Warm Wishes....

Well, it's been a while! It feels good to be back and have a project to share with my small group of followers :) I am really looking forward to getting back into blogging now that I am feeling much better.

My good friend Jennifer over at Ink N' Scrap Habits challenged me to use a crimper (since both of ours have been collecting dust). So I thought what a perfect idea for a hot cocoa swap I was in. I got the idea from Splitcoast it's called the crimped envelope technique. And since there is a blizzard outside I figured it was perfect timing for something warming. Here is the finished project :

and a view of it closed :

Supplies: image by Stamps N' More- Mocha #9242-I, sentiment by Rubber Stampede, envelope A2 size from Office Depot, Ribbon by Bobbie M. Designs, card stock by Bazzill Bling, Copic markers, Fiskars paper crimper, Nestabilities large oval and scallop oval and labels ten, Momento black ink, Memories artprint brown ink, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists.

ETA: To make the background I used Tim Holtz distressing inks around the edges, I used faded blue jeans and vintage photo. Then to stay with the brown and blue feel I was going with I got out my Tattered Angel Glimmer Mists and sprayed the blue and brown on the envelope. All the inking, and spraying were done before I cut the envelope and ran the bottom portion through the crimper. 

I am in the process of changing my blog look, but for some reason blogger wasn't cooperating tonight. Maybe it's the weather. Hope you enjoyed today's project!

Happy Crafting,
