Hi there! Welcome to this week’s Mix It Up Monday Challenge!
What could be better than receiving a handmade card in the mail? Well, receiving it in a beautiful envelope of course! I have been on an envelope decorating kick lately! With 39 different colors available at the Gina K store, it's easier than ever to create beautiful coordinating envelopes!
Here are a couple of ideas to get you started...
Probably my favorite cards to keep on hand are thank you cards. For my sample, I used one of the flowers from Melanie's Stately Flowers 10 stamp set to create a simple monochromatic background. The large thank you sentiment is from the Massive Messages stamp set.
For the envelope, I just stamped the same flowers in two of the corners.
Here are a couple of colored envelopes. On the Jellybean Green envelope I used both the Stately Flowers 11 and Birthday Blessings stamp sets to decorate it. For the Turquoise Sea envelope, I stamped is using Theresa's French Flair stamp set.
I would love it if you played along! Share how you decorate your envelopes! Bonus points if you share the card that goes with it! :-)
Here are the challenge rules...

I rarely decorate the envelopes but admire those of you that do. It will be interesting to see what you all come up with and fun to try something myself.
I updated my original post with my photos!
I can't wait to see what you all come up with!!
Very nice can't wait to try create one of my own. I am excited to see what everyone come up with. Thank you for sharing.
HI Laurie: Your photos are lovely and the envelopes look really good. I can't seem to make the gallery link work though so not sure if there is a gremlin in there somewhere? Will have a go at this challenge as soon as possible.
