Crafts Galore Encore July 2018

Summer has definitely arrived in Britain with lots of glorious sunshine. I have even managed to enjoy some of it in between my almost weekly travels across two countries trying to deal with family issues. At least I've found time for a bit of crafting, so ....

Welcome to my July post for
Thank you to everyone who joined in with June's challenge. The winners are on the challenge blog's 'winner's page'. This is a month long challenge and you can enter up to three times. A full list of rules are on the challenge blog.

Our theme every month is the popular
"Anything Goes"

Our sponsor this month is:
Beccy's Place

I've made a 6"x 6" card.

I started by matting and layering a Papermania wood effect paper onto Kraft card and fixing to a card blank.

The Design Team was generously offered a choice of images from Beccy's Place and I chose this Old Mailbox digi image and coloured it with my Copics. I then trimmed and mounted it on Kraft card.

I deconstructed a Papermania envelope in a wood effect pattern and fixed to Kraft card with a stamped sentiment from Dovecraft. I finished with some thin cord and the envelope fastener.
