Clutch Purse w/ Set of Note Cards

Hi everyone! I’m back with another post on this fine April Fool’s Day. The April House of Cards challenge is live this morning and I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for Feathers and/or Colors! How’s this for an inspiration photo… gorgeous, or what?! :)


I created a little clutch purse with a set of four note cards. I can’t tell you how much fun this was! My inspiration came from a YouTube video HERE. Pre-made 5″ x 3-1/2″ card bases and envelopes, slightly smaller than the standard A2 size, were used in the video. I always put my own spin on projects that inspire me. I cut my own card bases and made the envelopes with my Envelope Punch Board. I put glitter cardstock ‘trim’ on the flap which matches the strip on the cards.


The double-sided paper, cardstock and ink are all from Stampin’ Up! I created a stamped and punched flower for the front, and tucked a piece of cheesecloth (dyed with diluted Color Wash to match the paper and cardstock) behind the flower. I put the magnets for the closure between the flap layers so they aren’t seen.


The clutch opens up to reveal a set of four feathered note cards with envelopes. Love, love, love!


This is a close-up of one of the note cards which are blank on the inside. I embellished the fronts with four tiny clear rhinestones and a strip of glitter cardstock that matches the paper and cardstock.

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
