecut had the same treatment with the edition of a stamped image from the Brenda Walton Collection of Clear Stamps, using Versacolor ink. The three diecuts were layered onto of each other and placed in the centre at the front of the bag. For the handles I simply choose some co-ordinating pink grosgrain.
