My newest "new" creation was made using the Enveloper from Crafter's Companion, along with the Ultimate Tool. I made my first "envelobox", which will fit several flat Thank you cards to give as a gift, OR I may just get chunky and make one FAT Thank You card in my box.
I have also rediscovered why I love Tri-fold shutter cards. Their presentation is so very pretty, and they are such a breeze to make with the Ultimate Tool.
I also took a stab at some step-fold cards, and entered a few challenges with them.
p.s. I often start posts before I finish the projects I am writing about. So, I have since made the decision to go with a nice FAT, CHUNKY card to pop into this beautiful Envelobox. I am so proud to say that the box and card were made from leftover papers from my stash. I am on a 12 step program for paperholics and doing very nicely, thank you very much.
The flowers were scooped up in a sting operation at Michael's, where my mission was to find flowers at a reasonable if not ridiculous price, which I did. And I got beautiful glass jars with wood lids that the flowers came in. One was as low as $1.25!!

I colored my bird with Copics: E15,35,71; BG05 & B12, and the Zig Brushable Butter. I used a bit of cream y lace, some tiny adhesive gems, and a bit of Stickles on the branches.
Because the roses were so chunbky, I built up my image and sentiment in layers: there are three layers for the sentiment, and two layers for the image.
Another nice thing about using the Crafter's Companion Ultimate Tool with Enveloper is the tutorial DVD that comes with it. I really needed it this first time making the envelobox for my chunky card. And the scrap pieces of paper went well on my card, inside and out!!
