I'm sharing this purse card that I made for Tuesday Trigger from a few weeks ago. I didn't think it was good enough to post because the proportions were not quite right and the colors were off with the TT. But...I changed my mind and decided to share it after all. Maybe you can find a little bit of beauty in it. Yes?
I used the versatile SRM Stickers for the handles and added the pleats (which took me forever!). For the purse handles on this one, I glued two pieces of the diecuts in between the pleats and the top part of the purse. It was very straightforward to make.
Many of you requested to see see a tutorial...well, here it is! You start out with a piece of card stock, fold it in half and trim both sides and make sure they are symmertrical. My method is very primitive. So if I can make it you can too!
Here's how it looked...I used the corner punch to round up the bottom corners.
This is how I made the flap this time. I used a circle cutout and fold it over the top.
Then I poked two holes on top and strung the stiff rickrack through the holes. I stapled the card from the inside to keep the rickrack in place. I kept the straps simple this time. I also added the stamped butterfly, gems, buttons (for the finished look)...that's it! I hope you are not disappointed with the tutorial. Let me know if you have any more questions. I'll be happy to show you the ropes :)
I made this for Cathy as she gave me this girlfriend stamp a while ago. It's only fitting to make a card with that message as I will be seeing her for the 1st time soon! Here are the Canadian goodies that I will be bringing to Cathy -Canadian coffee, Canadian maple syrup, Canadian spice, a Canadian thermometer with the our national symbol the maple leaf, and a locally made spoon holder for her kitchen.
When you read this, I will be meeting Cathy in London today. Yes, today!
