Check out these gorgeous designer bags! Oh, wait, they're cards! Today Melanie shows you how to make trendy-looking purse cards with the zipper stamp from her Triple Play Fillers set! The embossed zippers makes these look so real, little else is required! She also shares an easy way to design different purse shapes without using a template, plus tips for notching the zipper and incorporating embossing folders to add fun textures. Have fun surfing the web for purse images as inspiration to be your own “handbag designer”! A similar design would also make great diaper bag cards for baby showers.
TIP: To make the zippers meet in a “V”, the midway point of the bottom of this card is 2 3/4”. You can make a tiny mark this at the bottom before doing any shaping on the card with your scissors, and then stamp the zipper each time going through this mark.
