Stampavie Star Gazing Accordian Envelope

Todays post is for both my Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge Post and my turn at the Stampavie DT Blog - love double duty!

I thought I would share a fun 3-D project I found recently. I went surfing the net to find something fun to send out something "SPECIAL" to someone.... wink wink... and found a great Accordion Envelope on Splitcoast Stampers - You can find it HERE It was really simple to put together, and I love the size of it! Perfect to store or send Stampavie images...wink wink...
I used Basic Grey Figgy Pudding papers to make the Accordion Envelope, love collections where there is no worry if they all work well together - you just know they do!
Then for the fun image I chose the new Laurence image Star Gazing, I love this image! But why do I always want a coke and a smile while coloring it?  LOL  Colored with Copics, then I used a Snow Pen to add some depth to all the white snow of the image.  I roughly cut out the image and attached it to the bottom left corner of the envelope.

The edge of my top is punched with a Martha Stewart Doily Lace border punch and then a ribbon and large button for the tie down closure.

The inside is pretty simple I did make a couple of dividers  -
 I hope you liked it.. and I hope the person that it is on its way to likes it too? Now pop on over to A Spoon Full of Sugar, and the Stampavie Blog ;0)

HUGS and -
