I have a question for you... do you stamp or decorate your envelopes? You should! I know Kristina Werner makes some fabuloso decorated envelopes but for me, I'm taking baby steps lol. I just wanted to share what I use.
I like stamping on the flap of the envelope with a happy mail type stamp. I have these two right now, bought from Simon Says Stamp. You can get in some MAJOR trouble at that store, just sayin'.... :)
Check this out, how cute is this one?? I just bought this a week or so ago because it's so different. I bought this one from The Ton called Pretty Mail.
The other thing that I have and I love is an envelope liner die. I bought this from Papertrey Ink. I don't use it with every card but when I have time I'll put one in or if it's a super special card I will as well. I just stick it down in the envelope and line the crease on it with the envelope crease and make sure it closes well and I put some tombo mono adhesive on the back and stick it down. You can use any kind of adhesive. I just use this one in case I get it crooked. I've used Scor-Tape before and pressed it down crooked so learn from my mistakes grasshoppers. LOL! I then will put a strip of Scor-Tape where you lick the envelope. I also do this when I sell a card or am giving cards away because I think it looks good.
Here are a few pictures of how I've used these stamps and the liner die in the past.
Doesn't this add a classy touch to the card?
(these next two go together)
Many people stamp flowers on the envelope. I have this bunny from Stamping Bella but I haven't used him yet. He's called Edward the Edgy Bunny
Then I put a matching piece of washi tape across the back where it seals. :)
I hope I've inspired you to stamp or decorate on your envelopes.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
