Cat Lovers Hop 10 - Goody Envelope

Hi, everyone!  This is the tenth post of my blog blast of cat-themed projects for the Cat Lovers Hop!  It's the final one for today (I think)!  A special thank you to Janis at Her Peaceful Garden for hosting this wonderful event to celebrate our love of kitties!  The hop runs until tomorrow so there is still time for you to join in the fun!  I'm excited to be joining this hop for the fourth year!  For an update on my husband's health, please see my first post here.


Last spring I was involved in a cat-themed swap, and part of the swap was to make some pretty packaging.  This is one of the envelopes I made to hold some swap items, but in the end I didn't use it.  I still have this envelope in my stash, ready to hold some crafty goodies to send to a friend!


The cat-in-envelope image is a postcard, and the Dream and floral die-cuts are from K and Company.  Behind the kitty is a gold doily from my stash.  I used a 12x12" sheet of patterned paper from my old stash to create the envelope.  I watched a few video tutorials on YouTube but made my own custom-size envelope.  

Here's the back.  The bow punch is from Tim Holtz, and the handmade stamp was received in friend mail. The envelope is held closed with a velcro half-circle.


I would also like to support the following challenges:  Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper October UE; Just Keep on Creating AG UE
