I'm a big "clipper."  I like to "clip" ideas out of magazines and copy stuff from websites (Pinterest?).  I saw this really cute card from Card Maker Magazine (from 2006) and wanted to make a similar card.  (like for 6 years...?)

I didn't really want to cut tiny envelopes.  Then I realized I could make my Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge cut them for me!  (Especially great since for my monthly classes I would have to cut 120...or my customers would have to cut their own.)

This is what I came up with.  I love it!

My daughter, who is not as linear as I am, came up with this one and thought it was better:

To make the sentiments, I used the big long stamp on the Stamp of the Month "You Are..." (which is growing on me, by the way).  I stamped it on a 1" strip of paper and just cut the strips into pieces.

To make the corrugated paper I used Kraft paper and a paper crimper.

Very easy with my Cricut and all...  Let me know if you have questions!

Supplies Used:
Card Stock:  Olive, Kraft
Paper Pack:  Stella
Stamp Pad:  Tulip
Stamp Set:  You Are... - only available during the month of April
Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge (Envelope - cut at 1.25")
Embellishments:  Clear Sparkles (colored with Red Sharpie), Just Blooms
Other:  Paper Crimper, Liquid Glass (to adhere the flowers to the envelopes - a little dab 'l do ya! - if you recognize that ad slogan, you are just as old as I am), Puffy Tape (foam mounting tape) to secure the inside of the envelope
