My mom asked me to make a card for her best friend, so this challenge worked out very well for the purpose. I made the inside another pocket to hold a gift card.
I used Say Charge stamp set from My Favorite Things. Cutie Pie DSP was perfect for this due to all the colors and patterns to work with. I incorporated the DSP into the main image by placing some on the shopping bags. The dresses also coordinate with the DSP.
The outer pocket dimensions are: piece of Cutie Pie DSP 3-3/8″ x 6-3/4″ scored at 3-7/8″ and the shorter side will be the front. You need to cut the shorter side at an angle (I just placed a ruler from the right corner to a desired spot, draw a line, and cut. Placed a strip of So Saffron CS 1/2 thick with dry embossed circles and Blue rhinestone brads to the ends. Sponged Purely Pomegranate ink to all the egdes. The sentiment — I omitted the “Good” from the stamp and just stamped “Friends are Priceless” so it would fit. I stamped the purse in So Saffron ink & the sentiment in Basic Black ink on Shimmery White CS. Punched out with 1-1/4″ Circle Punch. Punched a Certainly Celery circle using a 1-3/8″ Circle Punch. Scallop Punch to a piece of Cutie Pie DSP (blue with white flowers pattern), punched holes in each scallop using a 1/16″ Circle Punch. Attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The main image pocket dimensionas are: piece of Certainly Celery CS 2-3/4″ x 6-3/8″ scored at 2-7/8″. The main image is a piece of Shimmery White CS 2-1/2″ x 2-5/8″. Stamped image with Stazon Jet Black ink and watercolored with an Aqua-Painter. Stamped “Time to Shop” on a piece of Shimmery White CS, punched out with Word Window Punch, punched a 1/16″ hole for Linen Thread. The top of the image pocket has a piece of Bashful Blue CS punched with 1-1/4″ Circle Punch and folded over the top. Attached ribbon (certainly celery and white stripes) from District Ribbon Originals and the Linen Thread from the tag with a stapler.
