Purse (gift packaging)

The focal point of the card features a flattened Soda Pop Top (yes, you can run them through the Big Shot). The images from the Collage Curios stamp set were stamped, punched out and glued into the Soda Pop Top with Crystal Effects. The whole image was covered with Crystal Effects to give it the resin effect.
The closure for the purse was made using one of the buttons from the Artisan Kit and a Dalia attached to the center.

Have you ever tried the Core’dination Papers? These papers give a different effect from the standard card stock. The outside layers are standard Stampin’ Up! colours and the inside layer is a monochromatic colour. When you distress or emboss this paper, the inside layer is revealed to give a different look.
Give these two products a try.
