Step 1: Paint the gift bag using acrylic paint, let it dry!
Step 2: Stamp the main image onto cardstock and use distress inks to colour (I used Fired Brick and Peeled paint)

Step 6: Ink up the text stamp with Versamark and stamp randomly onto bag, heat emboss using silver embossing powder.
Step 7: Randomly stamp snowflake in white Brilliance ink.
Step 8: Adhere image to bag.
Step 9: Distress tissue strip with Vintage photo distress ink. Repeat stamp the greeting onto tissue paper and then tear edges, adhere across the bottom third of the bag.
