Now I must admit that everytime I made a matching envelope....you got it!!! It inspired another card!! Any of my students will tell you that before this One Heart.... One Mind Marathon I had never made an evelope...okay don't shoot me!! True confessions..I make cards to teach classes with...I never send them. Athough I guess that will have to change too since my mom recently announced that she now expects a handmade Birthday card.
Now part of the reason that I had not made any envelopes is that I didn't have a great template...but One Heart ...One Mind has thought of everything they have 3 great templates. One for square cards and one for rectangular cards. The third template is an envelope lining template. Which I used to dress up some of my plain white Diecut with a view envelopes left over from all the glitter packs of cards I have cut up. Since all the envelopes I made with the two Merry Merry Collection were DOUBLE SIDED!! I love double sided paper- it's like having twice as many scraps!!
Next I created yet another glitter card... I couldn't resist playing with the border piece of paper that said "I've been naughty...I've been nice" and thought this would be a great gift certificate holder card. To make the card fit a 5 X 5 envelope I trimmed down the 5.5 x 5.5 Red Glitter Card and while I was cutting I also decided to trim one inch of the bottom front edge of the card so that you could see the I've been Naughty...Nice verse both from the front of the card and from the inside where I made a pocket to place a gift card. I thought that whoever I sent this cute card to would certainly have to think about whether they were naughty or nice. So that's the end of this marathon...and I made everything that you have seen on the last 4 Posts in one afternoon!! I love it when it all just flows without any designer blocks!!
Thanks for visiting. The Merry Merry Border Paper is an absolute must have as it can be cut into tons of cards.
