Tart & Tangy Tote


How cute is this tote? I followed the tutorial from a blog called Toy's Haven (http://toyzhaven.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com/2008/03/04/toys-haven-card-box-tutorial/). It was so FUN to make! I will be making 4 standard size cards with matching envelopes to fit inside. They will each have one of the fruits on them from the NEW Tart & Tangy stamp set. The strawberry on the front of the tote is from the Tart & Tangy stamp set. I stamped the strawberry in Real Red and then stamped it again in Old Olive and paper pieced the green stem over the red. It is easy to do and gives it just a little more dimension. The image is also raised with dimensionals which makes it pop a little more. What you can't see in the photo is that I faux stitched the handles all the way around with the white gel pen. It is such a FUN, BRIGHT & HAPPY project! Thanks for stopping by :-)
