St. Patrick's Day Envie - 3D Wednesday with My Creative Time

Good Morning!  Today I have an envelope I made by hand with cardstock and Emma's XL Label dies.  It is another 3D Wednesday with My Creative Time!
 I made a pattern for the bottom of the envelope out of a basic rectangle and layered the XL Label dies on the top to make the flap.
I am making about 60 of these for my children's classmates.  I'm class mom for one of my children this year and I like to send in at least a little something for every holiday. "AND" if I do for one I just have to do for the other, hehehe!!!  I can't send in any edible treats so I picked up a bunch of "Lucky" money coins.  The little ones usually love these little "treasures".

I embossed the Shamrock with UTEE to make it nice and shiny.  Sometimes I like UTEE better than Glossy Accents because you can dry the UTEE very quickly.  Also any bubbles that show up can be fixed by reheating them out!

I found some extra-thin adhesive hook and loop tape to close the back of the envies. They don't add much bulk and keep the flap closed nicely.
List of Supplies:
UTEE Powder, Versamark Watermark Stamp Pad and Heat Gun
Vintage ream Card Stock  -  Papertrey Ink
For the Record 2 6x6 pad  -  Echo Park
Peeled Paint Distress Ink
Hook and Look Adhesive Strips  -  Tombo
Well I'm glad you stopped by to see me today!  I hope the children will enjoy their little "treasure".
Please stop by My Creative Time to see some more 3D projects.  Enjoy your day!
Love and Hugs,
Cathryn :)
