I am loving the little slim card size you can create for the new Money Envelope – I made my card approx. 3 1/8 x 6 1/4 inches.
I started by creating the envelope. I cut the main envelope piece and two of the back “flaps” from white cardstock.
On the main piece, I used the lace edge from Doily Lace on each of the small end flaps and ink blended some light green clouds on the front of it, making sure to leave more white space in the middle for the name of recipient.
For the back flaps, I ink blended them using the same light green ink as the clouds.
When all the pieces were dry, I glued together the envelope, leaving one of the lace ends open to put the card in.
I cut white cardstock to 6 1/4 x 6 1/4 inches and folded in down the middle to create a side fold card base. For the cloud layer on my card I cut a piece of white cardstock to 2 3/4 x 5 7/8 inches, then ink blended a cloud background on it, much like the one on the envelope, then glued it on the card.
I stamped and colored in the adorable images from Up With Love, then cut them out using the matching dies – SO cute!
To give the cloud background a softer look behind the bunny and frame it, I cut out the Doily Lace rectangle from vellum, then used foam squares to attach the bunny to it, using the bunny to hide the glue when I added the vellum piece to the card. I also used the balloons to hide some extra glue behind.
I cut out the Love Ya Script sentiment from some rose gold cardstock and glued it to the card, making sure to add a tiny bit of glue behind the vellum piece to help keep it closer to the card.
