BSS MONDAY IDEA - CARD-ALOPE


Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.
Today's idea is a Card-alope, a card and envelope all in one.
The inside card is 41/8 by 5 1/2 inches
I traced an envelope that I took apart for this size card onto a 12x12 piece of paper.
Then cut it out . Using a ruler, score the rectangle in the middle. Fold and crease the flaps with a bone folder. Decorate your inside insert any way you want. Close the card and attach
a matching sticker or make some sort of closure tag and adhere.
Here is the card closed. The Tag was made from a Stamp by Morning Star, which I bought at the Garage Sale at BSS this year.

This is the card-alope opened. I used a stamp by Northwood Rubber Stamps (P8627)
After coloring with Copic Markers, I cut a frame out with a Spellbinders die,
Labels 11 using black card stock.

Used Art Institute glitter on the shoe laces, and Stickles Star Dust on the Stars.
Spiders are punches from Martha Stewart.
These are fun cards to make. Easy too.
Hope you have a chance to try a Card-alope

Thanks for stopping by today.  Hope your Monday is terrific. Until later............
