Holiday Treasures cards

{{Wow.. 500 blog posts... where has the time gone?}}

I am having SO much fun with this idea... I am using the Small Open End Envelopes (pg 167 in the Stampin' Up! catalog), tucking in the envelope flap, folding them in 1/2 and then decorating the front and inside to make a cute little 3x3 folded card!

SUPPLIES: I made these samples with the fabulous new Holiday Treasures Designer Series Paper!  I've included my favorite new accessory on some of them - the Filigree Brads (pg 184).. LOVE them! I've also used the Flower brads, die cuts from the Big Shot, the fabulous new Button Bouquet buttons, and wonderful new ribbon!

There is a 3x3 pull out note inside the open end of the envelope (see tab sticking out on the right side)

There is another sample using this folded envelope idea HERE.  I'll be posting another one using Urban Garden DSP later this week.

Patty, this is spectacular. I love it. What a precious little treasure! Fab idea and design is gorgeous. (Besides, I'm drooling over that dp and fidgeting until mine arrives.)...Yummy, TFS!


This is a fabulous idea. Your holiday treasure cards are so pretty. I just love this DP and can't wait to see the others.


This is such a cute idea. Love it. Of course I love everything you do!


Love these cards! I'm going to have to order that paper.

This is one of my favorite new DSP's! Love the cards. I've had some Open ended envelopes for at least a year. Now I know a cute project to do with them. Thanks so much! Kristi Kelly


BEAUTIFUL cards!!!


Oh these are great! I really am loving all the new products you keep showing off!

Oh yum-O! I like these alot! Extra cute if a gift card fits on the tabbed notecard. I really like how you showcased several of the new catty stuff in one project! TFS


Patty these are wonderful! I just got my order today and need to play with all my goodies, including that wonderful paper.

Fantastic idea. The dp is gorgeous. The catalog doesn't do it justice.

Absolutely brilliant! I would have never thought to use the small open end envelopes to make 3x3 cards. I enjoyed chatting with you yesterday as well. I could have talked to you about your classes for hourse :)
