Christmas Gift Bag - Katzelkraft Stamps

Hi everyone! I have a Katzelkraft project to share today with a new Christmas stamp set 'St. Nicolas'. I've used the snowman, the holly and the greeting from the set and coloured the image with markers then stamped around it with the holly in brown ink. I also stamped the holly onto the kraft gift bag before attaching the gingham paper. This is my first decorated gift bag for this year, hopefully it won't be the last one I make before Christmas :) and I've used a Spellbinders die for that gorgeous star in the background, a pretty poinsettia flower (no idea where from!), seam binding, gems and pearl pen to decorate.

I'm entering my gift bag into the Stamptacular Sunday challenge where this week the theme is 'You Choose' and Totally Gorjuss Challenge with a theme of 'Bingo' and I've chosen the right hand vertical line of bow, pearls, bling

Katzelkraft stamps are available at the Craft Barn in the UK and direct from France. Hope you're having a lovely evening.

Beautiful gift bag, Chris! Love this vintage look. Gosh there's so much detail on this bag with the stamping on the bag, the pearls, the die-cuts, and your detailed, beautiful coloring of this snowman. I would keep it for myself LOL!
