You heard me correctly - every stop on the hop has PRIZES! It's our way of saying thanks! I have a great prize package of goodies to give away to one lucky winner (see photo below)! In order to be eligible to win, please leave a comment on this post and tell me your New Year's resolution for crafting and creativity! I will draw the winner on Wednesday January 4th and notify you via email. What projects are you going to work on in 2017? Maybe a new technique? New style? Favorite new supplies?
My project to share with you today is a sweet little package of love notes I made with the brand new Lawn Fawn Heart Envelope Die! LOVE! Swooooon! It's a big heart die that folds into an envelope. The finished size is perfect to hold a sweet note and/or a gift card! I made some notes for my friends out of beautiful patterned papers. Then I added accents with pretty stamps from Altenew.
I used the Altenew Calligraphy Alpha to spell out the names of my friends. The way the stamps are designed, they line up perfectly and hook together to mimic hand lettering! I used ink shades in pink, brown and green to match the papers and give a vintage feeling.
Here is the envelope when it is opened up - a BIG HEART! I adhered my notes inside on some cream paper and used more Altenew Stamps. The stamp set is called Hello Sunshine! I love how the double sided paper makes the envelopes just as pretty on the inside as the outside.
I used the SSS Stitched Ovals dies to die cut seals for the back of the envelopes. I stamped on them to make them extra pretty. They are attached with foam tape for a bit of dimension.
The Heart Envelope Die comes with add on pieces - a heart, some word dies, and this perfectly sized scalloped label piece. SO elegant!!
Here are the envelopes cut out, and before I folded them. I used a bone folder tool to get nice crisp edges. The die automatically scores where you need to fold - so no guesswork!
Be sure to hook up with me on social media - all the links are in my left sidebar! And, I would love to have you as an email subscriber too - just put your email in the box under my photo. Oh, and I AM ADDICTED to Instagram! I would be happy to share with you there! Thank you for coming by today. Enjoy the hop! HAPPY 2017!
