Birthday Card & Purse Gift Card Holder

Vicki birthday

For a friend who likes to shop I made this card and purse using my Silhouette Cameo cutting machine and design files from the Silhouette Design Store.  I put a gift card in the purse.

On the front of the card I cut out the Happy Birthday sentiment from Silhouette double-sided adhesive sheets and then sprinkled it with green glitter.

The detailed instructions on Samantha Walker’s blog helped a lot with assembling the purse.  I cut all the pieces from one yellow 12 x 12 piece of paper.  I then figured out which pieces to cut from a coordinating paper.   I cut the buckles from Silhouette printable gold foil and used some brads I had on hand for embellishment.  Next time I will cut another pair of handles to cover up the back of the brads.
