It’s Tips’n Tricks video time again and this time I’ve got not one, not two, but 5 ways to decorate an envelope!
Each one is a quick and easy way to add polish to your handcrafted card package, with very little cost and effort!
Let’s see one of the designs and how perfectly it coordinates with my card.
How would you like to open up that flap? Not only does it give an awesome surprise, it’s a precursor of the fabulous card awaiting your recipient!
Let’s take a peek at my 5 ways to decorate an envelope video then I’ll give you a closer view of the design below.
A Closer Peek at 5 Ways to Decorate an Envelope
Add a Piece of Designer Series Paper to the Flap
An absolutely gorgeous way to show someone how much they mean to you! This From the Heart Specialty DSP really IS special! This is probably my favourite piece from the entire package!
Repeat a Stamped Image from the Card on the Envelope Front
How pretty is this delicate poppy? Coloured to exactly match your card inside, the address will nestle right up next to it!
Stamped Envelope Outside Flap
This just might be my favourite way to add colour and polish to my envelope, especially with the lovely Petals & Parcels stamps. It’s become one of my MUST-HAVE sets from the Annual Catalogue. Check out this other design.
Dry Emboss the Flap
There is nothing quite like the elegance of a deliciously detailed embossing folder. The Parisian Flourish is one that will knock you – and your recipient’s – socks off!
Partial Cut the Flap
Was that one a surprise? But isn’t it fun? This is the Stitched Be Mine dies but take a closer look at all your dies. Which ones would be ideal for this?
