Wedding Season – this is one more feature for the summer.

Normally it means more wedding cards I create during this period. And if someone asks me to make a card for a wedding, they want something that can be more than a congratulations card. So creating a envelope for a gift card or money is an option.


I guess that Sofiero collection along with Monochromes is perfect combo.


These soft shabby colors can bring a delicate feeling


I am keeping doing several cards at once, using the same elements and just mixing the colors


What I tried new  – is taking the flowers from different packs, no matter how they suit, but leading them in a cheerful composition. Didn’t want to keep the white boring dominance.


It was really easy to do, as the candy pallet of Sofiero collection brings the choice for a variety.


And I have to admit that fabric tulle and organza flowers work really great there.


as well as the classic frame dies


Some finishing touches of pearls and rhinestones, and you are finished with a trio of nice cards.


Supplies used:

Spellbinders Dies

Prima Marketing flowers and Rhinestones

Hello dear friends! Evgenia Petzer with you today and I wanted to show you the envelope that I made for a masculine type of present. You can always put there either the gift card or some money.


when it comes to the decoration of the masculine works, I always look for the chipboard, some meat embellishments, die cuts using either kraft or black yardstick. I love to add some black splashes to the cards.

Again, Nyhavn personally for me is a collection with a masculine touch, what do you associate it with?

Have a lovely weekend,

Faux Envelope Cards Revisited ;)

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? 🙂

Hello dear friends, Evgenia Petzer here with you today and I wanted to share with you two beautiful envelopes in which you can gift either money or a gift card. Our-days these type or presents seem to be more appropriate in some occasions. But its always nice to present something beautifully.
