JUGS66 Birthday


JUGS66 The JUGS challenge this week is to dress up your envie—your envelope! I usually do stamp on the outside of my envelope, but I don’t usually add anything to the inside!  I needed a (belated) birthday card, and I had a scrap of this beautiful Springtime Vintage DP on my desk, so I used it in my creation:


I used the Hostess set, Punch Potpourri, along with the sentiment set Oval All.  The vintage hearts are stamped along the lower part of the card….you might be able to see it better here:


I also stamped the same heart on the front of the envelope; added some glitter and a pearl (which I think gives my bird a rather vacant stare---I may replace that!); and some seam binding and lace layered under the sentiment.  I LOVE Baja Breeze, so it’s no secret that these DPs are my favorite from the batch!  Thanks for looking today!

Love this card. You used so many elements and they all work together so well. Love the baby photos. She is adorable.

Keep posting those adorable baby pictures. That is one really, really cute dolly you have there.

I love this card LeAnn, especially because you coordinated the envelope rather than matching it with the same paper from the card. It makes me think of all the quilts my mom makes!

Oh be still my heart! This is absolutely beautiful, LeAnne! I love the cool blue, elegant look you achieved. The bird on the fronds is a perfect focal point and your envelope turned out lovely!

Cassady is soooo sweet! I LOVE her photos. Her face lights up when she smiles, which always brings a smile to my face ♥
