Love Note

I wanted to try some different embellishments for this card, so I figured I should make use of the cute Maya Road envelopes I bought a few months ago.

I started by coloring the sweet fairy from Some Odd Girl's Pixie Dust stamp set. I wanted to make her look very cheerful, so I chose to go with mainly yellow. Yellow is such a happy color. Her wings are green and blue to add a bit of contrast.

After matting a piece of striped paper to some mint cardstock, I tied hemp cord around the bottom and added a blue button. I glued it to the base with tape runner adhesive.

I stamped a sentiment on a piece of 2x2 white cardstock, and tucked it in the envelope. Then, I attached the fairy to the envelope with a bit of adhesive. Lastly, I put foam squares on the back of the fairy and the envelope and attached it to the card.

Overall, it was a pretty simple card, but I really like how it turned out.

  1. You bring every character you create to life with your colouring. The yellow is a perfect choice for this little pixie. She's beautiful! Love your use of the envelope too - so clever!

    1. Thank you, Kylie! I've been eying my ever-growing stash of craft supplies lately and I really want to make an effort to actually use everything I've bought. I've noticed that I bought a lot of pretty and cute things, but I felt bad about using them -- which is kind of silly, since I didn't just buy them to look at them.

  2. Soooo cute! And your colouring is gorgeous! Love the envelop idea! Will maybe even borough this idea ;)

    1. Oh, for sure go for it! Miniature envelopes are soooooo cute, and it's hard to resist buying them. Might as well make use of it. :D
