Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

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!

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.
