My share for you today is a gift card.

Paper: Tempting Turquoise, whisper white
Ink: Tempting Turquoise, yellow marker
Stamps: Happy Moments
Wheel: Birthday Candles
White envelope

Tempting Turquoise cut at: 3 1/4 x 4 1/2
Whisper white cut at: 3 x 4 1/4
Ink wheel with tempting turquoise ink and wheel on top and bottom of white cardstock. Stamp cake. Color as desired. Attach the white to the turquoise and attach to one side of envelope. Stamp inside greeting.

I cut one side of the envelope flap off and sealed the other side. I stamped Happy Birthday and left room to write a note and sign it. The left side will hold a gift card or a check.

This is the view from the back.

Hope you enjoyed my gift card. If you have any questions please feel free to ask.

Photo Purse

My share for you today is a Photo Purse. I saw this on Stampin Connection.

12x12 Melon Mambo cardstock ( scored in 4 inch sections)
DSP paper ( cut into 4 inch squares)
Winter White cardstock ( 4x4) (scored at 1 1/2 and 1 3/4)
Ribbon ( 9 1/2 inches), Velcro spot, eyelets(2)
Stamps: Vintage Vogue
Ink: Melon Mambo
Scallop circle punch and  crop-a-dile

First picture shows how the scoring is done and with the first piece of DSP paper in the middle. 
The corner squares are scored from the outer edge to the inner edge.
The 2 middle edges are scored from the middle of the square to the bottom edge of the square.

 This photo shows all DSP  in place.

This is the topper. 4x4 inch square of white cardstock. Score at 1 1/2 and at 1 3/4 inches. Use crop-a-dile to punch holes for ribbon handle. Add eyelets. Cut ribbon at an angle to make it easier to go in the eyelets. Tie knots underneath.
Stamp front edge as desired. Tape short edge to back of the purse.Add velcro dot underneath the front edge and then place on front where desired.

This photo shows a finished purse in Rich Razzleberry. I punched the flower out with the scallop circle punch.

 Thanks for visiting my blog today. I hope you enjoyed your time here. Come back to visit often.
