I found a cool tutorial over on SCS. It is a crimped envelope card. Fast and so cute. I see them used for all kinds of things. Invitations, gift cards, love notes or little gifties. We all like those.
I made this card for a friend who isn't feeling very well right now. I seem to have too many of those these days.
For this you need a regular A2 envelope. You seal the flap and then cut 1 1/4 inches off the short end. You stamp the envelope and then run it through the crimper. Note: crimping will distort the image. I used the flower from Thoughts and Prayers. I used my quickie glue pen to trace the stem and then I poured on the new brown glitter.......so yummy!I stamped a sentiment on a card for the inside. Dimensions for this are 4 by 5 inches. I really love this idea.This is a picture with the lid off. I really hope my friend likes her card.
Here is one I did in riding hood red, using the Friends 24-7 set and the matching jumbo wheel. I love this set a lot, can't wait to play some more.
