Today's card is inspired by the Clean & Simple sketch and by the Pals Paper Arts color combo. I really liked the idea of the envelope with something spilling from it. I first started by using the smallest measurement on the Envelope Punch Board, but when I placed it on the card, I found it to be quite big, so I went hunting in my stash for the old plastic envelope templates SU! used to carry years ago. (Back in the days when we didn't have a bunch of toold that cut the envelopes for us and we had to trace and cut them by hand.) I traced the smallest envelope on Soft Sky Core'dinations cardstock and I used the template to create a lining in the same shape out of the Gold Fancy Foil Designer vellum (the heart pattern sheet). A piece of Gold Sequin Trim was added to the bottom of the envelope and I punched out a heart of the gold patterned vellum using the Small Heart punch to add to the trim. The same punch was used to create red hearts out of Real Red Core'dinations cardstock (for texture).
The sentiment comes from the Lots of Thanks stamp set. I thought the "Avalanche of Thanks" was appropriate with the hearts spilling everywhere on the card. I also added a row of pierced holes under the sentiment to finish it off. I rounded out the corners of my piece of Whisper White cardstock using the corner rounder punch from the Envelope Punch Board, and I mounted it on a Whisper White card. I love the tone on tone look, it adds dimension and interest.
