Crimped Envelope Pocket Card


This is so easy! Seal envelope. I stamped mine with Bella Toile in black on a Kraft envelope. Colored in certain areas. Cut about 1 1/4" from the top and used eyelet border punch on this small strip. Run the bottom half of the envelope through the crimper. The top strip piece will fit nicely back over the envelope now.
Also used the 5 petal and Three Flower punches along with the Pretties Kit pearls, Cute and Curly set and matching punch for the sentiment, and black grosgrain ribbon. You can slide a card inside the envelope, I don't have a pic of one quite yet.
