Envelope Shaped Card- Yep you read that right!


I've been dying to share this card with you all.   I made this for my Mom for her birthday.  She loves fall and fall colors.    I wanted to do something different.  I had the idea of spraying mica spray on white cardstock and use that for die cutting.   If you are not familiar with mica sprays... they are BEAUTIFUL.  They blend together really well and have a shine.   It is different than glitter.   I wish the photo was able to show this a bit better.  There is a lot of added texture by using the mica vs regular cardstock. 

I used Envelope of Wonder Starter Die to create the envelope card shape.  Then filled it with leaves.  I used a wax seal to finish off the card (this is my new obsession).  I hope you love this idea.  I think my mom liked her card.  I'm excited to make more of these!
