Top Note Paisley Purse

Here is another card we did at my All Occasion Card Class over the weekend. I had seen the idea to make a cute purse using the Top Note die on my SBS sister Cindy's blog - Stamps, Paper & Ink, and thought it was the cutest thing! Since I'm addicted to my Big Shot (and the Top Note die!) I knew I needed to try this.

The only stamping was on the Chocolate Chip layers using White Craft ink & the Paisley background stamp. All pieces were cut out using the Big shot: Large Scallop (Bigz), Birds & Blooms (Sizzlets) and of course the Top Note die. The large circle was cut using my Coluzzle. The scallop was cut out of Pretty in Pink card stock & the large flower is Pink Pirouette. It was finished with a pink brad and 5/8" Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon for the handle.

Wouldn't this be perfect to hold a gift card? Thanks for the wonderful inspiration Cindy!

Thanks for stopping by...have a creative day!
