Envelope Cards

Hey Everyone:)

Boy have I been busy. I thought I would have more time to craft with school out, thinking my older ones could help with my littlest, but I have even less time now that school isout. These boys sure keep me crazy.
I just got their report cards and I am so relieved to say that my oldest (Z) passed. By the skin of his teeth but he passed. N passed too. He did real well this year.

We are getting our housed painted too. And it is coming along great. This week I will post some pics:) It is a pretty old house and it really needed it:)

Are there any CNYers out there that follow my blog? I am thinking of having a get together very soon. Like a crop/scrap what ever we wanna call it. Just for fun party. If you wanna shoot me your email here in the comments I will send out info on when. I would really love to meet and hang out with other peeps in my area.

So here is my projects I wanted to share today:) I got the idea for these envelope cards from another Demos Blog. Can not remember her blog addy but when I come across it again I will come edit this post to put the link in. I think her name is Angie (Scrap Chic). Thanks for the great idea Angie:)
I will write a brief recipe on how I did them:)

These are perfect for gift cards and little notes:)

The paper I used came from Stampin up. It is Dusty Durango designer series paper.

The base is cut at 7 5/8 x 4 3/4
Scored at 1 3/8 and 4 1/2

Strip across top is cut at 4 1/2 x 1 1/8

The three layers in front are cut at
3 3/8 x 2
3 1/8 x 1 3/4
2 7/8 1 1/2
When adding these to front use pop up dots only on bottom so you can slide card closed on top.

The inside is an envelope cut and half.
You seal envelope (medium size) and fold in half and cut it down middle.
Then you glue the two parts together to create that accordion look.
And then glue whole piece inside base of card.

I purchased my envelopes medium size from SU.

The butterfly and flower stamp are from SU For All You Do Set.
And the happy birthday is from SU Family Phrases Set.

The ink was SU classic Dusty Durango:)
Thanks for looking:)

I have a couple more projects using the same paper I will post tomorrow:)

As usual I wanted to get a plug in for my message board. It is free and we have a bunch of wonderful ladies. We have scrappers, crafters, readers, and other hobbies. As well as a lot of different mommy areas. If I can get the crafting/cardmaking/scrapbooking sections and other sections busier than they are now I plan on do monthly contests there where peeps can win prizes as well as the fun I already do on my blog.
It would truly delight me and make my day to have you all on the boards.

Oh and I have lost one pounds! Between the Zumba, Treadmill, and Ab Glider Pro I am finally starting to see results! I know only one pound. But I am syched. Now to keep it up and learn how to tone up.
It isnt gonna be easy now that school is out and the boys will be home eating all the time in front of me. So hopefully I dont lose my will power as they tease me with thier yummy treats:)

Now onto my project for the day. I used my cricut imagine and the Imagine More Cards Cartridge. The sentiment is one of MPS's fun stamps. I did two and dressed them up a little different. One with just ribbon and the other with twine and a button:)

I want to add a special Thanks To Crafting Katie For helping me see the potential in this cartridge:)

I'm entering this in the 'Made It Myself Mondays' weekly linking party on You Had Me At Craft, so you should do the same with your projects this week!
