CAS quick gift idea and card

Its my turn to do a feature on The digi Bells blog and since you're all running out of time for your festivities tomorrow and i'm sure that there was someone on your guest list that you fogot that you needed a little something for, i am showing you a very clean and simple card and gift bag for that forgotten guest.
The bag was made from a full sheet of Basil, 12" x 12" folded in three all the way around, then along the two outside measurements i gave the cardstock valley and mountain folds, added and extra piece of cardstock that i used an old fiskars punch on to give the flap of the bag a little detail and a few pearls.

The card i used an old stamp that i got from funky kits ages ago when i first fell in love with Elizabeth Bell images, she is the "Artist" colored with my copics, and the corners are from Marianne creatables, these are the new corners.  I cut them from the die, embossed them and then inked them to show the beautiful emboss detail.
Now i would like to wish all my followers and visitors a very merry Christmas, good times spent with special friends and family, MWAH!!!
