Peanut Butter & Jelly

I was asked to make a housewarming card by a dear friend of mine, but it wasn't any ordinary card..she had some specifics.. YAY! So I accepted the challenge and I think it turned out fairly well! were the specifics: #1 It is for a housewarming gift.  #2 It needs to include something to do with peanut butter and jelly (thats what they call eah other)  #3 Would like to add the address or something personal to it to commemorate their first house.
Sounds like a great challenge and I LOVE challenges!
Here is what I came up with...

This is the card when you first pull it out of the envelope

And when you open it up..

The windows and grass were cut from the Sweet Treats Boxes Cricut cartridge.
The wreath was made using a snowflake paper punch as well as the little hearts and flowers.
I cut the door and embossed it to give it some depth.
Eveything else you see was cut by hand :)

Now the envelope was a little tricky! The card was so big and thick that a 12"x12" piece of card stock wasn't big enough! So I had to be creative, and experiment. After about 6 pieces of paper, I finally came up with this...

(front of envelope)
It is actually 1/4" thick to allow for the thickness of the card.

(back of envelope)
I thought it was fitting to make some more pb&j :)

What a relief to get on to the next challenge! YAY!!
