Hangbag card - This one's for Wendy

Today my post is for my blogger friend Wendy,  (check out her blog Purple Crazy ), who was the lovely lady who helped me when I was setting up my blog. She asked me yesterday for some instructions for the stepper card I made and I must be honest when I wrote them down, I got myself in abit of a pickle, so that one is for a later date. So, instead Wendy I hope that you like this one as much. I made this handbag card yesterday, well more of a gift really, whilst playing with a piece of 12 x 12 core'dinations cardstock which of course I bought from Crafters Companion. So as this is not too complicated for me to write the instruction I thought that I would share it with you. This is such an easy card to make but, I must admit the decorating of the card took the most time, but the good thing about that is, that you can decide on how much or little you would like to decorate it, I got abit carried away and did both sides.

To make this I used:

Popcorn Pals CD's one and two from Crafters Companion
Spellbinders dies
Flowers and brads from my stash
Martha Stewart punch for the hearts
4 Joy crafts die for the flowers.
Boxer board and Ultimate Pro from Crafters Companion for your scoring
Plenty of Glue
Piece if Core'dinations 12 x 12 cardstock
Small Velcro fastener

You will need to score your piece of 12 x 12  Core'dinations cardstock every 4" both ways this will give you a set of 9 squares, I have used my Ultimate Pro and Boxer Board for this. The four corner squares need to be scored diagonally across the square from the outer corner to the inner corner. On the two outside middle panels mark the centre point and score to the inner corners of the square. I have taken some photos to show you how I have scored the card which hopefully will make the instruction make more sense. All your score lines need to be folded and scored well with your bone folder and every fold needs to be a valley fold. For the handles I have used a strip of 1" card and secured with a brad and glue and the fastening strap is 0.75" wide again secured with a brad and glue and a Velcro fastener.
