The Enveloper

I couldn't wait to share this project with you too. I love making cards that are different sizes... and rarely have the correct envelope to use with them. In fact, I almost never have square envelopes in the house.

The Enveloper by Crafter's Companion is wonderful. If you are interested in how this product works, I highly recommend viewing the tutorial videos on the Crafter's Companion website --- HERE. They were actually the reason I knew I was going to buy them. Very concise and detailed... and I know many of us crafters are visual learners, so this was just ideal for me.

Birthday Wishes - Gift card:


I was inspired by Ellen Hutson and Sharon Harnist in their Inchies artwork to make a card with one. I also loved the idea of using a magnet to adhere it to the card so the Inchie is a removable feature.


Because the card is fairly thick with all the details, I created a custom envelope (pictured beside my card) using the Enveloper. In fact, it's an envelobox (a 3-D envelope) that gives me plenty of space to accommodate all my embellishments.

Here's my card with the inchie removed: TO BE PUBLISHED

Thanks for stopping by,
Lise

  5. Lisa,I love this card. It is just beautiful. I really like the mix of the clean Asian influenced branch on the rectangle and the square and then the soft appearance of the scalloped and pierced white layer. Beautiful! I am sad to say that I bought the enveloper moons ago and it sits still in it's wrapper. I must take it out and give it a go!
