Flora Grande Mini Purse - CR84FN22


It's time for another wonderful color challenge at the CR84FN, this month we have Silke joining us as our Guest Designer.  This weeks colors are Kraft, Green and Brown, such a lovely color combination.  I had a few things in mind for this weeks challenge, when I saw this cute Mini Purse Template, I knew it would be perfect with the new Paisley Petals DSP my friend Marjie sent me.

The template was printed on Chocolate card stock and assembled per the directions.  I did use a Spellbinder Circle Die for the flap, to help ensure a nice cut. (The die was also used on the 1/2 circles)  To create the blossom, stamp the smallest flowers from Heartfelt Creations Floral Grande 1 and 2 in Chocolate on Confetti card stock, cut with Spellbinders Blossom 3 Die, sponge edges. Add Corduroy button, adhere to purse with dimensionals.  I added some Faux Stitching using the Drywall Stitching Technique.

Here's this weeks color inspiration, we'd love for you to play along with us at CR84FN, you can find all the details here on how to enter. If you upload to any online gallery please use keyword CR84FN22 so we can find your creations!
