Monday’s Technique Lover Challenge was to make a Crimped Envelope card. I couldn’t help myself. I had to use Friends 24-7 again. I just love that set. The Damask stamp from that set isn’t leaving my table anymore.

I started out with a card size Kraft envelope. It was taped together and 1 1/4″ were cut off from the top. White Taffeta ribbon was tied around it.

The sentiment is from Pocket Silhouettes. It was stamped in Black Stazon and punched out with the small oval punch. Next the damask stamp was inked with Always Artichoke, stamped off once and then stamped over the sentiment. I added one line of paper piercing under the sentiment before taping it under the ribbon. A small Pink flower from Flower Fusions Too with a vintage brad in it’s center finishes off the “lid”.

That top was first punched with the Eyelet Border Punch, then sponged with Always Arichoke ink.

The big part of the envelope was stamped with the Friends 24-7 Damask stamp in Artichoke. Then I stamped the background stamp Sanded over the entire envelope with Artichoke. Once that was done I ran the big part through the Crimper.

The bird from Friends 24-7 was stamped in Black Stazon on Shimmery White cardstock.

The chest was colored with Aqua Painter and Pink Pirouette.  The damask stamp was inked with Sahara Sand ink, stamped off once and then stamped over the main image. That was cut out with Oval Nestabilities and layered on a sponged Artichoke Scallop Oval Nestabilities cut out. The edges of the white layer were paper pierced and sponged with Sahara Sand ink. Before taping it to the envelope with dimensionals, I added Dazzling Diamond Glitter with Two Way glue.

Two Fusion Too Flowers were added to the left hand side of the oval. The larger one has a Build a Brad with black cardstock in it’s center, the small one a vintage brad. The swirl was cut out of Artichoke cardstock with the Sizzlits Swirls Scribbles.

I kept the insert for the envelope pretty simple, pretty much like an inside for a card.

I started with a 4″ Always Artichoke square, followed by a 1/4″ smaller piece of Kraft cardstock.

The Shimmery White cardstock strip measures 7/8″ x 3 3/4″ and was stamped with the Damask stamp with second generation Sahara Sand. I t was layered on a bigger strip of Always Artichoke. The bottom of that strip had been punched with the Eyelet Border punch.

The back side of the insert is even simpler then the front. I just layered it with a 3 3/4″ square of Kraft cardstock that had been stamped with the Damask in Versamark.

Have a wonderful day! Hugs and smiles
