All Eyes On... ENVELOPES!

The lovely and talented folks from Wplus9 have, yet, another technique-rich endeavor to share with you.....





Yes, friends - it's the unofficial GREETING of the greeting card -
we're talking about ENVELOPES!


The outside...






This inside....




The other outside...





And the inside of the INSIDE - the card, itself...!








Oooow, friends - I couldn't help myself! Even though the air was still full of icicles...
It was a downright spring-like day, here at Rancho Durenberger!
My use of this FANTASTIC Wplus9 stamp, needs no further explanation...

{The BIRDS & The BEES - one of my all-time W9 FAVES!}








Look! Cow and HORSES - fraternizing! {Scandalous!}


I hope you'll take the time to go and see what some of the other
stampy gals of Wplus9 did with their use of envelope...

OH, I just LOVE this envie you've created! It's so cheerful, so spring-like and would be such a welcomed piece of mail to receive! I love the inside as much as the outside and I need to decorate the envies as much as the cards!
I love the serene picture you posted and it reminded me instantly of something I saw a few weeks ago while we were on a long drive. We passed a huge farm where the horses were just let into the cow's pasture, and they chased those poor cows to a corner of the field with such a vengeance, then ran back to the entrance as if their day's fun was all done and they wanted to go back into the barn! LOL I chuckled at the sight, so seeing this photo was really amusing to me :) Doncha just love animal nature? :D

Absolute darling card and envelope! Love the stamps, your coloring, the stitching, the "popped" die cuts ... so neat! I tend to go all out to decorate my envelopes. It gives the receiver a preview and brings a smile to those who "handle" the envelope! :)

Rose said...

this is so adorable!!! LOVE it :)

Ann said...

There's a whole lotta cuteness goin' on here! Wowza! Your envie is amazing, & I adore the sun & clouds on your card!

I just found WPlus9 stamps today by seeing a card in the Feb issue of Cards Mag by Heather Pulvirenti...from there I found you - love your card above!!! So adorable and the enevelope is gorgeous front and back! I think I might have to get that stamp set as I adore the clouds and the birds and the whole "spring" feeling! Thanks for your awesome blog! :) Jill - Seattle, WA.
