Envelopes

Supplies used: Pearlescent Swirl Envelopes by Paper Studio, Sizzix 10-Point Star die, Marco's Paper Red, Stickles, Ribbon from HL, plastic bells, SU All Holidays, Hollyberry Red Gold Empossing Powder by Moon Glow, Versamark Ink
This week my Doubledog Dare pal Anne (aka jdmommy) dared our group to come up with a card that had to do with an envelope. Hmmm, envelope. Envelope. All week I thought about how does one incorporate an envelope into a card. It finally dawned on me last night while falling asleep -- duh!! BAGalope!! One of my first-ever projects I learned when I first started stamping. I was so excited about that project, I still have prototypes that I saved from way back then. If you're interested in a pattern, here's the original one I used: Bagalope Instructions . I have since graduated to eyeballing the whole thing and so any imperfections are a result of my lazyness to pull out the pattern again!! I embellished it to make it a holiday gift bag by adding a poinsettia flower, some fab holiday ribbon and some plastic bells (Oh comeon!! Gawdy is totally "in" during the holidays!!).
See all the Doubledog Dare gang's projects here!
