 Hello Monday, my friends! And welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Thank you for joining us for the  Light and Airy Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is: ROMANCE, WEDDING AND'OR ANNIVERSARY

Well, I am not sure just what to call this...a card? an envelope book? an interactive card? Whatever it is, it will make a lovely gift of love for the recipient, whether it is for a wedding, anniversary, or just because. I had a lot of fun with it, that's for sure.


I began with two 5x7" envelopes and tucked one into the other. You just slide the triangle parts into the other envelope.

Then, I had fun cutting the Graphic 45 Mon Amour papers and figuring out placements. I edged the papers with Simon's Mocha ink and a small blending brush. 

I covered everything, including the flap on the one side. I decided to make this my cover.

I fussy cut the flap and inner pieces by laying the envelope over the paper and marking it with a pencil.

I added some of the embellishment designs from the paper pack, and decided to stamp in some of the lovely Abstract Flowers from Tim Holtz. 

Here, I also made a little pocket and added a pull out tag. 

I saw this big open space and felt it needed a flower.
