Shabby Envelope

I have been so busy this week with work and my volunteer work that I haven't had time to make a card. But I wanted to give you something to look at so I am posting a card that I made about four months ago. It is actually the second collage card I ever made and it is still one of my favorites. The entire card is mounted on a shell of Whisper White, the next layer up being Close to Cocoa and the top layer of the base is Creamy Caramel. The edges of the layers are distressed and sponged. I created the envelope out of a piece of Creative Memories paper and stitched it.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Days Gone By, Gentler Times,Verve Visual
Paper: Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip for the base, envelope is constructed from Creative Memories paper
Ink: Creamy Caramel, Versamark for embossing
Accessories: Gold EP, SU ribbon, a piece of gold net ribbon from my stash, SU button, the small flowers were embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and punched out with a Creative Memories punch and the brads are SU, Cuttlebug and Vintage die, machine stitching, random silk flower

Thank you for visiting my blog. I'd love to hear what you think of my card so I hope you will leave me a comment. Have a great weekend and stay warm!
