Make it Monday 100

Hi.  I am back from a long hiatus and decided to play along with Papertrey Ink's 100th Make it Monday video.  Our challenge is to create packaging for cards with over sized embellishment.

Typically, when I make an over sized card it is going to be hand delivered so the packaging doesn't need to meet postal guidelines.   I call the envelope I use the most a slide pouch.  It is quick and easy to make.

I take 6x12 piece of cardstock and score it at 3.5 and 8.5.  After it's scored I cut a half circle somewhere between the two score line.  Next I score tape one end closed and then fold the scored lines and adhere them in the back. I like to wrap a different color band around the middle and decorate it to coordinate with the card.

For the card, I used my daughter's idea of punching out the butterfly trail and backing it with a different color to coordinate with the washi tape.

Thanks for stopping by ~
