Young Crafters Unite challenge #2 and Simon Says Stamp Challenge – Halloween/Goth
Young Crafters Unite posted their second challenge, which is to make an envelope that matches your card. I had a lot of fun with this one because I decided to make the card rely on the envelope in order to make sense.
Said another way, you have to read what’s on the envelope first to complete the card’s meaning. Fun, huh?
I’m also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge for the their Halloween/Goth week!
I used a shape cut a few times with my Silhouette as the base of the card. Then I added the colors with distress inks before stamping the images. I’m not sure if you’ll notice in the photo that the cobwebs have little hints of glitter pen to make them appear more like gossamer.
I limited the color palette to add to the stark, creepy effect. I also stamped and inked the flip side of the envelope.
There’s still another couple of days to enter the challenge if you like this idea of embellishing your envelope to match your card. I know I’ll be doing it again!
Wow, this card/ envelope combo is perfect! Great choice of colors, and I love how you created a shaped card for your base. Thanks for joining us at YCU!
