The "Loved-it" purse template from SU makes a cute little purse, but when I tried to add 3" note cards to make a it a gift set, it was falling over. So I widened the bottom & scanned it for you to use. Here's the altered S.U. template:
It works with SU's 3" envelopes or there's this three inch envelope template to make your own.
The techniques this card set uses are:
1. Glue pen embossing
2. My version of Faux Suede (SO easy that it's like cheating.)
Both techniques combine to create 'Faux suede glue pen emboss resist' <--haha that's a mouthful.
Cardstock for the purse is Perfect Plum. The glue pen embossed section is done separately & adhered with double-sided tape. The handle is made with wire & dollar store seed beads. The eyelets keep it from tearing. There are also eyelets to keep the purse closed with ribbon. (I'll add a photo as soon as those blammed camera batteries are charged) ;0) The ribbon is hand-dyed (SU's white taffeta.)
Note Card Details
Perfect Plum cardstock stamped with Riot of Petals background stamp in Whisper White craft ink. Distress embossed with clear embossing powder (just over heat it until you see dark lines around, but avoid scorching.) Hand-dyed ribbon (SU's white taffeta.) Round faux suede "hi" is done with the same glue pen emboss resist and punched with a 1" circle punch.
