Summer...

Hello!  It's Thursday, and I'm here today with my weekly post for the ScrapTownLady blog.  I have a fun card to share with you today - let's 'roll' right along here...



The hills were just cut, freestyle.  No ryhme or reason.  The first layer was adhered directly to the card front. The next two layers were each adhered with foam, for added dimension.  Sadly, the bike is out of stock, but be sure to check out the store - there are lanterns, birdbaths & birds, etc.  Lots of other options!

One more share for the day - ScrapTownLady now carries the Kreate-a-Lope!  Talk about an easy, fun way to create your envelopes!  You can adjust the envelope opening exactly where you want it, so you have a fun and creative place to display your recipients address, too!  Check it out:

Start by aligning your template where you choose.  I wanted to end up with some lovely flowers on my envie front, so you can see that I placed the opening over the flowered area.

Holding the template firmly in place, begin tearing.

Continue tearing, all the way around each edge.

Now you will place the template on the back side, matching your torn edges.

Place the rectangle template in the center of your first template.

Begin by folding in your side edges.

Next fold up and adhere the bottom edge.

Last, you will apply the Lick and Stick Envelope Glue (sold at ScrapTownLady), let dry, and moisten when ready to seal envelope.

Voila!  Wouldn't this be pretty with one of your handmade cards tucked inside?

Hopefully, you are having a great week!  Mine's been good, so far... I may change my mind after my morning dental appointment today!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you will become a follower over at the ScrapTownLady blog - each day promises lots of inspiration, and we have guest designers every Sunday!

Darling card - I especially love the swooping hills and the bike! I've got a bike like that and just need the wicker basket to make it perfect. I'll just show this card to the hubs so he can see that yes, people DO still use and like those baskets lol. I've got one of those envie templates from years and years ago - isn't it a blast that just tearing and folding creates such cool envelopes? Great step-by-step tut!
