Blog hopping with Graphic 45 and May Arts

Graphic 45 is blog hopping with May Arts this week, March 21 - 25, be sure to stop by both blogs and see some amazing projects and a chance to win an awesome prize package!

My G45 design team box came the other day and it was packed to the rim with new staples, papers, and beautiful May Arts ribbons; it was a little slice of heaven for sure.   My scrappy bff's were were at my house for a scrappy retureat weekend and they all turned green with envy as I removed each item from what seemed like a bottomless box of  goodies!  I immediately zeroed in on the Enchanted Forest collection and all the wonderful new Staples. 

I decided to use a regular sized Policy Envelope and create a cross between a mini and a card t.  It'll be a great mini/card to include with a shower or wedding gift as Enchanted Forest has some great cut-aparts that work great for those kind of occasions.  


The mini  fits nicely inside the Policy Envelope that I embellished with a new Kraft Imagine Tag.  I backed the Imagine cut out with black paper so that the Imagine word would really stand out, and then I used some cut-aparts and patterned paper to embellish the tag.   I added some interest to the cut-aparts by die cutting one of them with a Spellbinders frame.  Finally I added a pretty bow that I tied with May Arts silk  and leaves ribbons and glued the tag to the front of the Policy Envelope. Who wouldn't love to receive a card in such a pretty envelope?



I love the combination of the blue silk ribbon and green leafy vines.  It's just that little touch of "different" that I love.





The card/ mini is just two pieces of  8 3/4" x 6 3/4" black cardstock folded in half to create 4 pages, giving the mini 8 pages counting fronts and backs.  Then I punched two tiny holes in the center, on the fold, and bound the mini together with a 1/4" piece of May Arts silk ribbon.  I put photo mats in the mini as well as tags for journaling.
