Amazed by you: gift card envelope tutorial

 Hello my dear crafty friends!
Irit is here and this is my new small gift card envelope tutorial made for Ann Butler's  blog using Ann Butler's amazing Faux Quilting Stamps (by Unity), her Iridescents paints (ESF) and her Stitches stamps (by Clearsnap).
So here is my tutorial:
1. Arrange a few Stitched Nesting circles dies (Die Versions) over thick white cardstock and die cut them.

2.This is how the negative looks after the die cutting and later I am going to cut it to fit the envelope size.

3. Paint the negative with Ann Butler's Iridescents paints in Lilac, Lip gloss and Ocean Surf. Stamp over the dry painted cardstock  using Ann Butler's Stitches Background Basics Clearsnap stamp and Ranger permanent black ink.

4. Take the die cut circles and stamp over them with Ann Butler's Faux  Quilting stamps by Unity, using VersaMark watermark ink, Clearsnap Balck pigmented ink and heat emboss with black embossing powder. I used 2'' stamps from different sets and you can see the patterns here.

5. And now without any more step by step photos- my final project.
The stamped and heat embossed circles were painted with the same Iridescents colors with the add of yellow Sunshine  paint. Arrange those painted circles inside the painted negative. Cut it to the Kraft envelope size to cover the front. Cut another piece for the sentiment made with stickers.
Add the Makin's Clay fairy that was made with the mold (some Russian company mold , sorry, I can't even spell the  brand name) using Makin's Clay white air dry polymer clay. The fairy was painted with a mix of the same Ann Butler's paints and glued over envelope front.

Cut another piece from the painted cardstock and add as the closure on the envelope back. Add a piece of Velcro to close the envelope.

This technique is great for card making, ATC making and a lot more of easy to make craft projects and I hope you will use it some day.

I enter this piece to some web challenges too:
WOW! Embossing Powders as I used their powders- Anything goes
 More Mixed Media- Anything goes with purple
