I saw it on Pinterest.
That is becoming a common thread these day. I know it is true for me, especially when I am talking to any of my 3 daughters. We are avid Pinterest people - even more so now with a wedding to plan!
I personally love Pinterest because I can go there to be inspired and/or keep track of my stamping inspiration. I highly recommend it - more on that later.
One of the ideas I found on Pinterest was to turn a paper heart into an envelope. So I did!
This is the card I made using the Sale-a-bration designer paper, Everyday Enchantment. I also included the stamped sentiment from the Sale-a-bration stamp set, Outlined Occasions. The envelope is actually one of the hearts from the new Hearts Framelits Collection.
In case you are wondering, I lined the envelope with a second piece of Everyday Enchantment dsp because I wanted a minimal amount colors on my card. Once I cut the hearts by using the Hearts Framelits, I made the envelope and then added some ribbon and a Brad from the Sale-a-bration Ribbon and Brad Pack.
The Everyday Enchantment is my favorite Sale-a-bration product! The colors and patterns are just beautiful. I had alot of fun making this "heart envelope". Give it a try!
The original directions that I used are found Here.
1. Use the Big Shot and Hearts Framelits to cut a heart from dsp. I used the largest heart which is not the one I show here.
2. Fold the heart on each side as shown.
3. Fold the bottom part of the heart up.
4. Go back to step 2 and add adhesive under and on each side flap. Then fold the bottom up again.
5. If you are going to make into an actual envelope you would fold the top flap down. I skipped that part.
The joy of using the Hearts Framelits is the number of different sizes - 6 in all - so you could make a tiny envelope all the way up to the size of the one on my card.
