Do You Have A Summer Wedding to Attend?

 Here's a great card for an upcoming wedding.  I saw a treat bag made by Tootsy on Splitcoaststampers  and love it.  I decided to make it into a card as well as a treat bag.  Here's how it turned out. 

I absolutely loved the Artisan Embellishment kit in the Occasions catalog but it went away too quick.  Did you get one too?  Since you only got two of the beautiful rose stencils, I didn't want to use them up.  I found a video from Deb Valder where she clear embossed both sides of one of them and used it as a stencil with sponging.  From there, I got this idea - I took the stencil and put black paper behind it and scanned it into my computer.  From there, I took it into Photoshop, reversed the colors and then used the brush tool to widen a couple of the areas that were super thin.  I then saved the file as a .png file and converted it to an .svg file.  From there, I imported it into an .fcm file which my Scan N Cut uses and cut it out using the e-cutter.  Now I can have as many of these as I want - and in any color! 
 Here is the inside of the card.  Next you will see a surprise to this card .....
It's a gift card holder too!  The patterned paper was cut using the treat bag die and then I trimmed off the serrated top.  Lots of embellishment to this card including the cute bow using the Bow Builder punch.  Here's a video on making these bows, with some helpful hints as well as a bunch of other bows you can make - thanks to Brenda Quintana.
