Coordinating Cards And Envelopes

I’m so on a roll creating matching envelopes for my cards. Tomorrow, I’ll also show you a scrapbook page I made using a little envelope I created!

I’m in a monthly swap with an amazing group of crafters so of course I am always thinking of new ways to “wow” them. Our upcoming theme is “spring cards” so I wanted to use one of my favorite dies, Fun Flowers, and create my card around that.

I used Pink Pirouette and Black for my basic colors. I used the largest 2 flowers from the die and then I crumpled and peeled apart the card stock on the flowers to create more dimension. The zigzag line in the middle is made using the Tasteful Trim 120893) Bigz XL Die. (Side note: I was at a retreat at Priceless Memories in Wylie and we all used this die for our cardmaking and scrapbooking…fun times! If you have a group that likes to go on scrapbooking retreats, check it out).

I used Designer Series Paper (this one is, sadly, retired) for the envelope and then made a little embellishment to seal the back of the envelope. I’ll have to hand-deliver this one…USPS wouldn’t like it!
