Easter Blessings Card & Envelope


Here's the other project we did at my Big Shot class this month.  It's a shadow box card with an envelope using the new Card Base Pop 'n Cuts (130099).  I wanted to use the die for something else besides a card base so I ran through a piece of DSP on Big Shot to create a decorative envelope for this card. 

Here are the dimensions and scoring guide for the card and envelope:

Card Base
  • Cut to 3-3/4" x 12"
  • Score at 4", 7-1/2", 8" and 11-1/2"
Envelope
  • Cut to 5" x 12"
  • Score at 3-1/2" and 7-3/4"



Here is the inside of the card.  I stamped the Ears to You bunny image in StazOn White on a piece of Window Sheet.  The oval shape is die cut with one of the Ovals Collection Framelits Dies (129381).
 


I love the new Bitty Butterfly Punch (129406) in the Spring Catalog. It coordinates with the Elegant Butterfly Punch and butterfly images in the Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set.
