Sparkling Poinsettia Envelope-HeartfeltCreations

Welcome back for another day of Inspiration from the Heartfelt Creations Team.  Months ago i shared an altered envelope using the Everyday Heros Collection, today i wanted to share with you a new envelope using the 



i had a couple left over card kits from a previous class and thought this particular card fit perfectly on this envelope, so i designed the entire project around the card.   I then cut a few card panels in half and distressed them and used them for added layers 


The kraft envelope from Hobby Lobby measures 6x9 and looks like this before i got my hands on it (wink)

fabulous altered project to display in your home during the holiday season. TO give the envelope added stability i backed it with chipboard :D



Wishing you a Happy Scrappy Day!
