Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge

Oh boy! I had a great weekend! How about you?  We got to see both our kiddos!  There was no crafting for me this past weekend, but we sure did enjoy seeing the kids.

My card for today is for the Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge. Our challenge is BINGO.   I am still stuck on the paper bag type cards, so this is what I did.

You can see there is a pocket at the top and in the middle where I put a little Magnolia tag.  Now here is what the inside panel looks like:

So to make this card just fold the bottom of the paper bag naturally and then cut off to the height that you want.  Below you see the dotted white line where I cut mine.  Keep that top portion because I will show you something else to do with that in another post.

 Now decorate to your hearts content.  I did glue up some of the folds for the top pocket just to streamline it a little bit, but you can keep it so that it expands if you want to put something more bulky inside.

Card Ingredients:

Stamps:  Magnolia - Tilda Holding Easter Basket, Tilda and her Bunny, and Wheelbarrow
Inks:  Distress Inks
Paper:  MME 
Tools:  MS Frond Punch, Magnolia Doily Tag and Antique Lace dies

A little bit of news..........I am so super thrilled!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Magnolia Ink Magazine made me "Blogger of the Month" in their issue this month! Wow! I am so honored.  Little ole' me, how about that?!  I tell ya I was shocked.  Thank you so much Magnolia Sweden for the wonderful goodies that you sent me, I got them on Saturday.
