Home Envelope Card

Hi everyone Steph Ackerman here today.   This month we've been asked to create tags.

Susan K Weckesser  papers lend themselves to cutting, inking, tearing and anything you might want to do.  They are incredibly detailed and a wonderful heavy quality.

I have a ton of envelopes and thought it was time to use them, just not in the traditional way they were intended!!!!  And this is a great way to use up tons of left over scraps.

The clouds were the perfect backdrop for the fussy cut house on the front of the envelope.  First I inked the tiny flowers from Susan K Weckesser  stencil with ColorBox Crafter's Ink.  Then I fussy cut the house from the pattern paper and placed it on top.  Home was stamped on a scrap because I thought this would be great to give someone moving into their new home.
"home" was stamped repeatedly on the card insert and a strip of flowers was added to the bottom to create a pocket to hold the gift card.

I tied May Arts ribbon to the card so the recipient could easily pull the card from it's envelope.

I had so much fun creating this envelope card.  Why not pull out some envelopes and create one today.

Thanks for stopping by today.
