PTI Make it Monday #163- Envelope Wraps

This week's Papertrey Make it Monday (#163) is all about envelope wraps. Danielle Flanders' are gorgeous!!  I decided to make one for my Mother's Day card with some grey cardstock since the contrast of a white envelope and the grey wrap is nice and subtle.

Ok, first the card, and then the wrap!  I used a Quatrefoil cover plate cut as a stencil with some white embossing paste that I then covered with Ranger rock candy glitter - this stuff well ... rocks! :)
Here is the glitter up close with the Feather Finery die cut (stamped in Fresh pool and navy):
And I tried to capture the shine of the Studio Calico Shine mist that I added - not sure if you can see it better above or below ...
I used a new to me set from Winnie and Walter - love the oversized sentiments - they look so great with pigment inks!
And now for the envelope wrap - I mimicked the same colours on the card and inside for the wrap.  I used one of the Edgers dies (Edgers #3) for the edge to give a decorative finish.  I stamped the large feather and sprinkles and then the cute little birdie on the other side with some decorative SC washi.
I added some Michaels washi on the envelope itself and adhered the wrap using Glossy Accents - that stuff will get anything to stick like no other!
 Here's the front of the wrap after it was adhered:
 and the back:
I will definitely make some more wraps for cards - they are so fun!! :)  Thanks for the idea, Danielle!

So pretty, Cara! I always forget about that sweet bird from the Feathers set ... I love how you stamped him on your envelope wrap!
