LOVE....

Just talking about drinking more water..... obviously I didn't, that is why I am sick for the past 2 days... 

...............

.....


At PTI Make it Monday #100 this week
Dawn McVey showed us how to package cards with oversized embellishments, there's a video tutorial HERE, check it out!
Out of the three ways, I tried the one using glassine bag, not only I think it is pretty, also because I have a pack of glassine bag bought from Papertrey Ink sometime ago and it is about time to make used of them.

Here's the oversized card that won't fit into the envelope its size



and here's how I packaged it with glassine bag, I like that you can still see the pretty colors of the card

Beautiful card and bag Kirsty! I love the way you can still see the card through the bag too. Especially because of the faded but still bright colors, matching the bag.

Hope you'll feel jumping alive soon!

Your card is a thing of beauty...and I love that you packaged it in a glassine bag...I usually end up using little organza bags.
