Young Crafters Unite! Challenge #2

Hello Everyone!
Today is the next installment of Young Crafters Unite! Challenge #2 - Create an Envelope to Match!


I like this challenge because I typically always try and decorate my envelopes to go with my cards (although I tend do the envelopes later).  Decorating the envelope gives your card a lovely little home to live in don't you think?  Here is my project for this challenge.


I created the card using distress inks to make the fall inspired gradient, then I used the same gradient idea on the envelope but this time with stamping.  I usually keep my envelope designs simple by creating them using only stamped images and colors of ink.  It can be challenging but has a nice effect. Now, I can't wait to see how all of you create your envelopes to match!

Be sure you check out all the other amazing design team creations.
