Focus on Envelopes by Anabelle O'Malley

Decorative Envelope by Anabelle O'Malley
Tip:  Adapt this great design in your other holiday or everyday projects!


Tip:   I used an envelope that I already had as a template. I unfolded it, traced it onto the paper and then folded that back up and adhered the edges together.

Company Spotlight on Echo Park by Hilary Kanwischer

Never too early to get started on cards for the holidays, here is a great one from Hilary!

Ho Ho Ho Card by Hilary Kanwischer



1.  Cut, score and fold white cardstock to create a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch standard size card
2.  Next I embossed a piece of white cardstock with a snowflake embossing folder and adhered it to my pre-scored and folded card.
3.  Cut snowflake pattern paper to fit the front, then cut a smaller strip of the red plaid to fit the front and adhere the two together.  Machine stitch the edges if you’d like.
4.  Tie ribbon around the center of the card.
5.  Using a dab of wet glue, glue over the white areas of the snow globe chipboard embellishment and sprinkle with coarse glitter from Martha Stewart and shake off the excess. Then add a small emerald jewel to the bow on the neck of the deer and adhere.  Adhere the entire snow globe to the front of the card using 3-D glue dots or a little hot glue. 
6.  Add sticker bow and a tied white button to the top of the snow globe.  
7.  Adhere chipboard sentiment to bottom of snow globe along with poinsettia sticker. 
8.  Adhere the entire card front to the embossed white card using 3-D glue dots.
