BBQ Envelope Card

Happy Tuesday! Yesterday was a gorgeous day. I think today will be our last nice day before the rain moves in. Not looking forward to 4 days of rain. I have a really fun card today. Given this weekend is Memorial Day and the Indy 500 is running, it's time to break out the BBQ!

All the images for this card come from the Summer BBQ set from Imagine That! Digis by Kris. It was such fun to create this scene. I used the pre-colored images from the stamp set and I fussy cut every one of them. Took a while to cut them all out. The card is an envelope card and I followed the tutorial at Splitcoast Stampers. The clouds are die cut from Spellbinder's Conversation Bubbles 4 and the grass was cut from Simon Says Stitched Hills and Slopes dies.

This is a top view f the card when it's open. And when you get ready to close the card it looks like this.

And the card totally closed can be addressed and mailed if your embellishments aren't too bulky.

If you flip this over you can address the other side. This was such fun to create. I'm going to send this to our nephew for his birthday. He loves to grill so I think he'll appreciate it.
Today my card is featured over at Imagine That! Creative Playground. I hope you'll check out the other awesome guest designer cards.
I am entering these challenges:
Thank you for stopping by today. Hopefully your weather is ready for grilling. I know that's one of my favorite meals. Make it an awesome day!

Oh my goodness this is so cute!!!! I love the fold and 3-D look. The images are so cute, the little guy holding the hamburger and hot-dog is positioned just right on the card!

What a nice card.. your hand is probably still tired from all the cutting :) It looks like a party for sure. Have a great weekend.
