An Elegant Handbag Card

An elegant handbag card, I started with a pink base card a few score lines later I had a basic handbag shape. I then cut out the largest of the QuicKutz Cookie cutter Nesting Label and adhered it to the front of the card.
I used the Flourish Stamp from the Silent Night set by Papertrey Ink I used it with pink ink onto the white flap of the handbag and with white embossing powder onto the pink base card.
I used one of those special buttons I found in the knitting shop slotted a ribbon through the back of it then tied a bow at the back.
If I get enough interest in the handbag I will do a tutorial.


Attention to detail the flowers were white, I painted on the colour using the same pink ink that I had used to stamp the flourish with.
