MIM #100: How to Package Cards with Oversized Embellishments…#4

by cbaptista on 01/20/2013

Told ya to expect at least another ;)

Okay, so I made a similar card earlier. I need another birthday card this month and liked the other layout so much that I decided to duplicate it.  I like giving unique cards so I changed out the colors of the flowers and butterfly and the background of the frame to suit the recipient.  I really loved the herringbone pattern so I kept it the same.  Since this oversized card would also need an envelope, I decided to submit it to this challenge as well (hope that’s okay).  I changed up the envelope a little by completely covering the front with the herringbone pattern instead of keeping it simple like before.  I was afraid to do this with the other envelope, but am so glad I did it with this one.  I love how it looks.  I actually stamped the pattern on a plain sheet of white photocopy paper and trimmed it slightly smaller than the envelope and adhered it to the envelope really well.  I like having the white frame around the pattern…just like on the card.

Thanks again for stopping by!
