Three Purses Card

Here is a fun card I made for my stampers to do if they wish. I don't remember where I saw this layout. The one I saw was in blues. It was very pretty but I didn't have the blues that they used so I thought I would go with the black and white look. It's a fun look and I usually don't do black and white so it was a bit of a challenge for me too.

I used several punches here to make the purses, including the handles, flowers and closures. Brads were added to the front of each purse and on one of them I used the white gel pen to add a few dots.

The base of the card is Basic Black. The next layer is the "Night & Day" decorative paper. I had some left and thought I would use it up. I didn't succeed, I still have some left! On top of that is three layers. A black layer, a gray layer and a white layer. The white layer was embossed using the Dotted Swiss embossing folder. A ribbon was tied around the three layers before they were taped in place with Dimensionals.

The words are from the Stampin' Up! "Oval All" set. It's an adorable set but I don't use it as often as I'd like to. The original card used that set and I did to because it fit nicely in that space. If you know how make the original "Three Purses" card please let me know so I can give them credit.

Isn't it a cute card. I just loved the original one and this one in black and white did turn out cute too. It sure does have a LOT of pieces to it though! But SO worth it!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
