Beyond the Garden Designer Series Paper Purse #2

My share today is another Stampin' Up! Beyond the Garden Designer Series Paper (DSP) Purse that I made using my pattern for the Beyond the Garden DSP Purse that I posted yesterday.  The purse will hold five 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" cards, depending on the cards' embellishments.

The pattern, as contained in my Beyond the Garden DSP Purse tutorial, allows for different decorations on the front of the purse.  This purse front is embellished with many blossom petals made with the Blossom Petals Punch.  I'm sure you've seen purses with numerous petals covering the purse front.  This purse resembles such purses.

The Poppy Parade Card Stock was used for the body of the purse and the blossom petals.  One of the designs within the Beyond the Garden DSP was used for the purse closure and the center flower of the purse front.  The petals were embossed with the Stampin' Up! Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder and spritzed with the Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz.  The handle on the purse was made with Poppy Parade 1/2" Stitched-Poly Ribbon.

Don't waste time searching for item numbers to purchase any of the products used in this project.  Simply click on the links and you'll be taking right to the product.

God's Blessings!
