Oldie But Goodie, Poppi Xmas Snowballs!

Hello, it's Oldie But Goodie day at Catch The Bug! Today I made a card using Poppi Xmas Snowballs from Bugaboo Stamps, this image always makes me smile!

I coloured the image with copics and added some shimmer with Wink of Stella brushes in red and white. All the papers were in my scrap bin, and the white piece was even embossed already (with decorative dots embossing folder).

I also used this weeks Saturday Sketch #336.

ABC, Paper Treat Purse!

 Hello, it's Anything But A Card day at Catch The Bug, and today I have a Paper Treat Purse! I saw these purses on Pinterest and wanted to try them out. I started with a 8.5" square piece of cardstock. Then score opposite sides at 3.5" and the other 2 sides at 2".The finished bag is 4.5" wide by 3.5" tall (not counting the handles)
  I covered the front and back with white cardstock embossed with a snowflake embossing folder. The image here is Candy Cane Bear from Bugaboo Stamps. I coloured him with copics and cut out with oval/scallop nesties.
 This is the inside, it fits candy and a gift card easily, perfect for Christmas. I also wanted to show you the closure I used. I can never find thin magnetic closures here, so I spotted these at the $ store. They're plastic snaps with sticky tape on them.
I just cut it in half and stuck it in place, super easy and inexpensive, plus they don't add any weight!

Have a Great Day!
