A different take on the "Green Bag"

This card brings a whole new meaning to the words "Green Bag" - and it's my take on the eco-bag!
This card was made using my Coluzzle circle template, making sure 1 edge of the circle was hanging over my folded card edge so that it was not cut (the bottom of the bag). I stamped it with the Birch trunk stamp from Sunshine Designs - from the Stamp Barn. I decorated the front of my "bag" and then punched out the bag handle with my oval punch. That same oval punch made the tab that folds over and closes the bag. To keep that fold over sealed at the front, I used some adhesive Velcro so that the bag actually opens. Such a great idea for a gift card!
And here is all views of the card (bag): closed, open and the Velcro dot closure.
Until next time, have a great day!
