Happy Saturday friend, how is your weekend going?
Can you believe Mother's Day will soon be here, the year is just flying by! Why not get ready early this year with this fun purse card tutorial. In fact, why not make two of these.... one for a card and another that co-cordinates without the handle to place a small gift in! We think these would be fabulous for weddings too full of confetti!

Let's begin and have some crafty fun!
Step 1 Cut a piece of white cardstock at 10" x 5 1/4" and score at 4 1/2" and 5 3/4" to create the base of the purse.
Step 2 Adhere the magnet to the front of the card as shown. Cut a piece of patterned paper at 5 2/16" and 4 2/16" and adhere it over the front of the purse.
Step 3 Cut two pieces of white cardstock at 4 1/4" x 4 1/2" and score every 3/4" along the 4 1/2" side to create the sides.
Step 4 Adhere these pieces to the sides of the purse as shown.
Step 5 Cut a piece of white cardstock 4 1/2" x 5 1/4" and score at 1 1/4" x 3 1/4" along the shorter edge to create the top. Using the edge die from the semi-circular medallion set die cut the edge of the top as shown.
Step 6 Cut two strips of patterned paper 6/16" x 5 2/16" and 3/4" x 5 2/16" and adhere at the top and front of the top. Die cut the edge and decorative dies out of white cardstock and adhere together before adhering to the front.
Step 7 Adhere top to the back of the purse.
Step 8 Cut two strips of patterned paper 3/8" x 12" and adhere together to create the handle.
Step 9 Score at 1" at each end and then adhere to the top as shown. Cut a piece of patterned paper at 3/8" x 5 2/16" and adhere over the top.
Step 10 Take a small washer and place it over the magnet on the front. Add some glue on it and close the top over the purse. Lift the top and the glue will leave a mark on the back of the top. Adhere the washer over this mark with Dries Clear Glue.
Step 11 Cut a piece of patterned paper 3" x 5 1/4". Die cut the edge with the edge die from the medallion set and then adhere to the back of the top as shown.
Step 12 Stamp the image from HCPC-3817 Lush Lilac & Umbrella Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black ink on white cardstock and die cut with the coordinating die. Sponge the leaves with Fern Green ink and color the flowers with the Purple and Lavender inks using the Dove Blender pen. Add Ultrafine glitter to the image with the Dries Clear Glue, shape and adhere to the front of the purse.
Step 13 Stamp the lilacs from the HCPC-3816 Lush Lilac Cling Stamp in Pearlescent Purple and Lavender inks, sponge with the coordinating inks, and die cut with the corresponding die. Shape the lilacs with the HCFB1-466 Lush Lilac Mold, allow to dry, shape and adhere the lilacs to lilac spray. Add Crystal Clear glitter to the lilacs with a damp sponge and add Lavender & Lace prills to the centres of the flowers with Dries Clear Glue.
Step 14 To finish, add Ultrafine Crystal glitter to the images with Dries Clear glue. Add pearls on the handle.
