The 3 P's...Papercraft Star Challenge #18, A Purse and Placecards

Papercraft Star is having another challenge...Here are the rules:

Thank You Themed Project
Use Dry Embossing on your project.
Use Cricut Cartridge Cut or Other Die Cut.
Use Metal on your project.
Add anything else you desire

So this is what I came up with:

Finished card: 5" x 5"

Cardstock: Brown, Rust, Yellow/Gold, and Patterned Paper
QuicKutz Embossing Folder, Thank You 2" x 2"
Sizzix Embossing Folders, Plaid
Cricut Cartridge Christmas Cards, (Base Card 3rd Button Bottom Row, Layer 3rd Button Top Row)
Brown ribbon
Two Gold Brads
Brown Pigment Ink

When I used the "Thank you so much" embossing folder, I wanted the words to "pop", so I inked the folder with the brown pigment ink first, then I used my Sizzix machine to emboss.

I picked up the other embossing folder, "Plaid", from AC Moore last night. It's from Sizzix and comes in a 2 folder set. The other folder is "Snowflakes". I really like them as they give a deep embossed look. I also picked up 2 other sets. (Powdered Sugar & Snow Globe Set and Phrases, Merry Christmas #2 & Thin Ice Set). I can't wait to try

Here's a picture of two other projects that I just finished...A purse from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More Cricut Cartridge with a small card...(the purse is perfect for holding a gift card), and some Placecards for Thanksgiving. I used the turkey from Cricut Cartridge Simply Charmed.

Sorry, I couldn't get a good picture of the placecards...they all came out washed out looking. They look much nicer in person.

Hope you enjoyed all the projects and you forgive me for not posting anything for a week. As you can see, I have been busy.

Now you get busy, and imagine what you could do....
