my other spring swap card

By With No Comments

Envelope_alpha_number_doodleThis is my other card for the spring swap using the doodle alphabet & doodle number set.  With this card, I also used one of the doodle flourishes from the Doodle This set.  This is an envelope card, using a medium whisper white envelope.  With the flap of the envelope open, I folded the 2 sides of the envelope to the centre, then brought the flap down.  This creates a pocket that is perfect for holding gift cards!  I adhered this to brilliant blue cardstock.  Rose grosgrain ribbon and a double spiral clip from the hodgepodge hardware keep the flap closed.  The doodles are on gable green cardstock & then mounted onto a brilliant blue piece of cardstock that is 4.25" x 5.5"  Since the envelope flaps open, you don’t have to make a regular folded card!  (although you could if you wanted…might be a bit bulky for mailing, though!).  Little by little, I am adding in other swap cards to the spring mini photo album (link is also at the top right) so be sure to take a peek!  In the meantime, I’ll be prepping for my spring card class and getting my next email newsletter done – please be sure to sign up for the newsletter if you’re not already receiving one (link is at top left).  Looking forward to seeing you soon!
