Envelope Card - Forever

Hello everyone today I am sharing with you my project for Memory Maze
 I decided to make a card with a difference for you all.
A card with a difference you say, yes a difference.
A girly, grungy envelope card

  1. Using a 12x12 inch piece of cardstock cut to 8x12 inches. Then score at 4 and 8 inches.
  2. Crease your score lines and measure along the top  of your card at 4 inches, mark with a pencil, this will be the middle of your card, then measure 1/2 inch to either side and mark with a pencil so it should be marked at 3 1/2 and 4 1/2 inches. Draw a line with a pencil from the 3 1/2 inch mark back to the left score line, do the same to the other side. ( image 1) Then cut.

4. I have used two pieces of 12x12 inch pattern paper for the inside and outside. Cut 3 pieces at 7 3/4     x 3 3/4 inches. Tape two of these to the bottom two 8x12 inch rectangle pieces not forgetting to           place your end of your ribbon under the top of the first pattern paper before taping this down, 
    then with the top one do the same as for the top of your card. ( Measure to the middle then 1/2 inch     either side and cut to bottom corners) Not forgetting your other piece of ribbon to tie your card           together. (Image 2) Do the same to the middle of your card I also added a small pocket to the               bottom by cutting some cardstock at 7 1/2 x 2 3/4 inches, pattern paper at 7 1/4 x 2 1/2 inches and       tape together. Turn over and place thin tape along both small sides and along the bottom. Tape to         the bottom of your card. I sprayed some spray onto the front and back of my card
5. Now for the chipboard cover well with some gesso, then I have used some Liquid pearls to cover       them then pounced with a paint brush to give it that metalic look. Dry with a heat gun and make it       bubble more texture, when dry and cool rub over some gold leaf wax gently around the edges
    and the top. I also covered the butterflies with gesso, really roughly and sprayed with some spray,       dry with heat gun and keep on using the spray until you are happy with the look.
6. Add your flowers and butterflies and I cut three tags to go into the inside pocket.
