Use an envelope!

Hi there!  Absolutely LOVED this challenge given by the sweet Val on the Stampotique dt.
She says...
"I love the idea of using every day objects for art." This week, try creating an art project that incorporates an envelope - any shape or size, new or used. Just flip, fold, score, tear, ink, paint, stamp, doodle, embellish or keep it clean and simple - just have fun!

A while back I saw a very cool utube on how to make a mini envelope book here....  
I am crazy about envelopes so I put this together:  (inside)
If you watch the video it is so darn easy and cute! Loved putting all the ephemra inside :)
Finally the cover..ofcourse the sentiment had to keep with the theme :)..

I used "cousin Carmie" on the front on a piece of old BG dp along with some stickers, vintage color inks, a tag and a TH die cut flower that I embossed and distressed with an vintage button in the center.  Thanks for looking and I hope you will join in- who doesnt love an envelope challenge?

This is just brilliant, Jane! Just watched the tutorial. You're right, simple but such fun! Can't wait to make one as a birthday "card" for one of my nephews!
