Hi, friends! Happy Monday – hope you had a wonderful weekend! I’m stoked to be back on the CutCardStock blog today with an awesome DT inspiration project featuring more of the Curious Metallic and Glitter cardstock that was included in our Designer’s Pack! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I created a glitzy and glamorous little handbag to hold birthday chocolates, jewelry or a gift card! OMG, how stinkin’ cute is this?!


I found this stamp and die set at one of my favorite online stores several months ago and could not wait to get my hands on it! I cut all the purse pieces from CCS Silver Glitter cardstock and Curious Metallic White-Silver cardstock. I also used Pop-Tone Wild Cherry cardstock for a pop of red on the charm and one of the tags, and then to tie in that pop of red I used a few red flat-back pearls. I stamped both tags in red ink (tone-on-tone stamping on the red tag) and then heat embossed the sentiment tag with clear embossing powder over top the red ink. I had a small ball chain in my stash that I used to hang the charm, tassel and tags off one of the straps.


Here’s a shot of the back…


And one more look… I love it so much I can’t stand it! And I can’t wait to make some more using different colors and patterns of cardstock. So fun!
