Vintage Bag, Tag and Card

It's been almost a year since I last decorated a bag, and I very seldom make tags. I had already made the card when I saw the 3 piece gift set theme and I thought I'd make a matching tag and bag too.
What these projects have in common: beige and brown color scheme, kraft paper, DPs from Maja Designs, punched snowflakes and the use of Frantage and Walnut Distress Ink.

The card:
The image is part of a set of stamps from Kort&Godt. I stamped with brown ink and added clear embossing powder. The heart is cut out of corrugated paper and sprinkled with Frantage. I used a stamp to make the sentiment which translates "Christmas mail". I machine stitched with white thread around the edges and distressed the edges.

The bag:
The sentiment is part of the same set as the angel used for the card. It translates "Warm Christmas Wishes". I handcut the banner. The die cut corners are made with a Spellbinders die. The small tags are made with a stamp from LOTV, the words "to" and "from" came with a free stamp set with a magazine. I added twine and seam binding ribbon, as well as a white roses ribbon from Panduro.

The tag:
The angel image is heat embossed and placed on top of a piece of burlap. I attached the smaller tags with a star brad. The rest of the materials as indicated above.

Pia, such a great gift set! I rarely ever make tags, too, and have only decorated a couple (maybe 2) gift bags. That's why it's good to play along with challenges, since they can be, well . . . challenges. You did a fabulous job; all your elements look so beautiful together.
