Faux stitching technique - take 2

Today is my second take on the faux stitching technique challenge and I have a gift bag to match yesterday's card.

Textured Cardstock: Rose Red, Whisper White
Ink: Rose Red, White Signo Gel Pen
Punches: 1-1/4" Circle, 1-3/4" Circle
Other: Paper Piercing Tool, Mat Pack, Sweet Pea (stitched felt)

For the bag I started with textured Rose Red cardstock 29cm x 13cm. I scored 3cm in from the long edge. Along the other edge I scored at 3cm, 13cm, 16cm and 26cm. With the cardstock in landscape mode and the scoreline at the bottom, I cut along each vertical scoreline from the base to the horizontal scoreline and trimmed away one of the outside squares completely. I punched a 1-1/4" Circle from the Rose Red textured cardstock then centring it in the 1-3/4" Circle punch, punched again. Two of these are needed for the handles of the bag. The front and back of the bag were punched halfway down in the centre with the 1-1/4" Circle punch. Next the front and back of the bag and the handles were faux stitched (scroll down to yesterday's post for details). The handles were attached using Tombow glue. An 8.5cm square of Whisper White textured cardstock was punched in the centre of one edge with the 1-3/4" Circle, to allow for the handle and then faux stitched with Rose Red. Sweet Pea stitched felt flowers were adhered with glue dots and the mat was popped up on dimensionals to the card front before making up the gift bag along the side and the base with sticky strip.

Here are the card and the bag side by side.
