Ellie's Card!

This is a card I made for my niece Ellie who will be 18 very soon!
The first photo shows the 'envelope' which hold the 3.5 inch card.
The idea for this card came from the promotional folder for a new range of Sheridan Bedding!!
The second picture gives a better idea how the 'envelope' folds around the enclosed card.  One of the tabs has a split in it that the opposite tab slips into.
The envelope:
I used a double sided paper by Kaisercraft. 
The Scalloped circle is punched out using a Nestie and SU Tangerine Tango with Barely Banana punched in a plain circle. Ellie's name was computer generated and I tied a bow beneath this.
The lemon flower is attached above two punched Paper Shaper flourishes and the centre of the flower is decorated with an antique spacer and a gem. A small antique key is also attached a this point.
The Card:
Using a scalloped Nestability I punched out a card shape in soft blue craft card, then layered this with Barely Banana and the Kaisercraft DP.  The stamped shoe is from All Night Media and is stamped onto cream card in Memento Tuxedo Black, clear embossed then coloured with Copics. One small gem as a centre for the flower on the shoe and three larger to add to the looped knot to finish the card of.  The inside of Elie's card is stamped with a small heart shape using VersaMark.
I made a second one for Walshie's Birthday which is coming up will try and post the pics below.
Hope you like these cards..........
