Let me start by saying…I LOVE handbags!!!For the inspiration challenge today, I chose this purse. And here’s my recipe:
The cardbase is a standard A2 made with Stampin’ Up Basic Black cardstock. The ivory layer is a piece of SU Very Vanilla that’s been stamped with the Bliss stamp in Encore Gold and then overstamped in Soft Suede. Then run it through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice embossing folder to create a fabric look. The crushed gold-look cardstock at the bottom of the card is an unknown piece from my stash – sorry! The black velvet ribbon is from SU (retired).
Now for the medallion. I stamped SU Kind Thoughts (retired) image on SU Very Vanilla and punched it out using the 1 3/4″ Scallop Circle XL punch. Then I used three different colors of Stickles (Dark Blue, Cinnamon and Distressed Antique Linen) and traced the pattern. A word of warning – it will take quite a while to dry as there’s a lot of heavy lines and depth to this. Then the medallion was layered onto a larger punched piece – the 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle XL punch.
Have a great weekend everyone!
Another challenge card from Splitcoast today. A pocket card.
This card will fit in a regular A2 envelope. I started with a piece of designer paper about 4.25″ wide x 12″ long. This paper is from Stampin’ Up! and it’s called Elegant Soiree. Then I pulled the Spellbinders Labels 20 die through it, up to one end and cut the first edge and then repeated this on the other end. The card was scored and then I used Score-Tape on the front flap and adhered it to the back. I then cut inside the inside pull-out card with the same die but only making it just under 4″ so that it fits inside the pocket.
I added a stamped frame from Waltzingmouse stamps (SU Baja Breeze) and layered a Labels 18 piece on top with dimensionals. This piece has been stamped with some flourishes from the Stampin’ Up! set – To Have and To Hold (now retired). I sponged some of SU’s Paper Daisies and Victoria Crochet trim with Soft Suede and then proceeded to add lots of pearls.
The little card in the pocket has an area to write your note to the recipient.
Have a wonderful day!
