Just Us Girls #73...an envelope/gift box!


Time for a template challenge with Just Us Girls!  This week it's all about how be box up those cards with 3-D embellishments or maybe how we package up a set of custom notecards.  For my card envelope, I have used Kelleigh Ratzlaff's Fat Envies template.


 I also relied heavily on the digital brilliance and generosity of Cathe Holden from Just Something I Made for some lovely vintage postage and office ephemera to collage the front of my Fat Envie.  Plus, a postage meter strip torn from a package I received in the mail today, a ledger paper pinwheel, and label made with Spellbinder heart doily die and a stamp from Stampin Up plus Want2Scrap baby bling in red!
I was able to perfectly fit a strip from a vintage piece of ledger paper in my stash down the side of Kelleigh's Fat Envie template.

The back of this envie is a regular festival of collaged images from Cathe Holden.  I just kept cutting and gluing.

Here is how the envie opens.  I think I actually did the flaps upsidedown!  oops!  But no matter, still 3-dimensional card or long letter with many pages worthy. 

Ready for more inspo from the rest of the Just Us Girls gang?  A special thanks to our guest designer, Lori Kalus, for a fabulous February!  It was so nice to have you as part of our gang!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I love having your company here at Paper Daydream!
