Matchbox, card and envelope

Hello, Summer! Calender says it's summer but I can't see it by looking outside. It's rainy and cold and we had snow on Tuesday. There is something seriously wrong with Weatherman. Oh well... I'll better show you a simple rainy day project.

The box is made with 6 x 6 " pattern paper and Envelope Punch board. It's really fun and easy box. I followed the tutorial from here. For decorations I used leftovers from previous project. 

Rectangle piece of pattern paper was covered with 2 1/2" Tear-ific Tape. After removing the protective sheet I placed a leftover protective sheet sprig shape die cut on top to act as a mask. Tape was covered with Crystal Ice Glitter. Then I removed the sprig and covered rest of the tape with Sea Spray Glitter. Edges of the pattern paper was covered with SNS Dimensional Glue and I sprinkled Sea Spray Glitter on top.

For the card I placed some Tear-ific Tape directly to the card base and adhered a leftover die-cut piece of paper covered with 2 1/2" Double Sided "Tear-ific Tape" on top. Sticky part was covered with  with Sea Spray Glitter. Then I removed protective sheet around the sprig cut-out and covered it with Crystal Ice Glitter. 

I also made an envelope for a card. Just because I wanted to play with an Envelope Punch Board :)It is decorated with 1/2" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape, Crystal Ice Glitter, SNS Dimensional Glue and Sea Spray Glitter
