Shabby Chic Loaded Envelope Stack

Hi again! I'm almost finished catching up. Wheewww, I always say I am not gonna fall behind and it happens. But in all honesty I feel so much more comfortable writing in this blog rather than try to make a video for YouTube. Being on video is not in the cards for me. I can express myself more by writing. 
Anyhow on to this project. This was made for a swap over at the Facebook Group Gold Pro Loaded Envelope. Its a Shabby Chic Envelope Stack. 

For this one I made it using the Prima Lavender Collection. This was the 1st time using this paper and i love it! I made each envelope using my Martha Stewart Score Board. I added cardboard on the bottom ones so that they had depth, then I distressed the edges then as I was adhering them together I added lace and cheese cloth in between some of the layers. For the top envelope I left it without the cardboard was I added die cuts, ephemera , and much more so that my swap partner can find something special inside it. 

I then added the embellishments, flowers on the front. I used an image for the top from one of the packages off of 7Gypsies Architexture Rub On Packs. They are beautiful images. This lady image looks amazing!! Then I added some White Nuvo drops along the edges of the opening of the envelope. I then set the stack on some metal claw feet. This project will look great on top of my swap partners dresser, nightstand, where ever she wants it to be it is sure to standout. Make sure u check out my next post to see another similar one I made for another partner for the same swap. Thanks so checking this one out!! Hopefully ill get a chance to do a tutorial on my Snapguide!
