New Design Team Member: Joni

I'd like to introduce you to our newest Design Team member, Joni.  She created this awesome card.  It's just perfect for fall!  I love the buttons, and the ribbon, and how they coordinate with the color scheme.  She used 2591 Pumpkin Farm.

Be sure to check out her blog too, it's awesome.  Click here to see.

Thanks, Joni, and welcome to our Design Team!

Purse Card

I thought I would share with you the pattern for this cute purse card!  This makes a great invitation, and would be really fun for a bridal shower, or a birthday party.  It would also make a fun way to give a gift card or some cash.  Just make a little pocket on the inside and put your gift card/money in.  What fun would that be?

Click here for the pattern.

It's super easy.  Just print the pattern on card stock, and cut it out.  Fold it, then stamp on it.  I added a ribbon for the handle by punching small holes in the card stock, slipping the ends of the ribbon through, and tying a knot.

The stamps used on this purse were: 74753 - Large Flourish; 74600 - Large Dot; and one of the flowers from 10506 - Wisteria Floral Set.  These are on sale right now, if you're interested in them.  Log onto the Victorine Originals website and click Sale Items.

Enjoy this free pattern!  I had fun making it!

And if you like these stamps, we're having a half price sale right now on the website!  Click here to check it out!
