Purse Die Fun

Morning all.

When the new SU catty came out September 1st this year one thing I was very eager to get was the Petite Purse Die. I have seen many beautiful things done with it, so I thought I may as well join in the fun and games.

My SIL was at the beginning of may 40th birthdays with family and work. It was only fitting that family bore the brunt of my 1st experimental purse!! I also broke out the new Summer Silhouettes stamp set too. This is my 1st attempt at a purse......



I embossed it with the Cuttlebug Wicker Weave EF.















And of course....it held 3 Ghirardelli chocolates just perfectly!!


The card was bases around pink like the purse (my SIL is VERY much a girly girl) and LOVES pink!!

 
The frame that holds the 40 is from the new Window Framelit Dies. I matted it out by cutting 2 pink ones, cutting them in half and then creating the border.
 
 
Here are the purse and card together......
 
 
 
Thanks for popping by. I have MANY more variations of purses to share. I have had lots of 40th birthdays and it seemed like a good way to start a celebration....every gal likes chocolate....right???
 
Next post starts the big challenge I was given....stay tuned.
