Nanny's birthday card

I had to get my Mother-in-law's birthday card done so I can get it in the mail in time for her birthday. I was mulling several ideas in my head when I remembered that I had this cute purse stamp by Just For Fun stamps. She is in a "Red Hat" group and loves her red and purple accessories. I decided she needed a cute little "purse" to go with that theme. I love how quick this card is, but still gives the "wow" factor. All I did was stamp it on patterned paper for the front and cut out. Next, I stamped the purse again on red cardstock twice, but one is upside down and butted up at the bottom to the first image. I cut this all out as one image. Then I run my bone folder along the seam where the two images meet. I fold this and you have a cute purse that opens at the top where the handles are. I next stamp the accessories on the inside which is also a stamp from Just For Fun stamps. I used two different verse stamps to creat the greeting. The "It's your day" stamp is from Vap Scrap stamps. The "happy birthday" stamp is unknown. The last step is to attach the fru-fru trim to the front of the card. Yippee! All done.
