You Are One Fabulous Pursen!

This is a card I made for a very dear friend of mine for her birthday. She absolutely LOVES purses and bags. I swear, she probably has an entire room filled with them. So, naturally, when thinking of her and making a card for her birthday, I chose two fabulous sets from Doodle Pantry!

 I used the set Purse Parfait for the designer paper and sentiment. Both were printed on white card stock and I used a punch from Stampin' Up! to punch out the sentiment. I distressed the sentiment with black ink and used foam tape to pop it up. I created the actual purse using the Purse Parfait SVG set. Seriously, look at the details of this adorable purse. I cut all the pieces using my Silhouette Cameo and red, black, silver and white card stocks. I did two "offsets" on the purse to create the white and black layers so the purse wouldn't get lost on the designer paper. This was also popped up with foam tape. The lipstick is cut file from Silhouette's online store. I also did an "offset" on this cut file to give it an additional layer. I had so much fun creating this for her. Here is a picture and a link to both sets:
