Today I wanted to share my second Design Team Project using Molossi Chipboard... I love these designs, they are so easy to alter and take mediums well...
I made this Mother's Day card its called a Paper Bag Card.. I made it from a simple brown paper bag... I like that you get a lot of space and pockets to tuck things into..
I created this for my mum so I wanted it to be as special as she is to me...
I have used Kaisercraft Hidden Treasures Paper collection and the matching collectables I have used this throughout the whole card.. I have distressed all the edges, layered and masked using homemade texture paste..
I then started to cluster the middle using Kaisercraft flowers, Flowers , diecuts, Metal, lace and bling
After that I altered my chipboard using Chalk Inks and Viva Décor Inka Gold in Gold.. I have used for this card the Fluer De lis, Thank You title , Love hearts and Cupids chipboard from Molossi they are the cutest designs...
After that I then went over the whole piece with Viva Décor Inka Gold in Gold think it just finishes the project off I like to go around edges of paper, texture in the chipboard and also the edges of my flowers...

Inside Page 1:

I have created a pocket using the Brown paper bag and decorated it using the same papers..
I have added a heart and small doily to make it stand off the page..
I wanted the pocket to be a photo matt I have stamped, embellished and layered it on the one side.. On the other I have added a picture that was taken at my 21st birthday..
The photo matt can be removed if needed too..

I have kept this page simple this is for me to write my personal message..
I have again layered paper, diecuts, stamped "Happy Mother's Day", flat flowers, butterfly, floral flourish and collectable...
I decided instead of having a big pocket on the side panel I would stick it all together..

Again I have kept this simple by layered Hidden Treasures Scraps and my logo
