Envelope Card, really?

This week for the 52 week card challenge I'm in we were asked to use a small envelope or a pocket on our card. My first reaction was From Millan.Net!! Then I started to try and figure out what in the world to do. LOL! I found this fabulous card- HERE--and thought about CASE'ing it but then I remembered that I had an envelope punch....somewhere. I searched my room and finally found it! Yay! I punched out my little envelope and then sat and stared at it. Yup, it's an envelope. Now what to do with it!



I don't know where I saw this idea first, as it's not my own, but I remember seeing an envelope with hearts and also one with butterflies coming out of it so I decided that is what I'd try.

I used some scraps of cardstock ,my SU Beautiful Wings Embosslits die and my new SU Cloudy Day Embossing Folder and here's the end result~



I did ink the edges of the envelope slightly so it would stand out a bit from the background. As I was working on this I figured out one source of my inspiration for this card, former Flutter By Team member Tara's card--HERE!



Have a happy day and thanks for stopping by!!

Gorgeous card,Danni. Love the embossing folder, and what a clever idea using the envelope as a nest to fly out of for all the butterflies.
