Vintage envelope for all occasions

Hi again!
Today I want to share a quick envelope project in vintage, autumn colors. This can be a perfect gift for someone or just an artistic piece to hide your ATC card or buissnes card:)

To create project like that you will need:
- 657843Sizzix Movers & Shapers L Die - Pocket Envelope
- 657820Sizzix Textured Impressions Embossing Folders 2PK - Psychedelic Dreams Set

- 657177Sizzix Sizzlits Decorative Strip Die - Mini Paper Rosettes (2 Sizes)
- Patterned paper and some ephemera - tickets, cards, stickers
- Distress Ink - Walnut Stain (Tim Holtz - Ranger)
- Baker's Twine, brads, staples
- hot glue gun, crafting glue.

First we cut out the envelope with "Pocket Envelope" die - and fold it in the right places to give it the shape. Then we need to apply the Distress Ink inside of the folder - we want to both sides of the envelope to get inked and embossed!

After embossing we get really cool, clearly visible, textural pattern. Now we ink the edges of the envelope and it is ready for embellishing! I've made some Tim Holtz rosettes in advance and planned to use one of them as a decoration.

Finally - here is the final project on both sides. To embellish it I used some ephemera findings, pins and baker's twine. I hope you will like it!

See you next Friday - and in the meantime take a look at Free Halloween Project Sheets that I made for you  - they are all avalible on website here!
