Popping in with another Make it Monday

I have such a fun time watching Papertrey Ink's Make it Mondays. And this week's teacher is one of my favorites, Melissa Phillips at Lilybean Paperie. She is so sweet and her style is a big ol' slice of homespun goodness. MIM #124 is all about embellishing your envelopes which is usually something I forget about. I spend so much time on the card that I usually don't think about dressing up the packaging that I give it in. *Gasp* I know, just keeping it real here. :)

So this was a lot of fun to make. Here is my take on the challenge:

I made my own envelope out of kraft cardstock. I loved the way Melissa used kraft and how the white popped off of it! So I got out my Martha Stewart scorer and made an envelope with it. Easy Peasy.

I stamped the back like I did the front. I made my own envelope tie closure using some buttons and brads.

Here are the other supplies that I used:
Embossing Powder (Zing Red Glitter, Ranger Seafoam White)
Copic Markers
Memento Ink
Distress Ink
Buttons, Twine
Stamps (Strawberry Patch, Postmarks, Mat Stack1, Strawberry Patch Sentiments)

I also made a card to go with the envelope (which is the reverse of my normal process).

Thanks for looking!
