I have had a cuople of busy days so no time for making a card (boo-hoo!!) so today I am sharing one that I made back in october. I made this card for the little girl I used to be a nanny for ( scarily, she is not that little anymore!!! ) and she loves to shop!! perfect for a handbag cards thinks me and gets out the tbbm cart. Then I decided I wanted it a little bit more personal so I made a cardbase in ds with the name welded down the side. I used double sided patterned cardstock ( this is my one big cheat!!! i am awful with the colour matching thang and this cardstock is my lifesaver....urgh, what happens when i run out of it?!!!.... panick sets in!!!)
I cut the bag, card mats, letters and inside mats for the card all on the same piece of cardstock, i just flipped the image on the parts that I wanted to be the plain coour and cut it all in one go.
I stck the letters onto the base, added a few white gel pen dots and glazed over the top to make them shiny.I ran the top mat for the card through my cuttlebug with the happy birthday embossing folder.
For the bag handle I just threaded some black seed beads onto a piece of wire,shaped it into the handle shape and popped it through the holes in the top of the bag where I would normally put ribbon. I popped a little pearl on the closure with a tiny reposistionable glue dot on the inside, I did that because I gave her money for her birthday and put it in the little bag!!!!
On an off cards topic, my new bind-it-all pink version from my gorgeous husband arrived yesterday!!! whoop, whoop!!!! ....as always with new things...I got it out the box and then put it away in fear!!!!! lol!!! I do this everytime I get something new!!!!!! but watch this space,I will pluck up the courage to use it soon!!!!!!
