KWerner Design COLOR INSPIRATION #25

I love Kristina's pick of colors this week. I decided not to do a card, but an envelope instead. By decorating an envelope like a card it gives an otherwise overlooked part of a gift some presence! Hope you find it fun, and try it for yourself!


this is NOT a card!

Donna, I could not find you from the url you left on my blog. Thanks for the comments.This is a clever idea and well done. I am not sure I could use it either, it is really nice.

This is fantastic - I would love to get a dressed up envelope, makes you anticipate what's inside. Very nice job.

Hi Donna,

Love your card! As always - everything you create is simply beautiful!!!

I tried to do your bow tutorial that you had posted a while back and this is what I came up with

Thanks so much for that tutorial - the bow that you made is just gorgeous - I think I need more practice :) thanks for inspiring me and for teaching all of us this great Donna bow!!!

Hope all is well!!!
much love,
Sankari :)

SO clever Donna! What an ideal wrapping for one of your beautiful cards this would be. Can you imagine seeing that gorgeous envelope amongst a pile of wedding gifts? Awesome!
