Speedy Fox & Friends Blog Challenge~~Make an Envelope Card

The challenge this week for Speedy Fox & Friends is to make an envelope card. OK, I don't know where I've been, but I had never heard of an envelope card.  But now that I've done one, it could get addictive!!!!    My colors in the photos didn't come out very well.  They're very pretty pinks and reds and the cards are very addictive to make!!!  I can't wait to make more!  I used the stamp set "Love Love Love" by Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co.

Here's a video tutorial I made on how to make this style of envelope card

Details for the card in the photo:

Stamps:  Love Love Love
Paper:  Markie's Strawberry Milk by MFP, Studio G DP
Ink:  Melon Mambo
Misc:  ribbon, heart punch

Details for the cards in the video:

Stamps:  I Need a Vacation
Paper:  ColorBok Designer Paper
Ink:  Momento Tuxedo Black
Misc:  ribbon, Spectrum Noir Pens

I hope you'll join us for this fun challenge this week!

Happy Stamping!
Patty & Winnie

thanks!! I make one using 10 inches...but I think this paper was still a bit thick...will redo it. (Should have used a junkier patterned paper to practice! I ruined this pretty chevron paper!)
