Last month, our youngest son's friend tied the knot with his high school sweetheart. Oh my, are they at that age already???? Yikes.
When I first set eyes on this wedding image by Sister Stamps, I knew it was a must-have. I love white-on-white cards and thought it would be perfect for this special occasion. The details may be a bit hard to see but if you click on the pix to enlarge it, it'll be easier to see.
Here's a close-up of the sakura flowers by Wild Orchid Crafts and buds by All Natural Accents....
Some of the cards I make have flowers and embellies so a box-type envelope was definitely in order but I never looked into purchasing one. THEN at a recent rummage sale, I spotted this "Envelobox by Crafter's Companion that was placed in a Ziploc bag. Ohh, I felt like I discovered gold and grabbed it QUICK. Guess how much I paid for this???? Just 3 bucks. Woo-hoo, what a steal of a deal.....cha-ching$$$$$. Well, I was so eager to try it out but holy cow, I read the instructions over and over and over, and tried to make an envelope several times to no avail. Then the light bulb went on. I checked YouTube and THANK GOODNESS I found a tutorial. It was soooo EASY-PEASY. YAY!!!!
Here's the envelobox I made for the wedding card. I also used the "Fancy Tags Two" die by Spellbinder.
