HANDBAGS BIRTHDAY CARD


Good evening

My friends daughter will be 17 tomorrow, she loves Audrey Hepburn, Cary Grant and all the films from that era. I made this card hoping it gives an impression of a chic handbag shop from that era!

I used my Cricut as you will see I do for most of my cards now. A white 6x6 card. I cut a base of black bags using Mickey and Friends Daisys bag in border function at 21/2" then cut another 3 copies using patterned card which was printed from my Pink Petticoat CD Daisy Daisy paper collection. I cut one bag from each of the patterned papers and trimmed off the handle and layered on top of black base of bags. Pop dotted onto the card The scallop edge is printed on card from the same Cd and the cut is from Plantin School at 1" The black strip across the bottom of the card is self adhesive velvet paper (feels lovely!). Lots of red gems and a red flower sequin from my stash. Text is computer generated Gigi font. Thanks for lookin I hope she likes it!
