Just A Note Card with a Dangle Purse Charm

Hello everyone!  Today, I have a card with a little gift all in one to share with you.  

Dangle purse charms are so trendy right now and why not create one to add to the front of a card.  These are quick, easy and inexpensive to create--plus they really dress up the card and make cute little gifts.  

To create the dangle purse charm I started with a bottle cap, added the image and then added the clear round epoxy sticker.  Then I punched a couple of holes in the bottle cap--top and bottom.  Next I added Silver Jump Rings and some Silver Tone Chain (Item #CH876-P) to the bottle cap and started creating the dangle charm.  I added a bird charm from the Birds of a Feather collection, a tree from the Natures Garden Charm Collection , a silver flower charm and a couple of Frosted Acrylic Flower Beads (Item #ABD332-BK) with pearls.  All of the charms, chain and jump rings are from  ButterBeeScraps.  Then I added a large clasp.  When I made the bow I added a Silver Jump Rings so I would be able to clip on the dangle purse charm and add it to the card.  I added one of the Frosted Acrylic Flower Beads (Item #ABD332-BK) with a pearl to the top so when the dangle purse charm is removed there wouldn't be an empty jump ring on the bow.  Tip--I know the chunky dangle purse charms are very popular but when you are adding one to a card don't make it too chunky or your card won't be able to stand up with the charm attached to it.  ;-)

To create the card base I used black cardstock with S6-001 5x7 Matting Basics A die template.  Then I used kraft cardstock with the S5-211 Romantic Rectangles Two die template.  Before removing the paper I inked the inside edges with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  Then I stamped a sentiment from the CR-04915 Just A Note Vintage Sentiment Tag Clear Stamp Set from  JustRite® Papercraft.  Next I die cut the birds using black cardstock and the IN-024 Bird On A Wire die template.  All of the die templates are from  Spellbinders Paper Arts®.  I used 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L™ in between the layers and to add some dimension.  

I hope you like the card I shared today.  It would be a great card and gift to give to your girlfriends.  
Hope you have a Fantastic weekend!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
