Faux Envelope Cards Revisited ;)

Posted by Maja Nowak

Good morning, Maja fans, welcome to the blog today 🙂

While visiting some craft company blogs I sometimes come across this “revisiting” idea. DT members return to old collections and make new projects with them. And so I decided to use the concept, and “revisit” one of my older projects: faux envelope cards. I also did a tutorial on them back in June (you can find it here). I also used the same collection, my favourite Vintage Romance 🙂


I think this is just a perfect collection for wedding cards! The first card is more vintage in style, and I kept the ivory-green colour palette, as if the colours faded with time 🙂


I didn’t use any sentiment, the image is pretty clear 🙂 I added a bouquet of roses and some pretty crystal flourishes:


Beautiful pearl brads and vintage seam ribbon complete the look:


The second card is more colourful as I followed the palette of the printed flowers:


The design is pretty much the same, only instead of an image I added a decorative chipboard sentiment:


I just love how the printed flowers blend with the dimensional ones!


And here are the supplies I used:

Other: flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; die: Magnolia; chipboard: Scrapiniec; brads: Craftmania; bling: Prima.


And how about you? Do you sometimes “revisit” your previous projects and give them a go again? 🙂

  • Oh my I just LOVE these, soooooooooo sooo beautiful work here once again Maja. Love how you made them sooo different, even they´re made exactly the same, and I can´t even say one is more beautiful than the other, cause they´re both soooo gorgeous in different ways, and I really do like both.
    And yes I have often gone back to an old one again and made it once more with different papers or looks, and that´s always sooo cool, if you have succes with it once again. And even moreif it´s one, that was maybe not too succesfull the first time, and it is second time, then it feels really good, I think.
