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.
Card 1:Dusty Durango and Petals A Plenty embossing folder
Card 2: Rich Razzleberry and Elegant Bouquet embossing folder
Card 3: Melon Mambo and Finial Press embossing folder
Card 4: Bermuda Bay and Manhattan Flower embossing folder
Card 5: Crushed Curry and Manhattan Flower embossing folder
Card 6: Soft Suede and Petals A Plenty embossing folder
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.
