Pretty Envelope

Hello friends
Oh look I spy another butterfly today! 
Again using the beautiful Butterfly Corner die template ...adore butterflies!
The very pretty embossing is Splendid M-Bossabilities  folder. 
It is created from a length of cream cardstock, I cut/embossed the butterfly corner first,
inserted the remaining cardstock into the M-Bossabilities folder with the 'corner' protruding.
I then inserted a panel of coloured paper under the flap and tied around with twine.
My plan was to create a matching card..but time just slipped away from me. 
Take care friends - I'm due home tomorrow evening in time to get to London job for
Thursday and Friday...I'm never bored!

Hi Christine, such a lovely envelope! Looked out for you at Stitches yesterday, but sadly didn't get to meet! Ken was a big hit demoing the ice resin though! Carole Z X

Hi Christine. That butterfly corner die is just calling out to me "buy me, buy me" It's going top of my want list. Hopefully you'll be able to relax a bit at the weekend.

Morning Christine

I loved this envelope when you showed it on C&C, it looks even better close up! I'm loving the die too.

Hope you're having a great time at Stitches. I'm guessing it may be good that it's a trade show where you can't buy anything, as I imagine your travel bag could be full of new goodies! I bet one of your lovely note books is getting full of ideas!

Enjoy your day there today.

Pretty envelope, Christine, but could equally be a card if you stood it up the other and added a sentiment. Hope you aren't worn out at Birmingham.
