You Can do It Challenge week 4

You Can do It Challenge week 4 : SENTIMENTS only + INSIDE 'lift'....♥

Well folks...I am hosting this week challenge on YCDIC4
and, as such, I requested for the partecipanting peeps to make cards that display sentiment (s) immies...PLUS the inside of the card (s) MUST be finished  too....(not necessarly 'fancy' but certainly a wee bit 'dressed up'...) ♥

 Card #1
Very bright card made with leftover d/p and card stock.
The sentiment is from SU : 'Blossoms Abound' (2006)
Faux diamonelle and primas all from my stash.

All envelopes were obtained by opening up real envelopes as templates.
Traced w/pencil, and hand added few simple punched out details et voila'! ♥

 Card # 2
Front of card above....and INside of card below
I used 'Swirled Frame' embossing folder from Crafty Too,
'Afterthoughts' sentiment ,wild wasabi c/s and d/p from  SU!
The centred frame is multilayered and raised, and mini pearls accessorize each singleblossom

 Made a matching envelope and accessorized it w/ a crunched up flower on the side and a strip of matching pleated  d/p

   Doesn't it look pretty as a set?? I discovered I LOVE making 
 pretty envelopes ...♥

     Card #3
For this last card I used 'Victoria' CB embossing folder, lacey tape,
silk flowers, Bella baubles, Stickles and Spellbinders dies.
Sentiment is from 'Unity Stamp' IB-DD-196.
 The outside of the envelope was vertically partially dry embossed as well 
...and at the back of the envelope I placed a cute die cut butterfly as a finishing touch...

 On this particular envie I added a strip of tape, ready to be used...
..and below there's a shot...

These cards  and matching envelopess  are going also to be entered  for the 100 cards in 100 days projet...txs! ♥
Hope you like these sets! :o) I'd like to make more envies!!...*wink*
Thanks for stopping bye! *hugs and smiles* ♥
