Fourth Tuesday Fun Fold Envelope Pocket Card

Several Stampin' Addicts were chatting that a Fun Fold Technique addition might be fun, so on the 4th Tuesday of each month, a Fun Fold will be posted in the Stampin' Addicts Technique Challenge forum. Here's a link if you'd like to play:  (The other Tuesdays in the month will still feature regular techniques.)

For the first Fun Folds challenge, I decided to use the envelope pocket card Stampin' Up! demonstrator friends of mine saw at Convention.  You could also create this look by using regular cardstock, and your cardfront could be just a bit smaller than the envelope shown here.

 I used a four-year-old picture of the girls (It matched nicely.) on the inside (Stampin' Up! made an invitation.) and a vintage style color combination of RidingHood Red, Always Artichoke, Very Vanilla and Baja Breeze.  The Very Vanilla 1/8" taffeta is always nice, and the Welcome Christmas Set and Teahouse background furthered the old-timey feel of this card without being embellishment heavy.
