Here is an envelope I made for a friend's 60th birthday card. The envelope itself is made from a sheet of scrap book paper. The card was oversize so I had to fold it on an angle.
I decorated it with words applicable to my friend, which I cut out from old magazines. I kept going until I ran out of space. This was just plain fun. :)
And the card below - a photo on card stock of a piece of textile art I created a few years ago.
