Victorian Note Card Purse

Hi My name is Randi aka Coralz from the cricut mb. My day to be guest designer is here, I am so excited to share with you my project. I have had my Gypsy and my Cricut since the day they were each first released and I love everything about them. I love teaching and sharing my projects I have made with my Gypsy, I hope you enjoy this one. Pop over to my blog http://www.craftycricutcreations.blogspot.com/ to see more.

My assignment for this was to use page 30 from the Forever Young Cartridge. If you have re numbered your books that would be button number 7. Using my 12x12 mat, I chose 5.60 as my cursor size and then I rotated it to fit. I then used the girl from button 7 at 4 inches and welded her to the flap.
On mat number 2 I layed out all my pieces. I cut in brown the girl topper, the monogram C (from elegant cakes cart) and the shilouette image for my note card fronts. I also layed out some flowers. I wanted to create a distressed flower similar to the ones made with the Tim Holtz tattered flower die. You need 2 lg 1 med and 1 small to get this look. I just use random flowers from this cartridge. Mine measurements are 2 at 3.10, 1 at 2 and 1 at 1inch. I used a 10mm pearl for the flower center.

Here to create the note cards I used the oval also from page 30 button #7. I placed 2 on my mat at 3 1/2 inches. These fit into the gift bag nicely. I made sure they were side by side and that their Y axis were the same. Then I highlighted 1 and hit flip. After this I grouped them together and nudged them until they slightly overlapped. Once I previewed and saw the weld I highlighted the whole image and hit copy/paste (by the way I love that button) and duplicated it 3 more times rotating 2 of them until they all fit on the mat


I used 2 sheets of Cosmo Cricket "Something Special" 2 sided cardstock, 1 sheet of Bazzill Carob Brown and some plain white paper for the flowers, smooch spritz and lots of pearls to finish up this project. I hope you like it and I can not wait to see your version.
