This little duo has a story. I talked to my mom the day I received my package from Greg and Angie, the amazing team behind Concord & 9th. (They were SUPER generous to send each of the Where Creativity Meets C9 design team members a bundle from their brand new release...as in released today!). I was lucky enough to receive the Love Notes Bundle. My package came just a couple days before my card deadline, so I needed an idea quick, and my mom immediately told me a color combo. I'm not sure I've ever done this combo, but it is all colors my mom likes. I do so much better when I create a card for a specific person, so when I sat down to craft, I decided I should use her suggestion and make the card for her. The pineapple comes in because she and my dad are headed to Hawaii tomorrow. :)Love Notes Envelope Dies were designed so that you can create two envelopes from one 8.5x11 sheet of paper. In addition, you can cut four "love notes" from a single piece of 8.5x11 sheet of paper, and they fit perfectly inside the Love Notes Envelope. To make my card, I selectively inked the long "xoxoxo" stamp in Love Notes, so it would fit perfectly on my card. Then I stamped and die cut the darling pineapple from the Pop Art Pineapple. I love it looks in shades of pink, and cannot wait to try out more pineapple colors. I popped the pineapple up and added a gold heart, cut with the little heart included in the Love Notes Envelope dies. Super simple.
Love Notes Envelope Dies. There are lots of things in place to help you be successful. All you have to do is cut an 4x11 sheet of paper. The tabs on the sides of the die line up with the edges of the paper to make sure you are cutting straight. There are even little notches on the die to help you line up your cut. I wanted to make a cash envelope closure, and it was super easy to do. You can use the little circle or heart dies in the Love Notes Envelope Dies, but I simplified the process even more by using the a little heart die from the Bags & Tags Dies that already has a hole cut out of the center of the heart. The eyelets fit perfectly in the hole.
Sophisticated Script Bundle to stamp my mom's name, and then I stamped the diagonal stripes from Love Notes across the bottom. Unfortunately there are no pictures of it because shortly after I took these photos, my super cute, super curious 2-year-old got a hold of the envelope and destroyed it. Thankfully these little Love Notes Envelopes are easy to create and I can make another one with the other half of the sheet of paper I used.
I sure hope that you will join us for Where Creativity Meets C9's "Try Something New Challenge". You can use a new product, new technique, new color combo, new sketch, etc. etc. Just be creative and have fun! Oh, and definitely make sure you check out the other designer's projects for Challenge #5. They've got me itching to CASE. :)
