Cuttlebug Mania Envelope on a Card Challenge

This is my second post for the day, so be sure to continue reading the next post for the Top Tip Tuesday Challenge.

Hello and welcome here!  We've seemed to have jumped quickly into winter here, yesterday we only reach a high of -9C.  Last Challenge we enjoyed making Autumn cards, and this time the Cuttlebug Mania Challenge is having an envelope on your card, and I had a lot of fun with this challenge.

Challenge - Envelope on a Card

Challenge runs for 2 weeks. 
Don't forget to let us know how you used your Cuttlebug!

Card Size: 4.25" x 5.5"
 I enjoyed working with bright colours for this card...right now I'm making a lot of Christmas cards so it was a nice change to break out the spring-like colours. 

I made my envelope from scratch and embossed it before putting it together.  I added a little card that pulls out of the envelope and coloured white grosgrain ribbon with a Copic marker to make it match my paper.
