Icky Flubu

Hiya everyone. :) I've got another 'different' project to share with you today, in the sense that it isn't a traditional card. :) I always love finding projects and different ways to use envelopes, so when I came across this card over at Christinas Scrapkammaren, I just had to give it a go. 

Having a bunch of 'unusual' sized envelopes (because it's a little obsession I have on the side), but not being one to dedicate myself to making a whole mini album, little projects such as this are fab, and much quicker than an album.

So.. incase you haven't met him before.. I'd like to introduce to to Flubu, from Paper Makeup Stamps. Isn't he lush? Heehee. He put a right smile on my face when I came across him over at the Quixotic Paperie shop, and knew I had to have him. He'll come in terribly handy around this time of year, everyone is getting ill with some bug or another. Yuck.

HA! Don'tcha just wanna hug him till he dies?! Green with pink spots. Of course. I think next time round I'ma colour him up like that big fluffy monster from Monsters Inc. Know the one? Aqua with purple dots - beaut!! I've used some papers from Basic Grey's Sweet Threads collection. I've also paper pieced his little towel using the same collection. Ahhh. :)

This is the insert which fits inside the envelope. A space equivalent to the inside of a card. I think it's such a neat idea, don't know how I haven't come across it before. I used the sentiment which comes with Flubu. "Sorry you feel so icky" Perfect? No? Just to finish off the white panel I stamped Flubu in Memento Tuxedo Black, stamped it off once and then stamped it onto the panel - not such a stark black then. :) 

This shows how it all goes together, sort of. Christina had left the flap of her envelope free, but I decided to fold mind down and adhere it under the front panel of the card. I used a 1/2" circle punch to cut a little piece out of the back of the envelope. The pink ribbon fits perfectly into the gap, so from the front it all looks flush. :)

Hope you've enjoyed this as much as I did making it. P.S This envelope measures approx 3.75"x2.75" give or take a few eighths. :)
