A simple and easy card using a cardstock base matted and layered with co ordinating papers and topped with a vintage emphemera tag with an added diecut birdhouse in glittered paper ( die available from Crafters Companion) and some frayed ribbon to complete the project.
A quick and easy gift for a friend. A Bithday Loaded Envelope. I added earrings , a feather pen which doubled as a wand element, and a lip balm set as presents with a birthday card and some vintage emphemera to fill up the spaces in the pockets. I made the envelope with glittered cardstock and added 2 pockets. I added a Birthday stamped image. I bought the stamp from Unity stamps. Finally added some vintage lace and some word beads which read Make a Wish for the completed look.

I have recently discovered Loaded Envelopes. What a joy to create and fill. I have joined a couple of themed swaps recently. Here is a Breakfast at Tiffanys mini loaded envelope I created using brown and teal cardstock which is a gorgeous colour scheme.
I added a couple of wands, flatback pearls and even used a nail varnish type bottle ( which originally came with a set of nails in it ) to create a shaker bottle which matched in with the theme, I altered paperclips and added beautiful flowers from my stash and made some simple tags using images from the film.
The recipient loved it and I was sad to send it away as I loved it so much but wanted to gift it and create smiles for someone else.
