Just stopping in today to post a card and packaging that I created for this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: How to Package Cards with Oversized Embellishments.
I thought this was a neat challenge, since I usually just put mine in a larger envelope. ;)
For my card, everything I used is Papertrey Ink, except for the patterned paper (which is My Mind's Eye). I stamped the flowers from The Sweet Life onto the diecuts and adhered them to my card using dimensional adhesive on some. I stamped the sentiment from Beautiful Butterflies, which was a little tricky because of the texture of the patterned paper. The twine, buttons and stitching finish it off.
So, because the flowers hangover the edge & the buttons create bulk, I created some packaging for it. Dawn used some glassine bags on her post, but I didn't have any large enough for my card, so I used a paper lunch bag. I sewed it up and then trimmed off the bottom & the top with some pinking shears. I added a some of the same MME patterned paper that was on my card, diecut with the largest Mat Stack 6 die. I added some more Sweet Life stamped diecuts and voilà! Coordinating packaging for my card!
Thanks for looking!
