A card or two...

I get into a rut sometimes with my cardmaking and scrapbooking...and every once in a while i do something different to jazz it up a bit...i am never that adventurous...but just a little something can make a difference...

So i decided to change up my card making by making non straight edged cards and decorating an envelope...

To do this i grabbed some of the Spellbinders dies that i had and cut out some card...to make these cards, i cut out two of the same size and when sewing the edging i just sewed the two together just along the top....quick and easy.

Here is the first one that i made...

This card is a small one...about 7.5cm by 7.5cm...in size...
For this card i used this October afternoon piece of paper...which is a gorgeous bright colour and really stands out on the white card.

The little butterfly is this Classic Butterfly from Martha Stewart...the sticker is one of my own.

I wanted to add something else special for this card so i used a different envelope...i used these envelopes for this card...


I also wanted to add some extra detail for this card so i decorated the inside of the envelope...very easy to do, just very carefully take it apart ( it does come apart easily)


I then added some pretty things on the front, just to jazz it up a bit..


For the next card come back in a few days!
