Pop up envelopes card


Pretty excited about this card.....big smiles.....all because I did something new for myself this year...yeah...I wanna do a lot of new things this year....for example this is the first time for me to use distress ink hehe! Been wanting to try out this technique for a long time now but never got the "feel" to do so. I just bought the stuff and kept it inside the box and wait for the feeling to play with it to come by me someday. And that feeling came today.... :D I had fun blending the distress ink on the paper using a makeup sponge haha....it was really fun! I didn't buy a blending tool because I thought that perhaps the makeup sponge was good enough for now. 

I also used a wrapping paper for the front design of the card, it's sponsored by Wholeport which I love so much. I think it suits the card really well. Hopefully I can make more ready stock cards of this design :).

The pop up envelopes are the best part of this card for me personally.....because this is also the first time for me to make the paper pop up in the centre like that, from the top till bottom with no cuts at all in between.  I made the envelopes sometime ago using the scoring board.....it was nice to make them....kinda cute cause they are so small in size. When I made them, I didn't have any idea yet what to do with them. I just made them because at the time I just bought a brown paper stock that looked perfect for making envelopes.

You can view how the card pops up at the video below....do check it out :)

I love this card!!! I'm partial to brown, which is one of the reasons, but I also love the mini envelopes inside - so cute to hold little surprise notes!!

I played with distress inks yesterday in a card making class - we used lined art stamps (rubber stamps with some kind of design, rather than a greeting, and where the stamped image is just an outline) and then used a tiny paintbrush dipped in water to pull the ink from the outline into the center, to color in. Looks like watercolor! I'll take some pics and post on my blog soon.

Have fun playing!! :D
