Wedding Gift Wallet

Crafty friends, followers and visitors.  Hope today finds you as well as can be.  This hot weather is absolutely wonderful, I think the sun makes you feel better.  When its very humid, I've got to admit I struggle.  Today's share is another style of gift card for a Wedding, although it could easily be used for another occasion.
The Wedding Theme was Cadbury's Purple, this fits the bill perfectly.  The envelope is made of an A4 sheet of Centura Pearl (Hint of Silver), this has been embossed with Spellbinders fancy lattice.
Made into a DL size, tri fold.  Mark the center point, then 3 cms from each edge and cut from the centre to each point. Giving the envelope its actual shape. Curve the edges for a professional finish.
Secure the sides using Super Sticky Red Liner tape.
Using 1mm purple bling, decorate the front panel following the lattice pattern,
Decorate each side of the envelope front using White Candi, by Craftwork Cards
To keep the envelope secure use a circular pad of velcro on the inside lip
Decorate with Cadbury's Purple Ribbon from Mei flower and flowers made from 2 Crafter's Companion small Sunflower quilling die and a daisy made by snipping into a circular hoop of paper then rolling to give the effect of a diasy, I got this idea from Anna Marie Designs,
Complete the flowers with Bling in the center and arrange around the ribbon.

Take a piece of purple card cut and score to make a card base 5 x 3 inches
Mat and Layer with Centura Pearl, and finish with a Spellbinders Rectanglar Sign
Some people think they are old fashioned by I still use my peel offs especially when it comes to personalising, but in this case I simply used '4 and U' and arranged on the panel.
