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.
The cat image was fussy-cut from a recycled greeting card. Behind the kitty are some layered doilies from my stash. The thought bubble and sentiment are from MFT Stamps (Cattitude and I Knead You). The heart die-cuts are from MFT Die-namics Heart Border Staggered. I used a 12x12" sheet of patterned paper from my stash to create the envelope. I watched a few video tutorials on YouTube but made my own custom-size envelope to fit the items that went inside. In this case, it held a pocket letter.
Here's the back. I added a butterfly die-cut with some gems at the top. The handmade stamp was received in friend mail. The envelope is held closed with a velcro half-circle so it is reusable.
I would also like to support the following challenges: Cardz TV 71 AG 3/3; Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper October UE; Double D Stripes and Dots (inspired by lower right quadrant of mood board) 1/3; Just Keep on Creating AG UE; Pammie's Inky Pinkies AG 3/3; Penny's Paper-crafty AG 3/3; Tuesday Throwdown Crazy Circles 2/3; Word Art Wednesday AG w Uplifting Sentiment 3/5 wk1
Thank you for looking at my goody envelope! Wishing you a joyful day and Happy Hopping!
