Envelope designing and give-away

I am taking part in Astrid’s great idea of an ICAD (Index Card A Day aka a Skinny) swap and have made two of them with an envelope holder ready to go out to their recipients (more photos when they have been received). But before I made the envelopes for the swap I thought I would be sensible and design one to make sure they fitted ok.

Still in Finnabair mode I used gesso, inks, tea, stamps, leftover scraps and embellishments.
The front ……
with a small vintage image included.
The back with the flap up and you can see I used paper from a Tim Holtz paper stash so the inside looks good too.
A simple brad and thread closure.
And another little vintage image with lace, frame and collage pieces.

Skinny’s are made 3 x 5 inches and this pocket envelope is 12 x 13 cms.

If anyone would like this little decorated envelope then please leave me a comment and add your link and  I will pick the winner next Monday the 16th September after 12.00 pm. I might even make an ICAD to go in it lol.
Have an inspirational and crafty week.
