Purse Card

Ok, I believe in giving credit where credit is due. I got this idea from the Summer 2014 issue of Card Maker Magazine. Of course, mine is different but the basics are the same.

Materials needed:
Wildflower Meadow stamp set (#129168)
Wildflower Meadow embossing folder (#129376)
Really Good Greetings stamp set (#130333)
Red card stock 5 1/2 x 9"
Light blue card stock 3 pieces  2 3/4 x 5 1/4" and 1 piece 1 1/4 x 5 1/4"
White card stock 3 pieces 2 1/2 x 5" and 1 piece 1 x 5"
Coordinating patterned paper 1 x 5"
Scallop edge border punch
Brights Button collection (#119747)
Washi tape from Wal Mart
Melon Mambo marker
Cherry Cobbler marker
Gumball Green marker
Melon Mambo ink pad
Score board

1. Use the scallop edge border punch to punch one of the 5" ends.
2. Place the red card stock with the long edge on the score board horizontally. Score at 3, 3 1/2, 4 and  7".
Accordion fold on the score lines.
3. Stamp  and emboss the 2 pieces of the white card stock. I used the Wildflower Meadow stamp and embossing folder. Adhere the white card stock onto 2 of the light blue card stock pieces. Adhere one piece to the front of the "purse" and the other to the top inside as shown in the picture. Stamp a greeting at the top of the inside piece.
4.  Adhere the last piece of white card stock on to the last blue piece. At the bottom of that piece, place a strip of Washi tape all the way across. You can write your special note here.
5. Adhere the small piece of patterned paper to the small piece of blue card stock. Adhere it to the flap of the purse. Adhere 3 small buttons to the center of the patterned paper.
