Create a Cupcake Purse Card

This "Create a Cupcake" set and the matching punch are both very fun!  I saw a card similar to this one somewhere on the Internet and now I don't remember.  So if you are the author or know who made a card that is very close to this one please let me know.  The original card did not have the bling on it.  And it did not have the black around the punched out part.  And it didn't have the red on the right edges.

I will share with you how I made this card.  I first did the scalloped piece and taped it in place.  Then I made the purse using one stamp from the "Create a Cupcake" set and punched it out.  Then I took a piece of black decorative paper and punched out a 3/4" circle and folded it in half.  The purse handle is made by using two different size oval punches.  I glued the circle in place over the top of the cupcake base (turned upside down).  Then I taped the handle in place behind the circle part. 

Next I punched a hole with a 1-3/4" circle punch.  And the black layer around the opening was done using a 2" circle punch.  I added a bit of bling to it using stick on rhinestones.  And you can see one on the purse and 5 on the red scalloped border strip.  I did take the Real Red marker and colored the right edges of the card.  To do that I opened up the card and set it on a piece of scrap paper.  I then took my marker and ran it across it.  I did it like I was using the edge of my card as a rule and the marker to make the line on the scrap paper.  It made the edge color just thick enough to see.  I did try just using the side of the marker on the edge of the card stock but it just wasn't a deep enough mark to see the color very well.  I did this for the other edge of the card as well.

I didn't add any words to the card because I wasn't sure what I was going to use it for.  But the words will go on the upper part of the front of the card.  I may use it for either a thank you card or for an upcoming birthday.

It's a very quick card to make too!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,

Very cute card, Wanda. I don't have all 3 of those circle punches but wish that I had. I like the idea of the red line on the edges. Thanks for the great ideas.
