Wedding Card Envelope

Like my post yesterday being able to finally have a reason to make a card that I've always wanted to; I have always wanted to decorate my envelopes but never have.  I was always afraid that the mail wouldn't accept the envelope and it would be ruined.  And usually when I pass out cards I don't waste an envelope unless it's necessary to have the card hidden.

Since I knew that I wouldn't be mailing this card and had a reason to keep the card hidden, gave me the reasons I needed to decorate the envelope finally!!



Card with outside envelope

I used the same stamp set as I did with the card Baroque Motif.  I love how people use the Designer Series Paper on the inside of envelopes so I wanted to incorporate that.  My intention was to cut along the top flap so you only see the DSP when it's opened but loved how this looked when I left some showing.  I just rounded the corners to match the flap.  Finally, I had to figure out how to close it, since I covered the seal with DSP.  I saw this technique at Regional and was so happy I remembered it.  I think it just adds such a cute touch to the card and allows the recipient to unwind the twine so the envelope isn't ruined!

Here's how to do it: Punch 2 hears with the Small Heart Punch than a adhere to envelope with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Add Rhinestones to the center and cut some Bakers Twine (I used white) and wind around hearts to close the envelope.

Simple but I love how this envelope turned out to go with my wedding card.  I might just have to do this more often now that I love the added touch the decorated envelope gives my handmade cards.


  1. The card and Gift Card envelopes go side by side with each other..I like it.

  2. Oh so lovely creation! I just lovely your designs! Keep the inspiration coming!
