Envelope Full of Hugs + Kisses

by Kelly Rasmussen January 02, 2018 19 Comments

Valentine's Day is just around the corner, so today I'm sharing card idea using the Love Note Pair Fancy Dies. The package comes with two envelope dies -- one that makes a regular envelope and one that creates a cute heart scallop like on my card today.

I started out by creating a background with watercolor paints. I used painter's tape to create a thin border around a piece of watercolor paper and adhered it to a hard surface. Then I completely wet the paper and painted the background using various pink and orange paints. Once it was dry, I adhered it to a Black Folded Card

Next, I die cut the envelope from vellum and adhered it to my card base using clear foam tape. Then I die cut some X's and O's from gold paper using the Luggage Tag Alphabet Dies. I think the envelope made from vellum adds a fun touch since you can see what's inside!

I stamped the "sending you hugs" message from the Hello Stamp + Cut set below the envelope and added a few of the small hearts from that same set using Rose Madder ink.

These Love Note Dies make such a cute accent for a card -- I think an envelope filled with confetti for a birthday card would be super fun!

Have a great day!

I love it. The sad part about it I have the envelop die & an envelop maker but didn’t look at using them the way you did. I can’t wait to try it with vellium. Since I worked for the USPS anytime that encourages mail I am on board.
