The current ODBD Stamping in Time assignment is to make a scripture the focal point of your card. I'd made a set of gift cards (well, I ran out of time, so 3 came from my stash) and made this bag to present them in.
I used the Bagalope tutorial in Resources, but as it would have been too narrow to hold the 5 3/4" cards, instead of scoring along 2" lines I scored 1" from each side and the bottom of the envelope. Verse was stamped in black Versafine, then I stamped a frame with the evergreen spray from Sing for Joy, using markers. Sponged outside with Vintage Photo and then used the edge of the sponge to add texture. Sponged inside with Tumbled Glass. Added Frosted Lace Stickles to the pine cones. Along the top I fixed some scored green card and some scalloped red, with Liquid Pearls along the scallops. I used antique copper eyelets and some fancy ribbon for the handles. To finish I created a sort of robin (the traditional Christmas bird over here) with the 2-step bird punch.
