There's a little bit of burlap and corrugated card board used for lots of texture.  I am "wild" about Wild Rose Studio stamps.   They have just about the cutest Christmas stamps I have ever seen and their Snowmen are precious.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Until next time.....Happy Crafting!

Winter Wonderland Loaded Envelope

Hello Crafty Friends! This is a Winter Wonderland Loaded Envelope for practice....of's my first one!!!  I loved doing it.  Please check out the Loaded Envelopes Galore Facebook page by Ana Elda Torres for swaps and ideas! These are a lot of fun to make.
This loaded envelope is going to a non-paper crafting friend.  It's loaded with stationery type things to use on presents-like tags, cards, and decorations.  My love for deer/forest/snow themed crafting is carrying over with me this  If that is appealing to you as well, I suggest you check out the Ice Crystals paper pad at Michael's this year for inspiration.  It's just full of beautiful dear, ice blue colors, and snowflakes!
HaHa.....check out this owl, isn't he cute!!!  Oh my gosh, I fell in love with him.  He's supposed to be a tree ornament, but I got something up my sleeve with him.  Just in case your wondering, he came from Hobby Lobby.  This is the card I made to go with my loaded envelope.  Don't you just love how everything coordinates!  If you are interested in seeing whats included inside the envelope, what brand dies used, and more detailed looks; please see the video below.  Until next time friends, Happy Crafting!
