Shine~Card & Mini Purse Gift Set!!

Happy Fri.!!

Hi~ya All!!!

WOW!! It has been a hot week here. We hit triple digits 3 days in a row. Nothing better for me to do than stay inside and keep cool!! While I was here, I decided to make this cute little purse. I had seen a similar one on an SU website. I said, humm..., I can create this with my Cricut and DS. I made the template for the inside using my UCCB. Using my Cricut with DS, and AE, cartridge, I cut out the sides. Then I used my nesties for the top closure. I was so pleased with the outcome, I decided to make a shaped card to match. This card has three layers of designer card stock, Bazzill and DCWV on top of the base. I embossed the dark blue with my new CB embossing folders, sorry I don't remember the name. I ordered them, and they came as a bundle, so I haven't had time to check them out. CC for the sentiment which was cut twice. I used lots of SU dimensionals for the 3-D effect, along with their punches. Added a nestie label die under the sentiment, some gems, ribbon, and inking. Very simple gift set! If I forgot anything, you can e-mail me for more info. I am considering creating this set for my new workshop, to be starting soon. I have been awake for 20 hours now, and my memorex is slowing winding down. I should have waited until mid morning to write this, but I knew I would get busy and not have time to post. That's all for now, going to get a few hours of sleep. Your comments are always welcomed! Have a great weekend!
