I needed to start using my scraps - the heap was becoming overwhelming. I was not helping either, instead of searching through it, I would just cut another piece. Today, I made a card set and a mini purse ENTIRELY from my scrap pile. I have a template, so you can make the purse, as well.
All of these cards were made with white card fronts measuring 5.5 X 4.25. I folded them in half to measure 2.75 X 4.25. I added a 2 X 4.25 inch strip of DP and then a .5 X 4.25 inch strip of contrasting CS. This piece was embossed with the crop-a-dile, using this TUTORIAL.
I used one of the new Sale-A-Bration sets, So Many Scallops, for each of the cards. The only difference is on the two Christmas ones, I used a 3D white shimmer fabric paint for my mini pearls in the scallops. I think it is so pretty, and I got it from Michaels. It is probably the same thing as Liquid Pearls (available from All That Scraps).
Here is the template for you in this new size.
Your CS for the purse needs to be 7 X 8. Along the 8 inch side you will score at 3 and 5. On the 7 inch side, you will score 1 1/4 inches in ON EACH SIDE. Cut on the solid lines, up to the score marks and then, to put it together. I added some 5/8 olive grosgrain, and the accent pieces in regal rose. I faux stitched them all, adding some olive brads, just like hardware on a real purse. If I get enough questions, I can also post pictures of how to put the purse together. Have fun and happy stamping!!
