A Good Card Workshop

Well I had my second card workshop today, the ladies enjoyed themselves and are coming back next month.... so couldn't have been too bad!

The weather here is awful, we have torrential rain (although I would prefer snow), and it is grey and wet and very cold... bah!!!

But I still have something to show you. I made this yesterday afternoon after seeing a tutorial for it on SplitCoastStampers and is shown by Yvonne Hagane... thank you very much for this Yvonne....

This little faux leather purse is made completely out of cardstock, Close To Cocoa Cardstock to be precise, it was embossed using a cuttlebug embossing folder, inked using Close to Cocoa Ink and then embossed using Stampin' Up! Clear Embossing Powder. I stitched around the outside, added a fancy brad to look like a catch and stuck small magnets to it would stay closed, and stuck some ribbon all around both sides and used a retired Hodgepodge Hardware buckle for each piece of ribbon... voila... how good does this look, an excellent way of giving money or a gift card as a gift....

Keep your eyes peeled, will be back tomorrow as I have tons to make... take care and stay safe all xx
