Purse-onally, I think you're the best!

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

Another easy peasy card!

For the background, I stamped the Creative Expressions Wrought Iron Corner Stamp in the top right-hand corner of a piece of Milk Card using Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. I then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations My Garden Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Victorian Velvet.

I stamped the Rose Blossom Purse using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Stately Circles and inked through the die with Victorian Velvet. I coloured in the roses with a mix of Rose Hue Mica Powder from the Cosmic Shimmer Circus Brights Mica Spray Set and Pearlescent Mica Powder from the Cosmic Shimmer Metallics Mica Spray Set. I coloured in the leaves using Summer Green Mica Powder from the Crcus Brights Mica Spray Set.

I stamped the sentiment that comes with the Rose Blossom Purse using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Fancy Postage Edge and inked through the die with Victorian Velvet.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Cream Pearls to the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pastel PVA in Pastel Pink around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

  7. Morning all Wattsonettes and a good morning Julia.
    Another lovely card, my favourite kind, very few colour's but co-ordinated beautifully. I love that folder, such a shame the company dont do them in a size for those of us that arn't lucky enough to own a die cutting machine to take A4 folders, I feel we are really missing out. Cant you suggest it Julia please ? After all, we are all loyal customers to these brands and would prefer to use them rather than look elsewhere if Im honest.
    Oh well, that's my plea over, so I'll wish you all a lovely and hopefully a stress free day.

    1. None of the Couture Creations folders are A4. They'll all fit in a Cuttlebug and Big Shot. Julia.

  11. Morning Julia, I love this card, quite simple but so effective. I love the purse, and the sentiment is brilliant, made me chuckle. The purse reminds me of a 'Butler & Wilson' clutch purse I saw once, beautifully vintage and gorgeously colourful, I love it.
