Envelope Hello...




So, I went a little envelope crazy.  It all goes back to THIS envelope inspired card.
  And then there was THIS one.  And then came the little Simon Says envelope die.  I had several mini envies laying on my desk and then this happened...

Laying out 9 envelopes like this fits perfectly on a 4 1/8" x 4 1/8" card.  When I folded the cards, I closed them with a single glue dot under the flap so they are a little puffy....if that makes sense.  They have a little bit of dimension to them.

I made the middle one out of some Soft Stone striped paper and then added in the cute little hello sentiment from a Simon Says set called Card Exchanging friends.  Super simple!

I hope you are all having a great weekend!  It is busy busy here.  School started.  Yay!  And by the time this posts, the State Fair will be in full swing.  That adds to the busyness around here.  It also means time for a Pronto Pup and a fried snickers.  Yes.  I said fried snickers.  Don't judge.  I eat healthy 98% of the time...then the fair comes.  :)  

Have a great weekend!
