Colorful Cards for the Cutting Cafe with Water Colored Construction Paper Lined Envelopes
Do you know what is deeply satisfying? Pulling out one sheet of pretty colored cardstock and cutting out a card with a matching envelope! The Assorted Card Fold cutting file over at THE CUTTING CAFE comes with a large assortment of adorable cards & matching envelopes. I loaded up my cutter with one sheet of cardstock and resized both the card & envelope on the same page. Then I cut them both out together. Easy peasy!
I then lined each envelope with construction paper that I found at the Restore. I was totally digging the water color like colors so I was glad to pick up a ream for super cheap. It's soft and I think looks really cool as an envelope liner.
I think this bunny card might be my favorite. I had a vintage bunny image I used. The sparkle washi tape & cut grass makes me happy!
Used more washi tape & cut grass on this card. I also layered up the washi. I am totally digging that coffee cup die cut which was a present from Lisa over at Life of a BZscrapper. Had to arrange my mini blooms in a rainbow pattern!
This card I used up a couple of scraps. My cutter had a bit of a scramble due to the paper not being stuck down and the tri-fold card got messed up. I figured I'd just turn it into a single card and use up a few pieces of scrap paper and a die cut. Love it!
Happiest of Wednesdays to you! Or in this neck of the woods, we call it Hump Day as it's in the middle of the week!
