Angela ( that's me)

Here is my take on the challenge.
Very CAS and again I have used my VERY FAVOURITE Luxe ink pads and with a solid stamp like the Paper Smooches Bold Blooms, they are perfect.


 I have also made a matching envelope which I've tried to go with the soft, pretty love theme I got from the Inspiration challenge.

I usually just get envelopes in packs from Big W or the newsagents but since I've got my envelope maker, I love making envelopes to match my cards!!  And I have an endless supply of cardstock ☺
I have used Basic Grey's magnets instead of adhesive and it is a really nice way to open the card too.
It takes a little bit of practice, but once you get get the hang of it you will always do it that way!





 anyway off to Ann's beautiful blog and see her gorgeous take on this month's challenge.

thanks for popping in  ♥♥♥

Awesome CAS design, those bold flowers were made for the Luxe lol. If I put this much work into an envelope then I wouldn't need to put a card inside, would a post-it note do? LOVE the way it closes with the magnet, that rocks!

Linda said...

Wow card and envelope - both amazing Angela. Gorgeous work!

miss jane said...

These are sooo pretty and that is such a clever idea to use the magnets. Might have to use that one :)

Such a sweet card Angela - those tulips are just right for the colours of the inspiration, and stamped so beautifully with the Luxe inks! Love the sprinkles you added - so CAS. Well done on creating the matching envelope - perfect for that special card, or non-standard size - the recipient gets a double gift! Thanks for the tip re the magnets - I'll try to check that out myself:)

Beautifully simple card and lovely envelope to match.

I love the CAS design of your card Angela, and your envelope is sensational! I don't imagine it would travel too well through the Post(!), but with such a wonderful gift of the card with it's own envelope, you would want to see the look of delight on the recipient's face anyway! It's beautiful!
Cheers!

WOW. Great job on the envelope. The card is beautiful too. I usually pop the card in with the pressie - no envelope. After seeing yours I better lift my game :)

Carolyn said...
