Hey there friends,
It’s Pinky today and I wanted to share a way to jazz up those envelopes as
well as create a cool mixed media card.
The coolest thing about CutCardStock is the AMAZING quality.
As you know Mixed Media tends to get messy and has a lot of weight
to it so you need a good thick paper to handle it all.
The Curious Metallics are perfect plus they are…METALLIC with a shimmer.
You can SEW through it without it tearing or breaking even after adding spray.
Take Curious Metallic Ice Gold cardstock, spritz with Goosebumps texture spray.
Set aside to dry for about an hour.
When it is dry- use stencil and gradiated ink to press into textured areas
and create butterfly background patterns.
Dry ink using heat gun.
Trim out to 5X7 size.
Use a crackle stamp in same ink colors to add more texture.
Using Curious Metallic Mandarin cardstock punch out
Stitch through butterflies, then around card using sewing machine.
Adhere card front to Stardream Metallic A7 Folded Invitation.
Using border punch and punch out bottom of Brown Bag Kraft A7 Envelope.
Using Curious Metallic Mandarin cardstock trim out 4X7″ piece.
Fold in half.
Place thin layer of adhesive at bottom crease and place in envelope.
Hold in place- then adhere sides inside envelope to ensure strength.
Now you have a cool jazzed up envelope, to coordinate with your mixed media card.
I hope you enjoyed my crafty fun today.
Until next time- Keep on creating!
