PAINTED CHRISTMAS POCKET ENVELOPE
Today I am sharing a pocket envelope I made using the Painted Christmas Suite. It was so easy to make with minimal supplies, cutting & gluing!
The Painted Christmas Suite is one of my favorite suites in the Stampin Up Holiday mini catalog.
The suite is one of the larger ones featured, includes 2 stamp bundles (stamp sets and dies) ribbon, designer series paper and gold holly leaves.
If you remember back a little while back, Stampin Up offered Painted Seasons and Painted Autumn; Painted Christmas is very similar in look.
It's just so pretty and the designer series paper is very subtle to me but really makes an impact.
Below you can see i shaded in the areas that will need to be removed.
Now for the trimming. With the 1/2 score line to the right, you will need to remove the bottom section and top section from the 4 1/2 score line over to the end...refer to the photo below.
Flip over and add adhesive to the 1/2 section, fold in half and adhere that flap 1/2 section
Fold up the bottom section and adhere it down.
On the top flap, this is the 1" section, I used the little slit that is available in the Seasonal Labels dies. It creates a little opening on the DSP, perfect to feed the ribbon through. Load the pocket with a card or treat first. Wrap your ribbon around and thread up from the bottom into the slit. Tie into a bow.
For the greeting, I used Real Red and Basic White cardstock, chose 2 label dies in different size from the Seasonal Labels die set and cut them out. I stamped the greeting from A Christmas to Remember stamp set.
Using the same die set, I cut out different leaves and berries. I used a combo of Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent and Real Red. Layered them around the greeting.
