The Jaded Blossom October release is almost here! The design team will begin sharing makes every day this week leading up to release. For Day 4, I'd love to share the hilarious Succulent Christmas! Comprised of three cacti dressed for the holidays, this set will make even the prickliest crack a smile.
I couldn't wait to play with the Paper Bag Die from last month's release and thought I would make wee gift bag to hold some fun cacti gifts. I hacked apart a cheap brown paper bag and used that paper for my treat bag. I stamped the Santa cactus and colored him up with Copic markers, adding googly eyes for an even sillier image. To add some southwestern flair, I cut some patterned paper using the Diamond Dies and adhered to the front of my treat bag as a fun background element. For added sarcasm (I thought), I stamped the sentiment "#christmascheer from Christmas Coffee Art using VersaMark watermark ink on the bottom right corner. The main sentiment was stamped onto white cardstock and die cut with Word Bubble Dies.
On the inner bag flap, seen when the bag is empty, I curved the beautiful "merry christmas" script from Sweets of the Season to follow the curve of the treat bag and stamped with VersaFine Onyx black ink. He makes me giggle.
