Do you remember the notecards that folded into a self envelopes some years ago? They were my favorite type of stationary, so I decided to recreate them!
I started with K & Company's 12 X 12" ancestry.com designer paper. What a beautiful pad of prints! There is not one pattern in the pad that I do not absolutely love!
As you can see in the above photo, the flap flips up...
...with the body of the letter opening at a score at the bottom, flipping down.
Additional vintage touches are distressing, a bit of light Itty Bitty Background stamping in SU Creamy Caramel (difficult to see in the picture) and a flower created from the new May Arts Wide Crochet Lace from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.
I simply threaded a large needle with May Art Ivory thin twine (Stamp Simply Ribbon Store), then threaded it through one edge of the lace, gathering the lace into a flower. After tying off the flower with the long length of twine, I added a button from Michael's (Vintage Findings buttons). I did not trim the length of twine, as it becomes the method of closing the envelope by tying to a brad mounted at the back of the card, securing the flap.
Please take a peek at the rest of the Stamp Simply Design Team creations:
