My Creative Time ~ August Stamp Release Sneak #4!

Hi Everyone!  I just can't believe today is the last day of My Creative Time's sneak peeks!  This week has just blown by, with all the creativity that the whole team his shown!  I hope you enjoyed all the projects as much as I have!!!

Today I get to share with you the 3x3 fancy tri-fold card & 3x3 fancy envelope die.  These are just fabulous as they are, but of course I just can't leave well enough alone!  :)  So I decided to make the envelope into a small little treat box!  Just by adding a score line on each of the tabs about 1/4 inch from the original score line on the die.  Easy Peasy!!!

To create the window, I first die cut the envelope, then placed the frame die where I wanted the window!  Since I used two sided pattern paper, I turned over the cut part and attached it to the card!  Waste not want not!!!


Next I cut burlap with the heart die from the 100% Sweetness Set, you can even see some of the stitching lines in the burlap!  I also used the leaf dies from Piles of Smiles for added embellishment!


Added some kraft seam binding ribbon and pearl from my Boutique.  Then topped off the card with a tiny paper clip!  How cute is that.




recipe:
paper: Papertrey Ink, My Minds Eye
ink, Tim Holtz paper clip

Beautiful! I love your card and how you cut the window out of the envelope. Did you have to do anything to the burlap to keep it in tact while/after you cut it?

Thanks so much for sharing!

yay Nancy! I'm glad you're happy with it!!!

liz at liz's paper loft said...

No, the 2 1/2 burlap I used from my boutique has a slight stiffness to it, so it just stayed together. Thank you for asking!
