Handbag shaped card

Hi Bloggers.

I'm off to Peterborough early tomorrow to do Create & Craft Shows at 11am with Lottie and 5pm with Dean.

I couldn't resist sharing this diddy little shaped card made with the Creative Expressions Mechanical Handbags stamp set. Such a cute little card for a note or a little invite.

I folded a piece of A5 white card in half and then stamped the handbag just over the fold so the very left-hand side of it was missing. I stamped using Plum Archival and embossed using Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut out the handbag through both pieces of card with scissors and a craft knife.

I coloured the image in with Dusky Pink and Dark Cherry mica powders from the Cosmic Shimmer Dark Dusks Mica Spray Set.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set on a separate piece of card again using the Plum Archival and embossed with the clear powder. I cut it out and edged it with a fine liner.

Hope you like this little offering. Sorry for the poor quality of the photos on this - the sun was shining into my craft room when they were taken.

Thanks for stopping by.



  1. This is a brilliant card bag/bag card - looking at the photo from the front it looks so like a real bag that I had to double take to realise it was a car.- Certainly tempts me to get the stamps.
