This was made following the sketch over at Clean and Simple stamping – number 100, well done guys!! Could it get any cleaner or simpler? Forget about 10 minute card, this was barely 2 minutes. Well only because my wonderful hubby was on hand to help me tie the bow! Im ashamed to say I would still pick Velcro shoes over shoe laces any day. I tie my laces in a very strange way, so trust me, you never want to see my bows!!
Ok, deep breath, this is a long post. I recently bought a set of Papermania clear stamps and when removing them from the packaging I quite liked the shape of the paper slip in the package (image below). I had an idea for using the shape, but I could not find any paper I was happy with to go ahead and make it.
So nothing happened with the idea – until I received my Crafty Alley July kit!! This kit is so so yummy, the papers are just delicious. So I took the paper slip shape as my idea and came up with the following:
The lace on the outside holds one of the alterables from the kit. I glimmer misted it in my limited edition lemon grass glimmer mist and coloured in some highlights with my gel pens. The white prima flower was misted in silver.
The large tag is glimmer misted in silver. It has a pocket made from some glimmer misted velum (my work table is quite glimmery at the moment), with a bit of a pattern masked on to it. It also has one of the wonderful chipboard stickers from the kit. Inside this pocket is another smaller tag made from a scrap of the paper. I am also planning on putting a gift card into this little pocket.
For the main envelope I used one of my Tim Holtz dies to fancy it up a bit and also so that the other side of the beautiful paper could be revealed a bit….
