Girl Time Gift Set

You all know how much I love my curved mega rectangle nestabilities and using them as card bases, right? Well, I found this tutorial from Nichole Heady on how to make a purse out of PTI's clear boxes...very cool tutorial...but guess what?? It happens to be the PERFECT size to hold my curved mega rectangle notecards! Whoo-hoo!



The set I used is JustRite's Girl Time Set from Stamper's Dream...an adorable set with all kinds of cute girly-girl images and sentiments....perfect for my cousin, Linda (the same one that I made last week's handbag and card insert for). She has three very close friends at work...they do everything together...work together, go shopping, vacation together, etc. Seriously, best buds! I figure she can keep these in her desk at work to write notes to her friends when they're going out for lunch, meeting for drinks after work, and stuff like that.

The purse on the outside of the card is heat embossed with white embossing powder. The pink oval is up on Dimensionals.

Here's a picture of everything together:



Here are pictures of each individual card. I made two of each of these. A total of eight cards fit inside the purse....and each card has a layer of dimensionals too (the vellum scalloped oval), so you can even "fatten" them up a bit and they'll still fit inside the purse. Some have ribbon, some don't.
