One Stamp Set, Two Projects: Birthday card and Cotton Bag

Two more completely different projects using one main stamp set.  The first, a birthday card and the second, a cotton shopping bag.
For the card, cut a piece of burgundy card to 5.75” x 5.75”. Stamp the second largest Mixed Impressions Trees/Nature stamp onto it in Versamark ink. Pounce green patina mica powder over the top using a soft brush. When dry, buff off with a paper towel.
Stamp Happy Birthday from the Entwined Sentiment stamp set over the top in Versamark ink and heat emboss with detail gold embossing powder.
Add the individual leaf above the sentiment in the same manner.
Stamping directly onto the front of a 6” x 6” black card blank, add the second smallest stamp from the same set around the edges in Versamark ink and heat emboss in gold.
To finish, add the topper to the front of the card.  I must admit that I wish that I had trimmed the topper back a little more to allow more of the gold embossing to show.
For the second project, I worked on a plain cotton shopping bag that I had in my stash.  Iron a cotton shopping bag to get out the worst of the creases. Slide a glass mat inside it. Stamp the smallest leaf stamp from the Mixed Impressions Trees/Nature stamp set three times in Sepia Versafine ink.
Add three further leaves in Olympia Green Versafine ink.
Repeat using Toffee Versafine ink.
Add three more of the leaves in Spanish Moss Versafine ink.
Add a couple more leaves in Sepia and Spanish Moss.
Add the main Butterfly Tree stamp in Onyx Black Versafine ink at the bottom of the bag.
Add the three separate butterflies in the same ink. Iron the bag using a hot, dry setting, covering the ink with a paper towel.
To finish, add embroidery to some of the leaves.
