CAS-ual Friday (add an envelope)



This week's challenge at the CAS-ual Friday blog is to make a coordinating envelope to match your clean & simple card.



Here's my confession:
I have never made a coordinating envelope before.
*shock*
I know, I know...
I used to be really big into mail art and made many, many stamped envelopes and other mail-able art, but never did I make one to coordinate with my card before now! *chuckle*

I used some new Ippity stamps that I purchased from the lovely and talented Sherri Thompson in her Etsy shop. She is the generous sponsor this week of all the DT gals and also the prize!
This set is called The Simple Things.

I taped down a rectangle nestie, sponged ink inside, removed the nestie and stamped the long stem on top before adding the sentiment. Simple and quick. The envelope liner was made by stamping that same flower head multiple times in monochromatic pinks.

I hope you'll play along with us! 
Just link up your project and coordinating envelope on the CAS-ual Friday blog!
*mwah*
