Card with Matching Tote

I had been asked to make a card that came with a little something extra.  I laughed……money usually comes to my mind for a card with a little something extra! *smile*  But that wasn’t the case, they wanted a paper craft of some type.  I had to do a little surfing the internet to find their “something extra”…..this is what I came up with…….do you think they will like it?

I understand I can’t give out the directions for this great little tote because I had to purchase it.  But if interested HERE is the link where you can purchase it.  If you study it long enough I bet you can figure it out *smile*

A closer look at the tote….

I added my own little touch by tacking on the inside pockets…a closer look here…..

All my totes have some type of a pocket inside, don’t yours?  This was so simple to do, the dotted line in the middle is the divider between two small pockets.

I used my scalloped oval and small oval punches for the decorative piece tied to the outside of the tote.

Here’s a closer look at the card…

I also wanted to point out the layering of the Beautiful Wings Butterfly set…

Oooops almost forgot, there’s an inside…

When I took these pictures the weather was very stormy, dreary and rainy.  They are calling for the same for the next day or two.  So the clarity of these pictures are not quite up to snuff.  If I did not take them today it would be next week before I could get them on the blog.  I decided as they may not be 100%, I could live with them.  Hope you can to.

Supplies needed ~ all are SU! unless otherwise noted

  • Card stock – W. White, P. Plum, C. Coral (retired),D. Delight and C. Green
  • Punches – Beautiful Wings Die, S. Oval, Sm. Oval, Circle, Boho Blossom, Spellbinders and MS punch
