Anybody else crazy busy getting ready for the holidays? I am having a hard time believing next week is Christmas!!! Yikes!!! I am not ready!!!
There have been many times when I am making a card it will end up being bigger than any envelope that I own...every have that problem?
Tonight I am sharing a card with a matching envelope that I made. There are a couple of great tutorials on how to make an envelope using your scor-pal. One is on the scor-pal site under the techniques section and the other is on Stamp TV.
All the papers used to make the card and envelope are from my scraps. The DP is scraps from my Basic Grey's Bittersweet pack.
The cold weather that we are experiencing here was inspiration for the matching card. In cold weather I love to curl up on the couch with a good book and a nice cup of hot tea.
I used a few different stamps to create my living room scene. The couch is an Alota stamp that I purchase from Magnolia-licious. The table is from the SU set called Scene in a Garden and the Teapot, cup and cloth is from Gina k's Lovely Shelf stamp set.
The couch, teapot, cup and cloth are paper pieced using the Bittersweet dp. I wanted to create a wood floor for the couch to sit on so ran a piece of the brown bittersweet dp through the distressed lines cuttlebug folder. I added another piece of bittersweet dp above the "floor" for the wall and separated them with a dark brown piece of ribbon to look like the baseboard of the floor.
I store my couch stamp with my Magnolia stamps and when I was digging it out for this card, I realized that I have sorely neglected my magnolia stamps! Can you imagine?! My more little Tilda's! They are now sitting on my table waiting to be inked up. Now I just need life to settle down so I can give them some love!
Thank you for visiting me tonight!
