The gorgeous papers in the Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP started things off. The color palette of Cherry Cobbler, Pool Party and Petal Pink was perfect for my Parisian gift bag.

Stamping the gorgeous cherry blossom branch in Basic Gray gave the gift bag a vintage look. And I’m all about that. I used my Stampin’ Blends to color the image. To build your stash of blends, why not add a combo pack to each order. You’ll have your collection built in no time flat.

That gorgeous swirl is one of my favorite dies in the set. By cutting two from champagne foil, I really added a lot of texture and shine to my Parisian gift bag.

To give the word, amour, a little more depth and dimension I used some sticky back fun foam. By offsetting it with a cherry cobbler die cut, it really helps to pop the word on the gift bag.

Combining elements from both bundles in the Parisian Blossoms Suite made my Parisian gift bag extra special.  And that fabulous Eiffel Tower, cut from basic gray cardstock is definitely the star of the show.

The Pool Party banner really ties everything together.  And I couldn’t resist stampomg that beautiful verse.
