Party Like A Flamingo Card + Envelope

Exciting news!!
I was accepted to be an ADORNitGirl Ambassador!
If you haven't heard of ADORNit, you can check out their site here.

I received my first box of goodies a couple of days ago, and I couldn't wait another minute to start crafting.

For my first project, I wanted to do a full tutorial so you can see the products, and just how easy it is to make a coordinating card & envelope by hand.

Party Like A Flamingo Card + Envelope

For this set, I used parts of these 5 sheets of paper and washi tape.

With my We R Memory Keepers envelope punch board, I made an envelope that will finish off at 4" x 6".

A few punches, scoring, folding and gluing ... We now have a darling pink polka dot envelope!

I chose the black sheet for the card, cut it 8" x 6", so it would fold down to a 4" x 6" card.

  I added a couple stripes of washi tape to the bottom of the card front, and cut a banner from the pink dot paper.

I cut this You Are Fabulous wording out of the sheet and layered in on top.

For the inside of the card, I cut this journal card out, glued it to the pink dot paper, and then layered that on top of a strip of washi tape.

The focal point of this set, is this saying! I love it!
I splattered some hot pink watercolor on it, and set aside to dry.

Once dry, I cut it down and layered it on the black paper.

Fussy cut a few of the cute flamingos, and attached everything to the front of the envelope.

Only a few minutes later, you have a handmade, one of a kind Card + Envelope!

  1. So pretty. Thanks a ton for the photos. I am also going to host a grand bash for my son’s birthday and it is just not so easy to find the right options as per the budget. I was just wondering if you can share any suggestions for the affordable party venue for this kid friendly bash!
