At our STARZ meeting at convention we also had a swap with everyone – 30 of us – so I made this card for my last class and decided to use it as my swap card for the meeting.  envelope-card

This card is made out of a medium envelope.  You seal the envelope shut and then cut off one end – the small piece becomes the lid which I then scalloped the edge on – sponged and tied the ribbon around.  My colors are Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry.  This photo is a bit dark so it looks brighter in person.  The bottom portion becomes a pocket – stamp on it first then run it through the crimper.  This causes it to shrink up just enough that it fits into the lid.  I decorated the front with the butterfly from the Great Friend stamp set.  The grass is from Inspired by Nature.

Then inside my pocket I have a place for a note. envelope-card-open I did punch out a half circle from the top of the pocket so you can easily get out the insert.  This was also decorated with the Great Friend set and the grass.  I sponged all my white edges with the Rich Razzleberry ink.

I hope all the STARZ girls like this swap card.  There should be 30 of us at the meeting so I’ll have their swap cards to share with you after convention.

Happy Stampin’!
