I started off with taking apart a red packet and drew a template on card - this way, I can use the same template again. The template was outlined on red metallic paper (card stock would be too thick) and folded and glued on two sides. I then added matching washi paper, ribbon and the Chinese character for 'Double Happiness' to both the envelope and the red packet. I also added this to inside the card as well. I hope my friends like it! Looking forward to a grand wedding next weekend!!

The second card is for our bank teller who is getting married next week. She is not Chinese, so this is a totally different card to the one above! I wanted to use the beautiful paper from the Kaisercraft Sweet Nothings pad as this have beautiful soft colours I could use. I also used my favourite dogwood stamp for a bit of fun paper piecing - my favourite technique. I used a strip of patterned paper on the envelope to match. Thanks for dropping by! I'll be off air until I get back the following week!
