AECP CAS Lesson # 6
This was the final lesson in this class. I really enjoyed all of the techniques that Jennifer shared. I feel a lot more confident about keeping cards simple and clean...sometimes less really is more!
For this homework, I decided to make an envelope for the last card that I created (for homework # 5). I had a scrap piece of the perfect color green Bazzill cardstock staring me in the face, so I knew I had to use it. Since I started the AECP I have dug threw a lot of my supplies and really used some items that I haven't in a long time. One of the stashes that I dug threw was my paper. Hence, the perfect matching green cardstock.
I was so happy to see Jennifer using the envelope punch board! This a recent addition to my supplies; my husband and daughter got this for me for Christmas. I loooooove it!!! Before this, I used to make them by hand but it took a lot longer.
For the outside packaging, I took a piece of Kraft cardstock (what doesn't look cute wrapped in Kraft paper???) and cut it to 4 1/4 x 11. I dug out an old Fiskars scalloped border punch. I punched the pattern along both the top and bottom of the paper. I then wrapped it around the card and envelope. I punched 2 holes in the back flaps and ran 2 pieces of string around and tied in the front. I took a circle punch and made a 'to/from' tag and then tied this on as well. I love how simple but cute this came out!
Now onto the next class! Thanks so much to Jennifer for all of the techniques demonstrated in this class!
