Papertrey Ink Make It Monday #163: Envelope Wraps (Second Post)

I managed to do a second project for this weeks's MIM challenge over at Nichole Heady's blog, (here). Danielle Flanders did a great video, with beautiful envelopes and wraps, and really inspired me to try and make a pretty envelope. While I was at it, I also tried to make a pretty card. Warning: you may need your sunglasses for the rest of this post! (I was feeling in the mood for bright, springtime colours.)


Told you! I know that it's really BRIGHT!!! and flashy, but I kinda like it anyway. I used the PTI Diagonal Stripes Cover Plate to make my BRIGHT!!! Aqua Mist and Harvest Gold striped paper.

This is the actual envelope wrap. I used the PTI Heart Squared stamp set to create a box for an address/address label to be added. I'm very rigid about things like that. Sometimes I wish I wasn't, but there you are.

Here is the BRIGHT!!! card. You can stop laughing right about now.

And the finished card and envelope together. I didn't really stick the wrap completely around the envelope because I haven't decided yet who the lucky person to get this card will be.


Cardstock: PTI Stamper's Select White, Aqua Mist, Harvest Gold

  2. I agree, absolutely stunning card and wrap!! I love the stripes under the cardstock piece!

  3. SO pretty! I love your bright and cheery colors...they were pretty similar to the colors I used too - great minds think alike! :0) I really like how you used the Heart Squared too...I need to think outside the box more and not put certain stamps with just a certain holiday and color! Thank you for the inspiration!! :0)
