    Purse (card holder) with Matching Cards

    My project consists of a purse that serves as a card holder and two matching cards.  I made 4 of these for my co-workers at Christmas time, and filled them with cards I had made.  It was a hit!!  I need to give credit to Tami White for the purse project.  It has been so fun for me to make these over and over with different DSP and endless color combinations.
    Items used for my project:
    -PAPER:  'Everyday Enchantment' DSP          
                     'Pool Party' cardstock
                     'Lucky Limeade' cardstock
                     'Very Vanilla' cardstock
    -INK:  poppy parade, soft suede, lucky limeade
    -PUNCHES:  Decorative label punch, 1" square punch, pinking hearts border punch
    -STAMP SET: Elementary Elegance
    -ACCESSORIES:  'Everyday Enchantment' Ribbon and Brad Pack, pleated satin ribbon  (poppy
                                    parade), pearls basic jewels
