January Papertrey Bloghop!



Welcome to the January Bloghop! This month we're meant to create a TOTAL PACKAGE - outside, inside and envies.........so here goes....... :0)

Don't you find the Papertrey DT blogs super-inspiring??? I would never have thought to combine Pure Poppy and Berry Sorbet - but Dawn McVey did - so I tried ...... and I LOVE IT!!



Then I added a bit of love to the inside of the card - keeping the vintage text paper, stiching, leaves and flowers for continuity. I did not add a sentiment inside the card - I so much prefer to write my own thoughts :0) but I did add a piece of white cardstock to write on......



On the back of the card, I added a watermark - with the flower image and a 'made for you' sentiment.....




I then took some inspiration from Nichole Heady - and used a glassine bag for my envelope - and used a dash of inspiration from Betsy Veldman - sewing the sides to customise it to my card size.......




I used a Spellbinders tag die to create the label, an EK Success punch for the flower and stamped another leaf image over the name to keep the theme going......

Next a little inspiration from Michelle Wooderson - a Doo-Dad for the envie closure :0)



Materials: - Papertrey Ink except Vintage paper, Spellbinders Tag Die, EK Success Punch, Versamark Ink

So there it is :0)

I have tried to keep this relatively brief because I know that you have PLACES TO GO and THINGS TO DO!!! Enjoy the Hop and all of the lovely inspiration out there!

Thanks for taking the time to stop by!

P.S. - Love the Anniversary stamps Beth - Thank you!!
