Today I have the tutorial for the card-holder purse and details of card set that I created for the Stampin' Addicts Winter Blog Hop. All of my projects featured alternatives ideas for the Holly Jolly Greetings Simply Sent Kit. Click back through the last few days of my blog posts to see the details of those project too!
The first card is pretty straight-forward.
For the second card, I inked just a portion of the words and stamped them to the side. The small images are stamped with Soft Sky, Real Red and So Saffron, punched out and popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.
The back of the purse has a place to write To/From.
1. Cut a card from the Holly Greetings Simply Sent Kit apart on the fold line.
2. Use an Exacto knife to cut two 3/4" slits on the crease of the card flap. Insert a length of Smoky Slate Chevron Ribbon and tie knots at each end. (See picture in Step 6.)
3. For the base, cut a 6-1/2" X 6-1/2" piece of Smoky Slate cardstock. Score 2-1/2" from two opposite sides.
7. Adhere the box to the purse back. Pinch the top of the box together, indent the side pieces and crease. This "trains" the sides to be indented when the purse is closed.

Note: If you happen to have the retired Scalloped Bag Big Shot die it will work perfectly for the side pieces. Cut each side piece down to 2-1/2" and use a 6-5/8" X 6-5/8" square in Step 3 for the base.
