Purse Card


My friend from Canada, Marita, just loves purses which inspired me to create a purse card for her on her recent birthday.

The patterned paper is from the DCWV Lemon Flower stack. I used felt paper, lace and ribbon for the trimmings. The flourish is from the Silhouette store, I cut 2 pieces and stacked them together for my favorite faux chipboard technique. BTW, I did an offset of the flourish as the design was too fine for the size I wanted. The bottom layer of the sentiment is a tag from the Silhouette store which I tweaked to get rid of the tip at the bottom. The heart shaped clasp is from my trinket collection. I used a magnetic snap for the closure.

From the Silhouette Online Store:

1) Flourish: House of 3 Swirly Flourish By House of 3
2) Tag: Label Frame Tag By Samantha Walker

I created an alternative sentiment, 'Made Just For You', which is included in the free card file.

I'm sharing all the layers of the card except for the flourish and the bottom layer of the sentiment. Please note that I only share my files with my blog followers. Just post a comment to request for the free card file. Please do not forget to leave your e-mail address on your comment.

Happy crafting!

  1. I would love to give this a try but I do know it will not come out anything as good as yours (I am more inclined to get glue everywhere but where I want it LOL) Many thanks in advance.

    1. I'm sure you'll be able to recreate this card without any trouble at all. I actually hate glue and I'll find every way to avoid using it. You'll find it weird that for a hardcore crafter like me, I don't even own a glue gun, not after I burned my finger tip :(. What works best for me is the double sided tape which I use in almost everything, most especially in layering. For very fine designs like swirls and flourishes, I use the Krylon repositionable adhesive spray. I can guarantee you no mess with the double sided tape and the adhesive spray.

    2. where can i buy that Krylon repositionable adhesive spray here in the philippines. I already tried going Acehardware, national bookstore, deovir, meriam bookstore, home depot,. please help

      Delete
    3. Adhesive spray is available at the Ace Hardware and True Value stores. I also found it at the National Bookstore. If you can't it at the branches in your area, send me an e-mail. I can get it for you here.
