Card Purse and 5 Card Set

The purse is from the genius mind of Becky Roberts.  How I wish I created it!  It's just so......... perfect!
You can purchase her tutorial for her Purse-onally Perfect Notes on her blog found HERE.

I admit that I have quite a few SU stamp sets that I seem to very rarely use.  I thought today was the perfect opportunity to use some of those sets and some Sweet Pea DP as well.  I kept the cards fairly simple and mostly bulk-free, so I could comfortably fit 5 cards plus 5 envelopes inside the purse.

Supplies used (all SU unless otherwise noted):
Paper:  Sweet Pea DP; Sahara Sand CS, Black and White Daisy CS (CTMH)
Stamps:  Baroque Motifs, Close As A Memory, Spring Solitude, Artfully Asian, Warmest Regards
Inks:  Black, Grey Flannel, Ocean and Ocean Marker (CTMH)
Embellishments:  Black/White microcheck ribbon (Walmart), White Flower brad (CTMH), Silver brads (CTMH), Filigree designer brad
Punches:  Apron Lace edge (Fiskars), 1 3/8" square (EK), 1 3/4" circle and 5/8" circle (EK), Boho Blossoms, 5 Petal Flower
Other:  Purse-onally Perfect Notes template (Becky Roberts), Lumiere acrylic paint, Velcro dot (other)
Tools:  Paint brush (other), Paper piercer (CTMH), Craft knife (other), Blender pen (CTMH)
Adhesive:  Tombo Mono Multi (LSS), 3D foam tape (dollar store), 1/8" and 1/4" Scor-Tape (LSS)

Holy first I wondered what in the heck you were up to know posting purses on your craft blog! Hah, I figured maybe you'd invested in a "Coach" bag like I did.
But no, it is paper....but very fine paper shaped like a purse! BEAUTIFUL and GORGEOUS as always Vicki!
