Noel Tilda & A Gift Bag.

Good morning, crafty bloggers.
I hope you are well and enjoying Sunday.
I can't believe it's the 1st of December already and I still have lots of festive things I want to make before the big day.
Today I have made a gift bag featuring Noel Tilda. I just love this cute little lady.
I bought the bag from Cuddly Buddly.
I have cut Maja Design "It's Christmas Time" papers from Dies To Die For with GoKreate frilly frames #2 and lightly sanded the edges.
The white lace is from Joanna Sheen.
I cut a Sizzix circle die with Neenah cardstock and stamped Noel Tilda onto it with "rich Cocoa" Memento ink.
I have coloured Noel Tilda with Polychromos pencils.
. I cut a a Sizzix scallop circle with green card and matted the image onto it.
The poinsettias are Marianne Designs die. I cut them with Bazzill paper and inked the edges with white pigment ink. For the centres I have used frosted berries from Live & Love crafts.
The green pine branches are Cheery Lynn and the woodland branches are Martha Stewart.
The trees and deer are Marianne Design.
I have inked the edges of the trees with Tim Holtz "tea dye" distress ink and coated them with
Snow~ Tex from Live & Love Crafts
I have used Frantage shabby white embossing enamel from Live & Love Crafts on the deer.
The sentiment is Magnolia vintage Christmas post mark. I stamped the sentiment with "rich cocoa" Memento ink and cut around it.
I have made the bow on the bag handle with white shabby seam binding and placed 2 gold jingle bells in the centre with white cotton perle.
The binding and bells are from Live & Love Crafts.

I have dotted her cheeks with a Inkssentials opaque white pen.
I hope you like my creation?

Thank you for stopping by today and big thanks for all the lovely comments I receive.
