Quick Easy and So Nice Card Holder

I love this project and I got it from Patty Bennett as a down loadable tutorial. You can go to her blog and find the Purse Tote with Cards. The purse tote took me about 10 minutes to make, the cards to go in the tote & the front of the purse took a little bit longer. I would make a suggestion that you cut your paper 10 inches instead of 8 1/2 inches because then you can pick up the tote with the cards in it easier.
This is a shot of the front and what it looks like open with the cards in it.This is the inside before I put the cards in it. I apologize for the horrible pictures the focus was really bad on some of these or they were way dark. I asked for a Lakeside Photo lab $35 for Christmas so we'll see if I get it or if I have to buy it but if I don't get more comments I just may wonder if I need it since no one wants to comment.
This is card #1 with lots of silver mini balls on it like the front of the card, MS edge punch and SU Baja Breeze ribbon.
Card # 2 is again simple with ribbon and a couple of stamps. All the insides have white on them with the DSP edge (forgot to take a picture of that).

Card #3 was easy with ribbon that actually matches but in this picture it sure doesn't look like it does. I thought the butterflies with rhinestones and the Snowman were cute on dotted swiss Cuddlebug folder paper.
Card #4 is horrible in this photo but I took over 8 pictures and this was the best. Again super simple design with oval punches and pearl embellishments. My hairdresser will love this he's my best customer and promoter.....Thanks Joey.

Stamps Sets: SU Medallion, SU Simple Friendship, SU Oval All
Papers: DSP SU Spring Silhouettes, Baja Breeze, Certainly Celery, Always Artichoke, Vellum
Inks: SU Baja Breeze, Amuse Black
Accessories: SU ribbon, MM bead dots, SU ticket punch, CM corner rounder, MS border punches, MS butterfly punch.

Have a great weekend I'm off to play some more gotta make something for Linda (she's Joey's co-owner and sidekick).
God Bless.
