Swap Sister Card & Envelope Ready for the Mail!

I am so excited to share another Twist and Pop card I made for my Swap Sister! 
A little thing about my Swap Sister, I met her online over 2 years ago, maybe it's been 3!! Anyhow, she bought a retired stamp from me and we have kept in touch. We have been swapping cards every month since! I was so excited when she agreed to swap for another year. Her cards have been published in Creative Scrapbooker Magazine, formally Canadian Scrapbooking. She does beautiful work!
Here is the card I made for her.

I used the Touches of Texture & Tin of Cards Stamp sets from the Annual Cataloge.
The WoW comes when you open the card!

I also used the Designer Series Paper Stack in the Brights Collection. I used the Melon Mambo DSP and Cardstock. Bright and cheery for a cold day!!
I also pulled out my Envelope Punch Board! I am sad to say that I haven't used this in some time, but that is going to change! It is so easy to make up to 66 different sizes for any card! Right at your finger tips! Here's what I made.

I watched a few videos on sprucing up an envelope. WoW! So simple and is sure to put a smile on my recipients face!
I sponged So Saffron, Sweet Sugar Plum & Pool Party. I stamped the Timeless Textures Grid Stamp a few times in the corner stamped off once with Basic Grey Ink, Full ink with the Flourish Stamp. The butterfly was embossed in Black and colored with a retired Gold Pen. I also used a retired Spritzer in Gold. So soft and pretty!
That's it for today!
Check back tomorrow for Mailable Monday!
