Blog Hop 1 - Card and envelope
I cut a pieces of select vellum to the size of the card and embossed it using the Cuttlebug leafy folder, I then cut around the leaves on the embossed vellum so that the bottom have of the card would be exposed, I outlined the leaves using stickles glitter glue, Once dried I wrapped the vellum over the base card and tied a ribbon through the vellum and from layer of the card this helps to hold the vellum in place.
I used wacky tacky tape to stick the vellum to the card underneath the circles that I added, I then cut out 2 butterflies from the linen vellum and embossed the top one and rubbed over this with a contrasting ink pad so that it coloured the embossed part of the butterfly and then stick the butterfly on top of the circles.
I made a matching envelope from the Linen Vellum, I stamped it using the Spiral Bouquet then used a ribbon slot punch and weaved the ribbon through the bottom triangle of the envelope up towards the middle then punched out one more slot in the top closing flat of the envelope slotted through both ends of the ribbon and tied them into a bow, it is the bow that keeps the envelope closed.
Blog Hop 2 - Once started I just couldn't stop.
I cut out the aperture with the square scallop Nestablities and then embossed around the die, I then used the cuttlebug to emboss the stampers select vellum with the texturised folder and stuck this behind the aperture on the inside of the card.
I punched out ribbon holes around the aperture and weaved the ribbon through the holes and tied it in a bow at the top of the card.
I made the flowers out of the linen vellum by using a flower punch and coloured the flowers with watercolour pens the leaves were also made with a leaf punch, I arranged these on top of the embossed select vellum in the middle of the card.
