I just discovered this fleur de lis paper in the DCWV Travel Stack and HAD to use it.
I grabbed this oblong shape from Gypsy Wanderings, using my Gypsy, I welded it into a purse shaped card measuring 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" so it will fit in a standard A2 envelope. The flap is a tag shape (also from Gypsy Wanderings) I welded to the blue fleur de lis layer. Originally, I designed this flap to open to revel the sentiment but decided I liked it better embossed on the bottom corner.
Here is the full height of the card, including the ribbon handle. I love the fleur de lis paper, but I grabbed the center compass from another patterned paper (I punched it out with a 1 1/2" circle punch) and added a 1 3/4" layer to match the card base too. The base is cut from a worn paper looking cardstock (also from the Travel DCWV paper stack).
I added a button to the center of the compass medallion, adding just a little bit of dimension. A second button adorns the bow on the left side of the handle. I inked all the paper edges with some brown ink and a finger dauber, I love the aged look this simple technique adds.
I embossed the Scrappy Mom's sentiment using super fine gold metallic embossing powers. I had a little issue getting a clean impression on the foiled paper, but I think it turned out fine.
Here you can see the fine details in the foil papers... I love it.
And one last look at my little bow. I use a bow-easy to get this uniform look on such a small bow.
