StampTV March Facebook Challenge

Hi there,
I'm back again with my entry for the StampTV March Facebook Challenge. This month, Lee asked us to create a card with a different shape. No square or rectangular cards! Since I wanted to make a thank you card, I decided that I may as well use my oval nesties this time. My newest StampTV kit: Petals & Wings also arrived this week and I couldn't wait to use the new stamps.

The images in the new kit are really, really cute! I couldn't resist making a matching envelope with the Petals and Wings DP. Because my card is oval, I had to change the 4x4 envie template slightly. I placed the 6x6 paper on my Scorpal as per Gina's video and scored 3 of the sides on the 8. I had to score the 4th side on 8.5 as I needed just a little bit of extra space due to the oval shape of the card. The envelope is therefore more rectangular than square. Because of the one side being slightly longer, the flap at the back doesn't overlap when you close the envie, so I used the ribbon to tie around the top to keep it closed.


Thanks for looking!
