I have one card to share with you before I rush out to teach a cardmaking class. I am very excited about some mini envelope templates created by JudiKins that I purchased at Absolutely Everything in Topsfield, MA the other day when MaryBeth and I were out shopping. A few people who know me know that I love "mini" things and that's why these templates caught my eye. They're made of plastic so they can be used over and over again.
I decided to use the gift tag envelope on my card. I traced and scored the template onto a sheet of SEI frost paper from their Winter Song collection, cut and folded what I had traced and created an adorable mini envelope. It reminds me of the envelopes from The Jolly Postman which used to be one of Marie's favorite books.
Cut a small piece of white tag and used a Stampendous "Thank you" stamp to stamp my message onto the tag. Then I ran the white tag through a Cuttlebug dotted embossing folder. I used a couple of markers to highlight some of the raised dots on the tag.
Cut a piece of SEI flurry kisses from their Winter Song collection to use for the layering paper on my white card. I used a Martha Stewart punch to add some fun to the red and white checked side of the paper. And that's it! A cute card made in a very short time!
Off to teach some adults some papercrafting tricks!
Have a great day!
