Ginger Blossom Purse Card

This was the swap I made for this past weekend's Demo meeting at Linda's. I had so much fun making this one. It's it cute? It's a purse made from punches!!

I will be sad to see the Ginger Blossom DSP retire, but I thought I might as well start using up what I have left...which is a

I used the 1 3/8" and 1 1/4" Square Punches to make the bottom of the purse. Then the 1 3/8" and 1 1/4" Circle Punches, folded in half to make the top. I finished it with a Fire Square Rhinestone brad and the River Rock Double-Stitched ribbon handle. Here is a close-up...

Couldn't you see this as a Bridal Shower invitation? Or as a Purse Party invite? So many possibilities...

Stamp Sets: Warm Words
Card Stock: River Rock, Ruby Red, Very Vanilla, Ginger Blossom DSP
Inks: Purely Pomegrante pad
Accessories: 1 3/8" Square Punch, 1 1/4" Square Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, 1 1/4" Circle Punch, 1/16" Circle Punch, Fire Square Rhinestone brad, River Rock Double-Stitched ribbon, Dimentionals

Well, I ended up winning first place in the Swap contest! Yea! Here are the goodies I won....

Shelly Whelen made them all. Aren't they cute? It's 2 file folders cover with Bali Breeze DSP, a Notepad covered with Bali Breeze DSP, and a clip wrapped in Flowers For You DSP.

The "Celebrate" on the Notepad is stamped directly onto the 5/8" grosgrain Old Olive ribbon! You can do this by either using Craft or Stazon ink.

I was so excited I won! Thanks, Shelly for the awesome prizes!

Have a fabulous day! Bubble Bath
