Crimped Envelope Pocket Card

I've been dying to try this technique and just got around to it recently for my SIL's bday. You can find the Crimped Envelope Tutorial here. My parents are going to see them today and this is the perfect card for hand delivery. It was a blast to make. I am really loving the spongy inked look. Oh and the Celebrate stamp was a free stamp I got from That's Jazzy Stamp Dreams. It's a fabulous polymer stamp that inks super clear and crisp. Thanks Sheila, I love it! And that's my new MS lacy border punch I got after feeling down from my dentist appointment on Friday, LOL. Yes, retail therapy is BIG in my life. ;) I also got some glue dots and white CS so I can finally catch up on all my image swaps!!!

And here is the card inside. I love Bettina Buttercream, so cute and so fun to color. I just love all her curls.

Thanks for looking!

I need to try this technique. Your card looks great. The top card of the little girl with the shamrock reminds me of my little girl. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
