Best of Halloween Thinlit Circle Card & Coordinating Envelope

I've been having fun today playing with the new Thinlit Circle framelit and the Envelope punch board (see previous post).  I ended up making a Halloween card and a coordinating envelope.

I used the Circle card framelit to create this fun flip card,  The accompanying scallop circle die was used to create the focal image on the front and back of the circle.  To do this, I sponged Night of Navy, Tangerine Tango and Daffodil Delight on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and stamped the image from Best of halloween on.  The image was then die cut using the scallop circle die which accompanies this framelit set.  A second image was created for the back of the circle and the same technique was used, except I stamped the sentiment on it. 
Some designer paper was attached to the back and a strip to the front.  The chevrons, die cut in Tangerine Tango were also from the accent pieces.
I tied a black and gray satin ribbon (retired) around the card at the back and tied it in a know.

Envelope: This was made with the new envelope making tool using a piece of designer paper.  I adhered a blank shipping label so that the envelope could be addressed and mailed.  The only thing I am waiting for now is a "lick and stick" adhesive that I saw in Vancouver but was unable to buy because the store was all sold out.  I have ordered some on line and am waiting for its arrival.  This product is applied like glue, dries and the sender licks the glue to moisten it and sticks the envelope flap down. Maybe SU will have that product next!

Stamp: Best of Halloween
Inks: Night of Navy, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Basic Black
Papers: Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Tangerine Tango, Witches Brew DSP
Accessories: Thinlits card circle and accessories, Gray/black satin ribbon, Envelope making tool

Very cute card Maria! StampinUp did have a product a few years ago to glue your envelope closed. It was called Greeting Glue. Just thought I would let you know that little tidbit of information.
