"Belli Challenge" - Envelopes

This week's "Belli Challenge" is using envelopes in a creative way. I made this out of a Brown Square Envelope from the last Mini Catalog - I hope Stampin' Up has them in the next catalog. I sealed the envelope and cut the sides to make a basket shape. Then I added Twill and the greeting using the circle punches and the scallop punch. The Sock Monkey Set, Ridinghood Red Ink and Card Stock and the designer series paper will be in the Fall/Winter Catalog from Stampin' Up. I stamped the monkey on vanilla card stock and on vanilla card stock that had the Twill Background Stamp stamped in Chocolate Chip
Ink. Then I cut the Twill stamped monkey and glued the parts that I wanted to be brown onto the vanilla monkey. The eyes kid of disappeared so I used a punch with Basic Black Card Stock to make the eyes. My daughter couldn't wait until i was finished so she could eat the cookie.
