I mentioned before that I have a crazy love for office-themed supplies. I mean, in my early teen years, I bought myself a comb binding machine just because I had to have one. I made [and still make] little journals and booklets for myself with that machine. I just love office-y things.
So I guess it's no surprise that I also have a crazy love for envelopes. My envelope collection has taken over a 13" x 13" x 15" cupboard. I really love mini envelopes, so that love combined with office-y love pretty much made me stop breathing when Maya Road came out with those mini kraft [oh, how I love kraft] envelopes -- I'm sure you know which envelopes I'm talking about!
And so, I could not resist this challenge over at Everything But the Kitchen Sink to use an envelope on a project! Here's the card I made:
I used the off-cut from a scalloped border die-cut I made for a different look than what I usually do. It was so much fun to make this! And I really can't get enough of those Maya Road envelopes. Along the right edge of the card, I used a roller stamp from Glitz to add some subtle detail -- they call it a Roller Doodle. How fun is that to say?? :o)
Icing on the cake: this awesome die-cut from K&Co. fits just right in the envelope!
I guess it was meant to be!
I've been waiting to find a stamp that says "Top Secret" -- for now, good ol' alpha stickers will do the trick. :o)
Things I used to make this:
Cardstock from Papertrey, patterned paper from Sassafras, roller stamp from Glitz, watermark ink from Tsukineko, mini envelope from Maya Road, die-cuts from K&Co., stickers from my collection, alpha stickers from Jenni Bowlin, ribbon from Stampin' Up, mini staples and stapler from Tim Holtz, die from Papertrey [Large Scalloped Border]
