Graphic 45 
Portrait of a Lady
Deluxe Collector's Edition
Gift Card Purse

Hello dear G45ers!
Happy to share my project this month featuring the
 stunning Graphic 45 Portrait of a Lady Deluxe 
Collector's Edition.

I created a Gift Card Purse with a Card.
 I used my Silhouette to cut the box (purse).

I love the color combo of this collection, the pinks 
and greens are so pretty and the accompanying 
chipboard and stickers add the perfect finishing 
touch to any project.

Herewith the Supplies and Instructions you may use to
 recreate such a project:

Other Supplies used:
Silhouette Cut File:
3D Gift Card Wallet by Lori Whitlock Design ID 45493

Bow Cutting Die
Scoring Board
Kraft Cardstock
Velcro Dots
Foam Adhesive Squares
Chipboard Leaves
Watercolor Paper 
Embossing Powder

Cut a purse from the pattern sheets in the collection. Cut two 
strips as seen below to be used as 'straps' for the purse.

Add lace to the piece of the purse that is supposed to line the inside
of the purse, however I used it to line the outside instead.
Tip: adding lace to this piece will look neat when adhering it to 
the outside of the purse.

Cut a card from the pattern sheets (measurements: 18.5 cm x 12 cm)
and score in half. Cut two more pieces for the gift card holder
 (measurements: 12 cm x 9 cm 'pink piece' and 11.5 cm x 8.5 cm to mat.

Fussy cut some elements from the collection to decorate the 
card and gift card holder.

Die cut a bow, assemble and fasten with a brad. Remember to 
add it to the hole of the lid of the purse.
Tip: curl two bow strips forming a curve using the back of a 
pencil or similar object. This makes folding the end pieces 
together a little easier. 

Heat emboss some leaf chipboard embellishments.

Add a chipboard embellishment from the collection at the bottom
of the purse underneath the velcro dot as seen below.

Add a sticker from the collection on the lid of the purse before 
adding a Velcro dot.
Tip: the sticker will cover up the brad from the bow that goes 
through the hole of the purse.

Adhere the fussy cut elements and chipboard leaves with
 adhesive foam squares making sure that the gift card can 
easily slide in and out of the holder.

Adhere all the fussy cut elements, chipboard and stickers to the
 card with adhesive foam squares to give dimension.
