Mini note card with envelope

Wednesday, 25 September 2013

Hello fellow crafters, hope you all are doing great. It's feels so good to be back to the crafting world after a 15 day long holiday. I was away from home for a wedding and family vacation. Had great fun but missed crafting too. :) Now I'm back in action with a 3-by-3 mini note card with envelope for  catchy challenges.

This is the first time I have made a card this small and an envelope too. Must say, I had fun doing it. Personally I loved the idea of mini cards because they look so cute and pass on the message or the sentiment without being too pompous or over-bearing.

Here's what I created:
3" by 3" mini note card with envelope

Materials used: Textured white cardstock-for the card base and the latticework
Pumpkin and green cardstock for the envelope and the sentiment tag
3 mm quilling strips for the leaves
red and white twine.
The white leaves on the envelope are hand-drawn and cut. Sentiment is handwritten.

For making the envelope, I followed a beautifully explained tutorial here.
