5 Minute Faux Leather Purse!

Hi! Dawn Lusk here... a tad late, but hey, it's my birthday, I'll blame it on getting forgetful in my "old age" LOL!!

In order to still make a post today, I had to think of something quick and easy. With the holidays coming up (or any occasion for that matter!), I went to my stash of Creative Cuts and More goodies and found this Purse A2 Card.

In just 5 minutes I was able to create this darling faux leather gift card holder!
All I did was run my Purse through my Cuttlebug with my Kassie's Brocade embossing folder, drag my Brushed Corduroy distress ink over it then, using a sponge, I added some Pumice Stone distress ink. I took my Versamark pad and "smooshed" (technical stamping term!) all over, sprinkled with clear embossing powder and heat set! Voila! You could add a button as a faux closure too.

Easy peasy... everything from CCM comes pre-cut and scored, giving you lots more creating time!!
