this weeks' tutorial is how to make a crimped envelope card.
This is a very cute idea, only problem I no longer owned a crimper! I substituted a embossing folder to create a crimped look, you can too, or any style that you like!! Using this easy tutorial with any of your favorite folders will give you a lot of card making looks!
I use the Marks Finest Papers and Stamps set 'Pussy Willow' you can find this set and more here: http://www.marksfinestpapers.com/servlet/StoreFront
I fussy cut the bird and several fronds of the pussy will and used a white pearl nail polish to achieve the feathery look of the bird's breast and pussy willow buds.
On an interesting stash note I used a terrific birch wrapping paper I Picked up at a marshals, $3.99 for a 9ft x 3ft roll! That is a lot of paper for crafting!
The birch paper was already heavy with a nice texture. I adhered it to an envelope using ATG tape and then ran it through my embossing machine.
Here is the inside:
it contains a note card! This would make a great gift card envelope too!
This was a fun tutorial, fast and easy! Give it a try!
