Purse card


Here is a purse card I made, it is a regular card that opens from the bottom. This card is cased from someone else, but I'm sorry I can't remember where I saw it :( But I thought this idea was wonderful and oh so easy! All you need is a circle Coluzzle and cut a half circle from light purple paper using the outer most line to cut on then do the same with decorative paper using one line smaller. I attached the ribbon to the top using little white brads and added a little Fabri-tac glue to make sure the ribbon wouldn't pull out. The Flowers are from Hero Arts, they are layered and a purple brad holds them together, then I glued the half circles to the top of the card. Then I cut a strip of decorative paper, layered it onto slightly larger light purple paper and wrapped it with lime ribbon and a little ribbon frame/buckle. Glue this down then stamp your sentiment.
I think I will use this style of card for my daughters birthday invitations, but make it a little more funky since she is having a "hippie" theme. I'll post it when I get it done.
Hope you all enjoy your weekend :)
