Flower handbag card

My new colour products have arrived and they are simply gorgeous. I haven't had chance to make anything with them yet - apart from a little something for those who are coming to my brayer class this Saturday - but I'll photograph the products as soon as I am around in daylight. You'll definitely be wanting my new product bundles when you see how fantastic they are!

Back to today's project...

At my Mini Catalogue launch, I demonstrated how to make this paper flower – I’ve explained on here before, click here for details.

This card is an old favourite – in fact, I found the card base at the bottom of my Soft Subtles scraps box and thought I’d use it before it’s too late. Yes, Barely Banana – and Lavender Lace – are both on the retiring list so if you love it, get it while you still can.

Oh, the card – to make this shape of card, simply fold a piece of A5 cardstock in half as normal, then measure 1” in from each end along the crease and mark with a dot. Cut from the dot, diagonally down to the corner where the card opens, then repeat on the other side. I made a couple of holes with the Crop-A-Dile™ to thread the ribbon through, which is simply knotted on the inside. It’s quite bulky so probably one for hand-delivering unless you have a padded envelope and are willing to pay the extra postage.

Stamps: Bird on a Branch
Cardstock: Barely Banana, Lavender Lace, Whisper White
Ink: Lavender Lace
Accessories: Scallop Circle Punch, Striped Grosgrain Ribbon – So Saffron, Scallop Edge Punch
