KL Stampin N Scrappin ...Go Green Challenge!



Good Morning Everyone and Happy Saturday!

I hope your day is off to a great start and full of sunshine. This weeks KL Stampin N' Scrappin Challenge is hosted by our very own Kelly and is a great one....Go Green! Smiley from millan.net Yep, time to put on your thinking caps and get some usage out of the stuff that we put away for a rainy day and so on.



I got the idea for making my "Go Green" card here and after finishing my card, I will definitely be making more of these envelope cards for gifts. My friend, Barb W. sent me some homemade flowers that she made from the pages of old novels and these flowers are so awesome!



Basically, all I did was trim off the top flap of the envelope, folded it in half and then measured card stock and design paper for the base. Here is a picture of the inside of the folder.

There is enough room for small gifts, hot cocoa packets etc. The possibilities are endless!

Be sure to stop by the KL Stampin N' Scrappin Blog for more DT inspiration, the girls really ran wild with their creativity and produced some amazing "Go Green" cards! So put on your thinking caps and get creative! This weeks winner will receive a prize and as always, the top 3 challengers will receive a Top 3 blinkie! I hope you join in on the fun and I can't wait to see your creations! Smiley from millan.net

Card Details
Folder from junk mail envelope, image Stampavie Cuddling, DP from my stash, c/s PTI, inks Copic Markers and Memento Tuxedo Black, flower (a gift), Stickles old ribbon taken from a discarded project and half pearls.


Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!
