Envelope Card and Get Well Card

A card I made for a friend's birthday after watching a video on the Nifty Noodles Crafting Facebook page HERE.

The patterned paper is from a paper pad from The Range.  The card it kept closed with a tiny spider magnet in the bottom right hand corner, which I put under the patterned paper so it wouldn't show.  The sentiment is a stamp from the Stampin' Up 'Painted Glass' set, stamped in navy blue, layered on a teal mat and raised up on foam pads.  I made a tag with two of the dies from the Poppystamps 'Pinpoint Main Street Tags' set and added a Lisa Horton's die cut flower and leaf to the front.  The back of the tag was left plain to write the message.

The right hand flap is attached to the back along the bottom edge so that it creates a pocket for the tag.

I am joining in the following challenges:

 
A second card today,  a Get Well card made a while ago which I forgot to post on my blog.
I used a Lisa Horton 'Blooming Peony' embossing folder with white card.  I used the e/f again with a snippet of pink card over one of the flowers and fussy cut it out around the edge of the flowers and attached it over the original white flower.

I am joining in the following challenges with this card:

    I had thought of your idea in the second card when I used an embossed card in one of my earlier posts. Hugs Mrs A.

  9. I love the papers you have used on the first Liz and such a great shape with the envelope fold and the tag with a pretty added flower in the pocket, to right a message on, and then the beautiful 3D Peony EF with a spotlight effect by overlaying one of the flowers in pink looks fabulous. x

  20. Love the look of this one and what a clever way to hold a tag, the papers and colours are spot on. Everytime I see one of your card I think I must have a go at doing different shapes. Sadly I am still waiting to get round to it, but I thank you for the inspiration anyway xx
