Go on… Push the Envelope… DARE YOU!

Last week I was like a woman possessed with my Envelope Punch Board – not making envelopes of course – that was way too obvious. Instead, I was seeing just what else I could do with this item besides collecting dust on my shelves, lol!

This is just a few of things created. My sincere apologizes for the poor photography – I’m fighting off the beginnings of the flu I fear so am not firing on all cylinders you might say – hence settings aren’t as wonderful as I’d like!

Push the Envelope CreationsThe 3″x3″ Card Envelope is so quick and easy but why the 1-1/4″ punched hole you ask? For the wine of course! How often have you taken a bottle or two of wine with you to someone’s house butĀ  to wrap or bag the wine would be overkill? Well, this I think is the perfect solution!

Then by simply adding an inch to all the measurements you have the cutest, and once again the easiest, little box to house four 3″x 3″ Gift Cards!

Then whilst working on a 4-1/2″x 6-1/2″ box for some regular-sized cards I stuck the sides down with sticky strip without aligning both sides of the box first. Possibly no one would have noticed but I knew I would so by simply cutting the top off the box, adding some lovely Sweet Sorbet DSP and matching ribbon it was all good. Looking at it now I think a handle would complete it nicely!

Oh Hello all that Glitters!

Oh my, I look at this card now and I feel like that Swedish cook from the Muppet’s who was always saying “layer upon layer upon layer”, or was that an old Australian television commercial I was thinking of? Either way, when I look at this card now all I see are layers!

Whisper White base with a Black layer to border what was onceĀ  a Whisper White pieces of cardstock until I spritzed it with Rich Razzleberry. Isn’t it incredible how it dilutes to a gorgeous soft pink? Onto this I’ve then spritzed some of the Vanilla Shimmer (page 164 – check it out!).

Oh Hello you Primrose Petal Rose you!

Then to these layers I’ve added two different sets of layers. The first being the stamped rose in Primrose Petal from the Oh Hello stamp set which had just the smallest amount of Dazzling Diamonds glued to the petal edges. The edges of the Whisper White cardstock have been inked directly from the sponge pad before being adhered to a border of Basic Gray on top of the Black. Pearl jewels adding a smidge of elegance.

Then to each edge of a strip of Sliver Glimmer Paper (page 156 – my current favorite!) I’ve used Strawberry Slush 3/8″ Ruffle Stretch Trim and a Large Pearl Jewel on either edge. So simple yet effective!

OOh hello you glittery thing!

A very girlie card so perhaps having loads of layers then is apt… perhaps!
