Whiff of Joy Challenge - money/gift card holder

This week at Whiff of Joy Challenge we would like to see money or gift card holders!!! The DT have made a fabulous variety of money holders for your inspiration from cards to bags and this purse from me!! It is roughly based on a tutorial I found on Split Coast Stampers forum here. I embossed some cream card with a big shot embossing folder and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. The reverse of the cardstock was covered with a patterened paper from Basic Grey Boxer collection and then stitched the edges with my sewing machine. The purse is held closed with magnets from Basic Grey. The ribbon is from my stash and the gorgeous diamante slider is from the Hobby House.

Inside the purse I made a gift card holder from some scraps of the embossed cardstock before attaching a "bag charm" which I made from some beads, chain and jump rings. I then stamped and coloured Shopping Willow onto shrink plastic to add to the "bag charm".

Hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week at Whiff of Joy challenge. Thanks for looking! x
