Diagonal Framed Handbag Card

Hi bloggers!  What gal doesn't love a beautiful handbag??  I think this die set makes a great birthday card too.  Today's video will give you some ideas in ways in which you can use it in your crafting.

The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x  9" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hello Sue, beautiful card, lovely handbag and flowers.
Laine, i am so very sorry to hear of how poorly you have been. It must be scary having these problems with your eyes, sight is so precious. Bless your Mum for being your PA, she is a gem. Hope you get well soon. Yvonne too, what a pair you are. Seriously girls,missing you both, take care, and keep the glitter for the cards Yvonne, it's not eye make up.
Elaine, good news about Andrew, glad he feels well after treatment. What a carry on you have to get in and out of your home. The Council have a legal responsibility to provide safe entry and exit for you. Get on to your MP if they won't act. How is your SIL, after her op, hope all went well.
Norah loved your tale about the wedding, I'm glad you had a lovely day though after all your rushing about.
Thank you June, I think you are too.
Have a lovely day everyone, hugs to all especially our poorly and missing friends and their carers.

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Morning Sue. A lovely sample for a damp miserable start up here in Lancashire. The only issue I have is that the gorgeous handbag looks overwhelmed by the other dies and it's beauty is lost, it could be that the colour is too similar and if the bag was a lighter contrasting shade or the other dies were lighter then your gorgeous bag would stand out more maybe ? I love all the other dies and they compliment your handbag beautifully, it's just that it's beauty is lost somewhere in the background and it's such a shame. I've done it again I'm afraid Sue, I've been to 'picky' ! Hope I've not offended.
Bug hugs and love coming your way, off to watch your tutorial xxx

Massive big hugs to lorraine hope the drops do their magic for you quickly ,her Mum and Yvonne when i was on my antibiotic eye drops , i could not see clearly for an hour they did work tho , just take care .

Maureen , you are just being polite ,you know as well as i do they are trying to keep me out of the building .

I have to get a form today from reception to explain my problem of getting into the building ,it is privately owned and i do know they have helped residents in the passed ie fitting a shower /wet room for two residents and putting in a hand rail for another , so i will have to see if they can help me .

Mary did not have her operation until late afternoon ,they said it went well and she has had a comfortable night , i hope to hear more today .

CHERYL Brown said...

Morning Sue,

Another gorgeous creation from you. Love the combo and the dinky little handbag.

Playing catch up with comments from the weekend. Wimbledon takes up most of my viewing pleasures, I can craft as I watch without feeling too guilty about the housework (naughty swear word). That can wait, I only have 6 days left of my tennis holiday and no Fetes in the next couple of months so can indulge myself a bit or a lot.

Gurt big squashy hugs to all in need of one and to everyone else who would love one just because...

Love 7 hugs

Yorks butterfly said...

Morning Sue, great card and video. Love the handbag Dies.

Donita Naylor said...

Dear Sue and Fellow Amazed Blog Commenters,

How pretty, pretty, pretty this is! Not being very much a girly girl, I would do everything but the handbag, either putting a sentiment there or the center of one of the die sets.

Once I asked Sue if she cuts the middle out of the mirror card when she just needs an edge to show on the outside, instead of wasting all that valuable mirror under the central layer, and she said she does but not when she's demonstrating how to make the card, so as not to complicate the instructions.

It's pretty magical that suddenly pearls appeared on the border pieces without ever being put on! In the video anyway, unless I dozed off for that part.

Sharon, Laine and Yvonne, I hope you're feeling better by leaps and bounds. What a dearie pie your Mum is, Laine, typing your blog comments for you! I hope she reads this to you! She rocks and rolls, baby!

Thanks for the wedding tales, Mrs McPhee.

Best to you, Pam, Elaine and Rosemary, as you get things worked out.

And hugs to all who are too shy or polite to say they're struggling.

I'm not into handbags but its a lovely card anyway, and I know most ladies are into them lol.

Hi Sue, definitely a card for the 'girls' today and a clear video, thank you. Love the dies used and the Brambled Rose embossing folder.

Laine - Keratitis - ouch! Falkirk eye hospital is not the most salubrious of places to hang around in so you have my double sympathy :-) Thank you Mrs E for becoming Laine's secretary.
PP - what were you thinking or then again maybe you weren't, did you somehow think it would make your eyes sparkle more?

Tressa said...

I must be a rarity in not being bothered with handbags, I use one until it falls apart then buy another with reluctance!!!

For that reason I am not fussed with the handbag centre but I do like the overal design, very classy.

Waited until had time for the video before commenting today, Sue - (busy busy) - and this is a really elegant card. Don't have any of the ingredients so will just admire. Pleased Donita said you 'gutted' your card off camera, was thinking OMG what a waste. However, have more than one overflowing bit box of operational removals available for transplant! Thanks as ever for the video.
Laine and PP - so sorry for your eye problems, hope better soon. Laine's Mum - well done on the secretarial duties but watch her, she'll have you slaving at all sorts soon.

Hi Sue, such a pretty card today. Really must get that EF.A woman can never have too many handbags I always say to my husband, as they're usually full of his 'rubbish' too. i.e. spare pair of glasses/car keys etc. Staying in the Lake District till Friday and struggled to get on line so please don't think I've forgotten about you if I don't manage to comment. Hugs xx P Austen

Hi Sue,
First of all, thank you so much for the Poinsettia Cluster set dies. I received it yesterday. It is so beautiful.

The card is beautiful, elegant and girlie. You know how much I love Samantha, so this card is a winner for me.

Pam – Hope all is well at work. Have they sorted out your prescription yet?
Laine & PP – Dear princesses (hope you smile now), so sorry to hear about your problems. Please follow all your doctors’ instructions to get better soon and come back. You are missed by so many, including myself … more or less:) A special hug for your mum, Laine.
Elaine – Hope they sort out something for you soon. Glad Mary’s surgery went well. Wish her a speedy recovery and send lots of hugs for you all.

Hugs to all,
Still a newbie to Craft / not longer the newest, or the only Canadian Wilsonette
