Layers Of Color Gift Set
Hello everyone! Today I'm happy to share a Layers of Color gift set I made! I used the Victorian Frame Cling art stamp to create my frame for my card and a matching handle for my little purse gift card/ gift holder. The image itself is colored with Copics and cut out right along the outside of the stamped line. I have matted it on the card with Soft Suede card stock cut with Spellbinder's Label Fourteen, which the stamp was custom designed for. My basic card stock is Papertrey Aqua Mist, run through the Cuttlebug with the Cassie's Brocade folder, then sponged with TH Distress Ink.
To make the purse I cut and colored two of the Victorian Frames and cut them out, folded them in half with finished sides out and adhered together. This way both the front and back of each handle is finished off. I cut two Spellbinders Label twelve, ran through the Bug with Cassies Brocade and embossed the same as the card. I cut a strip of aqua card stock 1.5" wide by 7 3/8" long, scoring along the long edge at 1/2" and 1". Across the short side I scored at 2 1/4" in from each end, snipped in to the long score line and folded. I adhered the folded edges to the front and back of my labels twelve with tacky tape. I cut a Spellbinders Label Label Ten and cut 1.5" off from the longest point on both ends, embossed and sponged. I adhered my handles to the outside of my purse with just enough overlap to hold, then adhered the 1.5" cuts of the label ten to serve as a flap on the purse front and back, and that covers the edges of the handles. I added a Prima embellishment and Papertrey Aqua Mist ribbon.
The card is very straight forward, using the same materials listed above. The sentiment is from a Verve set "Feeling Groovy". I cut off the frame with a straight edge just for interest. I spritzed everything with Glimmer Mist in gold when finished.
I hope you enjoyed this little project and that you might try one yourself! It was a lot of fun coming up with my own design that I thought was a unique way to use the victorian frame. If you make one please link me and let me know so I can come see yours!!!
