With all the details out of the way, here's my project. I created a little gift bag and card combo for my husband's Step-Grandmother who's birthday is also this week. Sit back and relax because this post is photo heavy! I bought her this handmade goat's milk soap from a local farm. Can you see all that lavender seed goodness on the top!?
Here is the closeup of the tag. I recruited my oldest daughter to help with the flowers. She punched out all the layers and then I showed her how to crumble them up until the fibers break down and you can separate the card stock into two layers. It saved me a lot of time!! Unfortunately, the photo doesn't show all 8 lovely, crumpled layers, but it is bit an fluffy.
I used a small image from the same set to decorate the inside of the card, too:
