Just for you


What fun I had making this card and envelope! I started with a spring-y themed card with lots of washi tape and stamped and die cut butterflies. I wanted it to look like the butterflies were flying off the edge of the card.





That meant that it wouldn't fit in a regular envelope. So I made a sleeve from vellum. I repeated the colours with the butterflies, tag and washi tape.





And here's the finished package.




I liked up with PTI's Make it Monday challenge to make an envelope for oversized embellishments. And I just had to play along with the Simon Says Stamp challenge to use washi tape!

Thanks for checking out my project!
