Lots of punched out squares. Guess what they are cut out of? The insides of different envelopes! I bet you never knew the insides of envelopes were so pretty!
The edges of each square in this card were swiped along the side of a little ink pad to give them a shaded edge. Then, glued on dark blue paper, you will never see the little gaps.
Glue all the squares onto a piece of paper then place a template over it, trace and cut out a fancy shape.
The edges of this shape are also shaded giving the card real depth.
Katelyn was our youngest attendee at the craft day. She made some pretty gift tags with the envelope squares.
More squares! This time cut out of christmas wrapping paper.
This time, a gold three was used in the sewing machine to stitch around each edge after they were glued into place.
Hope you feel inspired!
A great card making method for all ages I'd say.
