Well, I finished my finals yesterday so I finally have some free time.  So, with some of that free time I made a card and coordinating envelope.

The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4."  I used white card stock for the base and then cut a yellow patterned mat at 5 3/8"x4 1/8."

The background label was cut from "Elegant Edges" at 4 1/2."  I embossed the white layer with the Cuttlebug embossing folder, Feather Illusion by Anna Griffin.  The HB is from "Mondo Fonts."  It was cut at 2."  I covered the yellow parts of the letters with glossy accents and the orange parts of the letters with orange peel Sickles.

The sentiment is from Paper Smooches.  It is from the Salutations stamp set.  I stamped it in turquoise gem ink by Tsukineko.  I then finished off the card with some teal enamel dots.

I used a pre-made ivory envelope to create a coordinating envelope for my card.  I cut some strips of teal and orange card stock for the front.  I then used some of the circles that were cut out from the letters to add to the flap.  I also used a piece of leftover yellow patterned card stock to make a liner.

I made this for the following challenges:

Cupcake Inspirations: color combination
