Packaging cards With Oversized Envelopes

This is my take on the 100th Make It Monday Challenge. Check it all out HERE
I decided to put my card into an envelope which was cut out to accomodate the balloons on the bike. I did so by cutting the envelope so the balloons could slide down into the envelope that I attached to the gift bag with super sticky tape. My card is stamped with PTI Everyday Button Bits, Enjoy the Ride and I used the Polka Dot Basics to stamp the dots on the bag. The balloons were made by cutting small circles of PTI wool felt and a small piece of print fabric. I stitched around the outside and then tucking fibre fill into the center and pulling the thread up to form a ball. I attached them to the card with hot glue. I think shank buttons would work good too. I just didn't have any that were suitable so I made them this way. It was a fun challenge!!

  1. What a cute card and a great idea for the clear pocket to store and also decorate the bag! :0)
