Jodi Collins is today’s guest tutorial writer and she is showing us how to create a Card Purse for regular size cards. For my version I used the November Store kit from Unity. I LOVE this kit. Just look at this gorgeous stamp!
I stamped the fairy girl in Espresso Adirondack ink on Vanilla cardstock, cut it out with Label 2 Nestabilities, left the die on and sponged it first with Scattered Straw Distressed ink, then just a bit with Vintage Photo Distress ink. It was layered on a Chocolate chip cardstock piece that had been cut with the next size up label and sponged with Espresso ink. That had May Arts Organdy Ribbon tied around it.
The entire fairy was covered in Crystal Effect, the dandelion in Stardust stickles. The sentiment is also from Believe in Fairytales. it was stamped in Espresso ink on Vanilla cardstock, cut with large oval punch, sponged with Scattered Straw and Vintage Photo and layered on a Chocolate Scallop Oval punchout. I stamped the dandelion part of the image in Scattered Straw over the sentiment and added Stardust stickles to the dandelion. Three Tiny Twinkles finish off the sentiment layer.
A 4″ x 4 1/2″ piece of Laundry Line My Mind’s Eye paper was embossed with the Victoria Cuttlebug folder and sponged with Vintage Photo ink. It was stitched to a 3/16″ bigger piece of Very Vanilla cardstock that had been sponged with Vintage Photo ink. The main image was attached to the card box with dimensionals.
To finish it off I added Large Kaiser Rhinestones on top of 1/2″ Chocolate Chip circles that were sponged with Espresso ink. The ribbon handles were made of out Gold Satin Ribbon from May Arts. They were attached to the box with Scor-Tape.
