It's a card within a card! How fun is that? I am not sure I'm in love with my color choices, but I do love the style of the card. I am definitely going to have to make more of these! It's hard to tell from the picture, but the strip of green is torn instead of a clean cut. I liked that at first, but now I don't! I'll post the details below, but I cut the envelope and assembled it, then made a little card to go inside.
I inked all the edges and tied some twine around the envelope to make it "fancier". I love twine! And now I have a gazillion yards of it... =) I attached the envelope using foam dots to make it stand up.
Here's what my mini card looks like. I cut it and then embellished it with a tab and brad. It's a really fun card and I'm already planning my next one. Have you ever made one of these cards?
