Let’s Eat Cake & Celebrate!

A couple months ago I found some cute little glassine air mail envelopes at Michael’s. I wasn’t sure what I was going to use them for, until it was time to make a birthday card for a friend who loves to travel. The card isn’t really travel themed, but sometimes all you need is the tiniest bit of inspiration to get an idea going.

I layered a 3×4 card and a piece of grey cardstock and slipped those into the envelope like they were a letter. I stapled a scrap of paper that had a birthday sentiment to the front of the envelope, and popped the whole thing off the card using foam dots. A strip of navy paper that I embellished, some die cuts of grey toned patterned paper, and embellishments in navy, red, and white complete the card.
