I made the card (details here) a couple of weeks ago for an Inspiration Challenge. The Bag-a-Lope is one of my favourite ways of making a small gift bag, and I made it to go with both the card and the knitted gift.
Instructions as per tutorial. I stamped the lower part with Cover-a-Card Bubbles and Brilliance Peacock. The upper part is CAC Greenery in Mowed Lawn, and I used a piece of white cut with MFT's Faux Crochet to cover the dividing line.
Pram is an old Provcraft stamp stamped in black, layered on black and then on a Lacy Squares cut from white. Punched white circles reinforce the punched holes for closing it, and the tie is a twisted cord made with the same cotton I used to knit a little jacket and hat.
The recipient loved this, and must have gone out and bought a thank-you card because DH arrived home with one the same day he presented the gift :D.
