Tuesday Tip- Cardmaking 101: Dressing Up Your Envelopes for Handmade Cards


This evening (before Tuesday is over!), I have a quick tip for dressing up those envelopes for your handmade cards.  By using designer or patterened paper that coordinates with your cards, you can create matching envelopes for each one you make!

Let's take a look at the quick video tutorial below...

Today's video for dressing up your envelopes for handmade cards can be seen HERE on You Tube.

Lisa's Inklings...other ways to dress up envelopes:

  • Stamp image used on card on front lower corner of the envelope.
  • Use a sponge to add a coordinating color to the edges of your envelope.
  • A coordinating color of washi tape can add a "slice" of color when added about 1/4" up from the bottom edge of envelope.
  • Spritz color by mixing ink refill drops with rubbing alcohol in a Stampin' Spritzer.

Try the tip in today's video and the others listed above to dress up those envelopes for your handmade cards!
