Merry Christmas from me to you!
Spring Stamp Camp!

Embossed cards and purse tote

Christmas is now over, and I can share this project with you.  This was our Christmas gift to my Stepmother, Corlene.  I am not giving away any Christmas secrets by sharing it with you now!

I wanted to create 6 simple, yet elegant cards for Corlene.  There is nothing simpler than using the Big Shot and the various embossing folders by Stampin' Up!  They add such a great texture to any project, and I knew Corlene would like the look and the feel of these cards. I also made it easy on myself by using only the six In Colors card stock, ink and polka dot ribbon: Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry, Dusty Durango, Bermuda Bay and Soft Suede.

Thanks to Patty Bennett at PattyStamps for her great tutorial on the purse tote. The timing was perfect as I was looking for a pattern I could use to hold these 6 cards and envelopes.  Here is the finished purse tote.

It's hard to tell from the photo, but the front and back of the tote are textured also.  I used the Damask Texturz Plate and the Big Shot.

Happy Stampin'!
