Once the actual envelope was created the decorating part was a piece of cake. At first glance you might think this project is difficult. Not at all. The great thing about being shabby is it has that messy look. I like to call this weathered…. Any way you put it, I like it.
I started by adding layers of Designer Series Paper, lace, then more DSP. You can see I have a few layers of Washi Tape too. I like the image stamped on the Label Framelit as it really pops up.
The doily was sponged, then sponged more and then lightly coated with a shimmer mist. The entire front is shimmered with two different types. I love my shimmer paints and mists. The last piece was the Bakers Twine on the arrow clip. I love these clips as they add so much character to a card.
Remember, not all buttons have to be threaded. A naked button is totally okay. You can see my "ink splatters" on the base of the card. I used Whisper White ink and my Splatter image from the March Paper Pumpkin. I love this image. It sits on my desk for easy access.
Overall, this project would be perfect to stuff a gift card inside the envelope with a sweet message or I think I could even stuff a few chocolates in it. Hmm!
