Envelope card



YOu can use this envelope fold card either as a card itself or as a wrap for a small card. It can me embellished as much or as little as you like - I've left the inside of mine blank to add a photo.
For the envelope I used a sheet of paper that is so old it doesn't have a name, designer or anything on it - and I have no idea as to its pedigree or lack of. It's just been hanging around waiting for me to need scrap paper - but it's now become something quite pretty! Anyhow, I digress. The rest of the card is all made using Papermanis products (again - trying to clear some of the desk clutter, and a lot of it is Do Craft stuff - which has got so much better recently). The inner panel is a scrap of designer oriental 12 by 12 paper, the butterfly and flowers are from a PM fabric accessories pack and the centre circle is the PM simply elegant stamp with the 4 hearts which I inked again with a brown whispers brush marker and then cut with my X Cut shape cutter, using the smallest circle template. I used my silent setter to add an eyelet to the top right hand corner of the envelope and knotted a small piece of brown satin ribbon through the eyelet.
