Envelope Card


So Everybody Art Challenge is for an Envelope card but there was no way I could have an empty envelope.
First off I made the envelope using the tutorial on Heather's Blog and the papers are possibly Cosmo Cricket.
To decorate I used the Magnolia Doo Hickey swirls and EK success funky flower punches.
Didn't realise this first pic was so blurry, sorry but it gets better.

I decorated inside, well just the bit you could see and I had issues with the catch to hold it closed. First off I tried a magnet but it kept pulling the paper off, next I used a velcro button, its a bit better but not pefect but it will do.

I made a gift holder inside, it holds a present for DD for tomorrow.


Here's a closer look, matching flowers and I made the pocket for the gift card. I also used the Martha Stewart round the page punches but this one I can chop it up to make it smaller and the deep edge doily punch for round the oval. Of course the adorable cute image is a Whiff of Joy.
Do pop over to the challenge blog and check out the gorgeous creations made by the team.
I'm having internet issues this morning, I use firefox and its on a go slow, at the moment I'm using Google Chrome but I've no bookmarks and still finding my feet but at least I can post todays blog post.

    On google chrome if you go to the spanner in the top right corner & click on it & then go down to bookmarks it will then open up another small list & there should be one saying Import from IE....that will import all your favourite bookmarks etc from internet explorer. Hope this is what you meant lol.....
