Card Purse & Cards by Jodi

Hi everyone!!! Happy Tuesday!!

I have a fun and easy project to share with you today! Perhaps you saw my Card Purse Tutorial on SplitcoastStampers (grin!)? I knew I wanted to create a Card Purse and matching cards using the newly released Celebrate Life set from Taylored Expressions!!!

ALL the cardstock, patterned paper, ribbon, rhinestones
and skeleton leaves are from the November Key Ingredients, which I just cannot stop using!!)

For my focal panels, I began by cutting Choice Snow White Cardstock (which is part of the November Key Ingredients) with Classic Oval Nestabilities. I embossed them as well.

Keeping the cardstock in the Classic Oval Nestabilities, I stamped the GORGEOUS silhouette flower in Memento Rose Bud. For the focal panel of the card purse, I used the "Celebrate Life" sentiment in Memento Rich Cocoa.

For the cards, I kept just the flower image in the focal ovals. While continuing the keep the cardstock in the Classic Oval Nestabilities, I sponged Memento Rose Bud around the edge of each one.

The cards are SUPER simple...I find myself really enjoying the "clean and simple" look lately!! I used the Choice Snow White Cardstock as my card base and after adhering my strip of patterned paper (Indian Summer by Basic Grey), I used my Scor-Pal to create some score lines. I finished off each card with two Kaiser Rhinestones in Wine!

I hope you enjoy my set and make one for yourself! It's really easy and fun to make!!

Thanks SO much for stopping by!!
