Hello friends!

I hope wherever you are visiting us from today, that
your day is wonderful.  There is nothing quite like getting a handmade
card in the mail.  It feels, really good.  What also feels good, is
getting to send a card in the mail, to put a smile on a loved ones
face.  The project I am sharing today, happens to be a coordinating
envelope and card.  This particular piece of paper in the Bright Side
Collection, is perfect to create an envelope out of. Then a happy card
to go with it.

There are so many punches, dies, templates, etc that help you create a
envelope.  You really only need a scoring tool and adhesive.  I used a
punch to create the envelope below.  Once everything was scored,
adhesive was added.

Next, I created a pink card base, and picked out a few Ephemera die
cuts that coordinated with the envelope.  I decided to cut the
sentiment die cut, so that it would fit the card. To add more depth
the floral diecuts were popped up with foam adhesive.

Since there was extra pattern paper left from the envelope, I used it
to decorate the inside of the card. Decorating the inside of a card is
a great finishing touch, that gives a great wow factor.
