Our Cuttlebug Challenge blog challenge to you this week is to match your envelope to your art. I have a brief tutorial at the end of the post, but let's look first (feel free to 'oooooo' and 'ahhhh' out loud, okay? Thanks!)
(LFL*, this challenge has you written all over it!)
The top of my envelope slides off. You can see the top of my card peeking out.
My coordinating card and envelope.
I used my Provo Craft Cuttlebug Morroccan Screen embossing folder for my envelope and card base. The decorative papers, dies, and chipboard pieces are...can you guess?...wait for it...yep, BasicGrey. These are from the newly released Origins collection. My two favorite companies together...Provo Craft and BasicGrey. I think Cuttlebug works with everything, but you know how I love BG!
My envelope tutorial:
I used an envelope (4 3/4" x 6 1/2").
1. Lick and seal the envelope. Turn sideways and cut at 1 7/8". I cut a piece of BG 1 7/8" x 4 3/4" to cover one side. I adhered ribbon (by Prima; I found it at Michael's last week.)
2. Cuttlebug emboss the bottom half of the envelope. This shrinks it just a bit so that the top half will slide over it and not buckle.
3. Make a card to coordinate. My card measures 4" x 5". The brown embossed strip on my card is Core'dinations card stock.
*LFL is lovely friend Lauren of ...all the GOOD blog names were taken...
Now it's your turn, but first you may want to check out the inspiration here by our guest designer, Kimber, and my DT sisters :)
