The first challenge over at Young Crafter's Unite flew by and we are already on to Challenge Numero Dos! This time around, the goal is to create a card with a coordinating envelope. Would you believe that I've never stamped on an envelope before?! Let me warn you that it will become an addiction. Almost every card I've made since this challenge has had a matching envelope — it's just too cute!
Here is my entry, made using my favorite Hero Arts + Studio Calico collab set.
I plan on giving this card as a gift to my sister (who is probably reading this — if so, pretend to be surprised when you see it again on your birthday!) Since I will be giving this to her in person, I didn't have to worry about having a spot for any addresses, so I decided to add her initials to the center circle using Quinn's ABC's. I colored in the letters using a blending pen to ensure that it would match my inks.
I see a stationary set in the near future using this monograming method. It's cute, personalized and looks handmade, yet professional — perfect.
You have plenty of time to enter the challenge, which you definitely should because our sponsor is none other than the amazing Simon Says Stamp!
Head on over to the Young Crafter's Unite Blog to see all of the beautiful inspiration and get crafting! :-)
