Inkling: black and white envelope card

Red and pink colors are everywhere with Valentine’s Day coming up. I thought it might be fun to make a non-red or pink card.  Something I could give my husband that wasn’t too frilly.

I came up with this black and white envelope card. The cut outs are the address and return address areas filled with tiny white hearts.

To make this card, I used black card stock and cut out the address and return address areas. I used the windows from junk mail window envelopes to make the small packets that hold the hearts. The hearts are made out of white card stock using a micro heart hole punch.

I’ll use a silver or white gel pen to write a sweet note inside.

Or, I may not be able to resist and have to use a pink pen.

This project is linked to the following:

Inkling: window envelope gift cards

I’ve found one good thing about junk mail and bills. You can reuse the window envelopes to make a cute craft.

To make these little gift cards, cut a window into a piece of cardstock.
Cut out the window portion from your junk mail window envelope and fold in half.
Add colorful paper punches. For mine I added the letter printouts “BFF” and “I heart U” for some extra cuteness. Glue the edges of the window closed and glue onto the back side of your card window. Cover the backside of the window with another piece of paper so that when you open the card you don’t see the window.

Micro hole punch the top corner and add a string.

And “I heart U” for visiting my blog!
