A Purse Shaped Card with Cheery Lynn Designs

Happy Monday crafty friends! It's my day to host the blog over at Cheery Lynn Designs today.

Over the weekend we had some out of town friends come to visit. It was pretty fun to see their little girls play and how much they enjoy their purses and dolls, etc.

I recently received the circle scalloped stacker dies and remembered this very cute idea that Jodi had shared a while back here on one of her amazing pages.

Do you see that cute little blue purse?  

I thought it might be fun to try and create a shaped purse card.

I started with the largest Scalloped Circle Stacker, then layered it with a plain Circle Stacker. I trimmed the bottom flat. Next, I added the Lattice Valance Border and trimmed it to fit. I cut a few quills and tucked them in as well as a bit of the ivy corner flourish.

Here I've used the Cuties 1, 3 and 4 and some ivy strip leaves.

The lace corner deco d seemed like a nice clasp for the top.

To attach the pieces, I just used some washi tape.  I could have also stitched it, but it wouldn't have opened up so nice and flat. This was really a fun project to do! The stackers made it super easy to layer and get such a pretty look!
