My Valentine's card from hubby came in a lovely gold envelope and Owen now knows not to write on any special envelopes he gives me - it's taken a while to train him but he's got it now LOL! This challenge seemed the perfect project to use my gold envelope for so I measured the envelope first and made a 12.5 cms (4 7/8") square Old Olive card base to fit. I found the ticket shape already cut out in my stash so I decided to use that. I stamped the words stamp from the Season of Joy set twice, once in Old Olive ink and again in Riding Hood Red ink, cut out some red pieces and glued them over the top of the green. I embossed just part of the card with the Sizzix 'Sugar' embossing folder and then assembled the ticket panel, adding some gold lurex ribbon and some gold nailheads. I added more ribbon around the embossing to finish off the card front.
