I really don’t know where to start with this card, it’s a one off and was made to order for my sister in law, the brief was:- pink, bag, girlie, her name and charms would be nice!
At the widest point the card measures 8.5 ins and is 7.5 ins tall including the handles.
After this, I made two copies of the bag panels, drawing lines on the one side of each and sticking pink Brazill paper on the other. Then, with the lined side facing upwards I machine sewed along all the lines (I hope that makes sense). When this was done I stuck both panels onto the sides of the card blank. This gave the card weight and texture (plus a lot of fiddle fart for me!)
I made double sided handles for the bag and machine sewed them together round the edges ….
….. and stuck them on the inside of the card, covering the ends with another panel shaped piece of paper….
……. I’ve then used self adhesive Velcro dots as fasteners to keep the bag together when standing up.
The finishing touches were made by adding the name “Jess” and some silver charms.
Then, goodness knows what possessed me, I made a wallet to go inside the bag to put some birthday money in, which stays in position with the aid of another Velcro dot.
An awful lot of fiddle fart for one card …….
……….which is why I said at the beginning it was a one off!
