The Wedding Table

I made this gift box and petite purse handbag for the wedding table, they could be made for so many different occasions, the Stampin' Up! Gift Box Punch Board makes 15 different sized boxes and the Petite Purse was made using the Petite Purse die from Stampin' Up!. It is a fabulous die as it cuts the purse out in one piece already scored so you only have to fold and stick. It is up to you how much you embellish it for the occasion, you only have to attach the handle with a couple of glue dots.


Products used for these items:
Cardstock: Whisper White
Gift Box Punch Board

DSP: Gold Soiree

Embellishment: Something Borrowed

Engagement Card

I was asked to make an engagement card for a friend so I decided to use one of my favorite card shapes "Pocket Card" to design the Engagement Card.  It worked out quite well and this type of card would be great for wedding or birthday invites without all the embellishing, you could make it quite basic and have the actual invitation in the pocket of the card.

Swallowtail Butterfly Card

I thought I'd try my new stamp out the "Swallowtail" this is a huge stamp and is fantastic to work with, it is my favorite stamp at the moment. I just love it.

This is a great stamp and as I have done it in Black and White would be great for a sympathy card or wedding card - just with a change of sentiment.

Birthday Card

I saw this tearing technique and just had to try it myself, you just start with the base card and tear from the top tearing slowly moving more to the left hand side until you reach the bottom of your card. Now set this aside. Then using your piece of Whisper White Card-stock stamp your flowers and leaves over the card-stock then when you are happy with the result just glue it under the torn side of the card. This then becomes the front of your card, I just think it has the WOW factor.



Products used in this card:
Cardstock: Elegant Eggplant and Whisper White
Stamp Sets: Choose Happiness and Label Love
Stamp Pads: Pear Pizzazz and Elegant Eggplant
Ribbon: 1/8" Silver
