Vintage Mini Envelopes

Hello friends

I hope you are all enjoying the Easter break,
Spring cleaning is definitely in full swing here - I've been quite ruthless cleaning out
my kitchen cupboards - how on earth did I accumulate 6 frying pans!?

Back to craft...
This card appeared a few days ago on the Spellbinders blog here,
it features the new Mini Envelope Two die - available to pre-order on the website here.

There is also Mini Envelope One and Mini Envelope Three to tempt you!
On the Spellbinders blog there is a tutorial so you can see exactly how
easy it is to make these pretty little envelopes.
I also used Sentiments 5, Sprigs and Bitty Blossoms.
I wanted it to have a pretty vintage look and the Kaisercraft Rustic Harmony papers 
certainly helped.

Other news:

Charity Kits!
There wasn't one in March purely because I got completely side tracked by lots 
of work but plans are definitely underway for an April kit. 
I hope to have more details very soon.

Back to the Spring cleaning...

Take care friends.

Lovely card & the envelope die looks great. The spring cleaning sounds like it's going well, think we need to start that here.

Good morning Christine,
I love the card, and the paper is beautiful. Doesn't it make you feel good when the house has been cleaned and decluttered. I'm going through mine and collecting things that I can boot sale when the weather gets a bit warmer. Enjoy the rest of Easter.

Hi Christine,
This card is lovely, I love those three gorgeous flowers,
The really brighten the whole card!
The background paper is pretty too!
Slow down Christine, I guess you may be a little hyperactive after all of the chocolate but don't exhaust yourself!
I would love one of those cut out cleaners please!
Love and hugs

Sandra said...

Oops I forgot to mention, how kind of you it was to come over a leave such a kind comment on my blog!
You should call in more and enjoy the fun, the ladies call my blog the cafe as they all come to meet up and chat, 'virtually of course' but some great friendships have been formed, this blogging business is such fun, thanks Christine xxxx

Such a sweet card, the little envelope would be great for a gift voucher, or a secret message.
