An Envelope and Gift Bag

Hello friends!!
I'm back again sharing with you the very last post for this year and it's NOT a card. Hehehe :D Jokes apart, recently though, I had been asked by my cousin to create a very large gift bag approximately measuring 20 inches X 15 inches in size. She wanted to gift to her MIL and she wanted an exclusive envelope to go with it and this is what I came up with.
The sad part though, is that the pictures I clicked are from my phone camera and are not very good quality ones. So please bear with me!

The gift envelope :

 The gift bag! 

 A close up of the decorated panel :

Since the gift bag was very large in size, the only thing I could think of creating was to create a panel for it which I did using cardstock and DCWV pattern paper. I have added punched laces using the Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch colored with Tim Holtz Distress Stains- Spun Sugar. The flowers and the leaves are created using Cheery Lynn Medium Tea Rose die. I'm totally in love with this die as this helps cut five different layers of flowers in one go plus it also cut and embosses the leaves, all in one go. This really saves time on die-cutting and plus the results are really beautiful. :-) I've used handmade paper to create my roses and leaves.

The gift envelope was embossed using Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder and added a Spellbinders die panel and again used the Cheery Lynn Tea Rose Medium die to make my flowers and foliage. The glittered alphabets are die-cut using glittered Washi tape and Memory Box Alphabet Soup die.
