Flower Pots and Purses

Good morning,

Today I would like to share two cards that I created by using Tab Punch from Stampin' Up. Both cards measure 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".

On the "Celebrate" card I punched Cool Caribbean cardstock with the Tab Punch three times, stamped it with Canvas Background stamp to create the textured look, and folded in half. For the flaps, I punched three ovals with the Large Oval Punch and folded not quite in half (half was just a bit too long). Attached flap to the "purse" and used Gold Zig pen to add "stitching". Placed small Prima flower with the gold brad on the bottom of the flap. Then added gold cord for the handle.

For the "Thank you" card I used the same Tab Punch, but this time I punched Brushed Gold cardstock. I then ran it through my Cuttlebug to add texture. Stamped flower stamps, placed my "flower pots" over them on dimensionals. Attached Bazzil Flowers with glue dots and then placed buttons in the centers.

These cards are simple and were fast and easy to make, but they definitely have the "wow" effect. Enjoy!

:) Irina
