Envelope for a handmade card.


In my previous post, I showed you a card for my aunt's birthday,
with a gift card inside.
We are challenged to complete our cards with some creative 
packaging, such as an envelope, all ready to mail.


I made an envelope from PTI's Pale Peony Designer Cardstock,
a Memory Keepers 1-2-3 Punchboard,
and stamps from Color Pop Florals, and a frame stamp
from Monthly Moments: Travel Plans.


Do you have people in your life that love your crafty card making?
My aunt, my dad's only sister, loves my cards. She keeps every one!
Whenever I visit, she takes me on a tour of my cards on display! 
And I can't think of a better reason to make her cards and yes, her 
envelopes extra special!


I stamped the back of the large dot Peony card stock, before using my envelope punch,
then folded and glued the flaps.
I love doing custom envelopes to match a card. A bit extra work,
but well worth the effort!
