Happy Friday! It's time for another edition of All Eyes On, and this month, I asked the fabulous design to focus on envelopes. You know, those plain boring envelopes. After spending all of that time creating the perfect card it just seems blasphemous to hide it in a plain envelope! So, whether you are mailing your card or hand delivering, I asked the ladies to show us some envelopes worthy of housing our little works of art.
I decided to focus on sprucing up envelopes for mailing, which means no embellishments or layers. Oh yeah...my kinda crafting; one layer stamping! There are tons of ways to add that little something extra to your envelopes, whether you play with framing the address areas, or adding a watermarked image. I have two fun examples to share with you using All Occasion Tags and From The Kitchen Of.
Isn't that too cute? I stamped the journaling lines from "From The Kitchen" of in the upper left hand corner along with the "From:" stamp from "All Occasion Tags" for the return address. For the address I used the tag, eyelet, and the "To:" stamps. To create the string I first lightly sketched the lines and then went over them with a white gel pen. Once it was dry I erased any left over pencil lines.
Now this one is so versatile. There are a ton of holiday themed images and phrases in "All Occasion Tags" that make mass producing this layout for all of your holiday cards a breeze! All I had to do was add the journaling lines from "From The Kitchen Of" for my recipient and return address and I'm done. So easy and worth adding that final touch.
I would love to see your ideas as well. If we've inspired you or sparked your creativity, be sure to link up your projects in the comments. Thanks for stopping by and happy Friday!
