I have three little projects for you today and I do hope you like them as I totally loved making them and it just so happens these are the first items made at my new desk.
First up …. Envelope Cards. I saw these a few weeks ago and thought ‘Oh I gotta make some of these’ and they really are so much fund to make.
Here’s my first one which is a 3×3 Envelope card …
This card uses the Petal Parade stamp set and the Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper – earn these for free during Sale-a-bration – you get one Sale-a-bration item for every $90 you order – yep thats reduced from last year!
Now for the open ‘card’ ….
How neat are these cards?? I love them 🙂
Yep I love them so much that I had to make another … this one was way too much fun to make …
The banner on the front simply holds this card closed – too easy! Love that cute floral paper too – again it’s from the Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper and for the inside ….
So so sweet with those little banners from Banner Blast Saleabration Set which coordinates perfectly with the new Banner punch! Oh so cute. This one got the Teen Seal of Approval so it has to be ok right?? I think maybe that Teen and her Teen friends need a little cardy day dont you think? Oh and see the perfectly placed string? That is compliments of my Smokey Slate Stampin’ Write Marker! See .. no strings attached! Ok … so I need another coffee!
These cards will be part of my Stamp Club starting February so if you’d like to join please drop me a message.
Now the next little project I have for you today is a sweet little box of cards – I know this might come as a shock but I think I’m just a little fond of little boxed sets of cards!
Oh look! there’s that patterned paper again! I do have to say I quite love how this one turned out with the belly band and the embellishment on top. It all came together so perfectly.
So what’s inside??
We have three little 3×3 cards with matching envelopes ….
Cute hey? I’ve actually made a few sets of these and I’m off to a local shopping centre today where I’m having my Team Gathering and I actually going to hand some out to random people so if you live in or near Campbelltown you may just run into me …. or me into you – let’s just hope I find the courage to do so!
Now … where to next? It’s time to hop on over to Chloe’s Blog and here’s the entire list just in case there is a link that doesnt work or someone’s post hasnt quite got online in time – there are 25 all up so just keep hopping till you get back to me and you are all good.

I love the idea of the envelope card. Could I possibly get the how to’s on this? Just a cute idea for a class on the envelope board. Thanking you in advance.
Love your envelope cards Leonie and can’t wait to make some!! The colors you have chosen work so well together.
AWESOME Leonie. I haven’t had chance to make these types of cards, but after seeing your gorgeous ones, I really need to give them a try, they are so cute!
The projects look great here but even better in real life. Fabulous job 🙂
Love the little envelope cards – very cute indeed
Lovely projects, I have just received this stamp set and can’t wait to use it – great inspiration.

Lovely Leonie. Love the little envelope cards. I can see that they could become very addictive. Must try them! Love the cute little card set too.
I love your little card sets – these would be great as Hostess thank you gifts. Thanks for sharing this with us 🙂
I’m so pleased that the Petal Parade stamp set will be waiting for me when I get home tomorrow. I’m loving what you’ve done with it. Much get brave enough to follow your example and give out cards to brighten people’s day.
Oooh, I haven’t seen an envelope card before, what a fabulous idea – I think this will be a great project for my Stamp Club girls next week!!!
I haven’t got that Stamp Set yet either, but looks like I will need to get it on my next order 😀
These are just gorgeous Leonie, and I can see from the inside of your first card that I am going to HAVE to get the stamp set to match the DSP! LOL
Just gorgeous projects Leonie and love the petal cards especially!
Wow Leonie! Your cards are just gorgeous, and are now on my “gotta make that” list! TFS xxx
Great projects Leonie. Especially love the little box of cards – good things come in small stampy packages 🙂

Hi Leonie, love your little envelope note card set. Always inspiring. The envelope card is my favourite too!
I love the cards in the envelop. What a great idea.
