For You...WMS November SOAP Day3 50

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, November 3, 2011 @ 12:00 AM | , ,

Hello! I'm back today for Day 3 of the Waltzingmouse Stamps November SOAP sharing a few more holiday projects that may hopefully help provide some inspiration when you are creating for your loved ones :) With a little, ok A LOT, of help from my sweetie, I made several gift card envelopes and adorned each with a beautiful Waltzingmouse ornament and sweet little tag.
Since my hubby provides 24/7 in house tech support to me exclusively, I had him whip up a gift envelope  in SVG format so I could use the Cricut Expressions to cut them out. Here's what it looks like when opened. I cut these samples to hold a 4" x 4" card as well. The beauty of using the Cricut to cut items like these, you have the ability to cut it any size your little heart desires with just a few button clicks. Gotta love that ~ I know I sure do!
The To:, From: and For You sentiments shown on all are from  Nordic Winter, the glittery ornament shown below is from 2011 Holiday Ornaments and was cut using a Spellbinders 2011 Heirloom Ornament Die template:
How about Kraft and Lavender?
The beautiful ornament below is from Vintage Ornaments and coordinates perfectly with a Spellbinders Heirloom Ornament die template:
Anyone up for Old Olive and Pretty in Pink?
Another beautiful ornament image from 2011 Holiday Ornaments:
Maybe you prefer a little Blush Blossom and Cameo Coral?
Couldn't resist this pretty ornament image from 2011 Holiday Ornaments:
In case you are curious what the envelope looks like opened completely:

Love those glittery ornament tags! You have sold me on a Cricut Expression so maybe Santa will bring me one for Christmas, hope so. I am thinking the ornament tags are what I'd like to CASE for the challenge, they are so sparkly and irrestible. :-)

Can I ask....how exactly did you get the envelope for this?? I have looked up every cricut cartridge I can find online and can't find any that cut out that design?? I abolutely love it and would really appreciate knowing how you did that!!
