Envelope Shaped Card

Good morning everyone -  today sharing an envelope shaped card. 
This style card seems to have a few names - but I quite like " overloaded envelope ".
I remember a few years ago, I used this style for one of my digital kits. This was a popular make at the time.

Again I have used Mintay Papers - Lovely Day. I can't seems to get enough of these. 
I cut a basic envelope shape by hand and made a pocket to sit all the embellishments.

 As you can see, I've loaded it up with all cut-outs from the sheets. Layering them with silicone. Lemoncrafts " leaves " pad and " butterflies " sheet was used for larger leaves.

 Then finished of with a silk ribbon. 
Don't forget the new challenge we have until end of the month. Theme is LEAVES. So, get your creations uploaded for us all to see.
Happy crafting.

Mintay Papers - so Lush.

Good morning everyone - I'm sharing a card using the lovely Mintay papers.
" Lovely Day " is my favourite colour combination. I could spent all day cutting and layering the elements together. 
Every cut-out as so many possibilities, from new home, someone going away on vacation or a even a keen photographer.
All have been mounted with silicone to give 3D effect.

I also like to save birthday cards - recycling sentiments or in this case, the butterflies. 
They always come in handy and in this case - matched the papers perfectly,
 as did the " happy birthday ". Don't ever throw away. I look at things with a crafter's mind.
Or in my case a hoarder!

Please don't forget to enter the new challenge " leaves " . How easy is that? Get your leaf patterned paper, dies, punches, foamiran or stamps out and get creating. Can't wait to see your makes.
Happy crafting.

October Challenge Crafteezee

 Good morning everyone. Hope I find you all well?
We have a new Challenge over at Crafteezee. This time round it is " Leaves ".
So get your foamiran, dies, punches or cut-outs at the ready and start creating.

I have said before that I am totally in awe with Lemoncraft papers. So just had to get them out again.
They're so lush and if your like me that loves their papers, I always have to get 2 of each.

I love spending time just cutting out the little elements on the sheets. 
It's so relaxing for me.

I've used Lady E dies for my leaves, using foamiran.
Can't wait to see what you all create. Don't forget to pop over to the Design Teams blogs and give them so loving.
Here are the list of products I have used.
