My Cards and Tags: Paper Scrap Cards and Envelopes

"Transport It" is this week's theme at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog.  I decided to make some paper scrap cards and some envelopes to transport them in.

I started with the envelopes.  I used a Simon Says Stamp Gift Card Envelope die and cut the shapes out of Strathmore Mixed Media paper.  I spritzed them with Distress Ink spray and then added some white paint through a falling snow stencil.

Next I tore some scraps of Stamperia Wonderland paper and glued the scraps to the envelopes.  I added some dark shades of paint.

While those dried, I started working on the cards.  I started with random scraps of patterned paper.

I layered the scraps onto Strathmore Mixed Media paper and sewed them on with a sewing machine.  I did some freestyle sewing to form some wonky oval shapes.

I added acrylic paint to my cards and added some stamped-text paper to the center of the ovals.

To finish my envelopes, I sewed together some mini-piles of paper scraps and glued them to the front.

I flicked some Teakwood alcohol ink onto my envelopes, then typed some words on my We R Memory Keepers typewriter and added those to the front of the envelopes.  I folded and glued the envelopes shut and cut off the curved tabs at the top so they were rectangular in shape.

I put my cards and envelopes together and this project was done!

Here are the supplies I used that you can find at Simon Says Stamp:
