Project Instructions:

Other products:  White Card Stock, Teal Card Stock, Brown Card Stock, Versafine Spanish Moss, White Detail Embossing Powder, Worn Lipstick Distressed Ink, Versamark, Ranger Verdigris Embossing Powder, Colored Pearls and Bling from my stash and die cutting machine.


Start by making a suitcase shaped card out of white cardstock using your electronic cutting machine.  I made mine based on a few different images I saw online and my card measures approximately 6 1/4″ square.  I finished off my card with decorative elements cut from Teal and Brown cardstock and featuring decorative paper from the Young At Heart Paper Collection.  The leave flourishes were created using the Window Box Fillers Cling Stamp Set stamped on white cardstock with Spanish Moss ink and die cut with the matching die before lightly distressing with Olive Grove.  The cute flowers were stamped on white card stock with Frost White and heat embossed with White detail embossing powder before die cut with the matching die.  They were distressed with Worn Lipstick and finally they were shaped with the Flower Shaping tool.  The Journey sentiment was stamped on white card stock with Versamark and heat embossed with Ranger Verdigris embossing powder before die cutting with the matching die.  Finally, after the card was assembled as shown colored pearls and bling from my stash were added for that finishing touch!

Have a fantasic day!  Hope to see you very soon.
