Papertrey Ink is having a challenge about packaging cards that are too large for regular sized envelopes. There's a video showing how to decorate envelopes to make them a little more fun and how to use and decorate a glassine bag for oversized cards. I love the glassine bag idea and will have to buy some for my stash.
Since I didn't have glassine bags I custom made an envelope to match the size of my card. This envelope is 5.5 x 7.5, is made from thin cardstock and I stamped it with some of the same images I used on the actual card.
Because I knew I was hand delivering this I added acetate butterflies and gems to the envelope, which I think makes it extra special. I also thought it would be fun to add a sentiment and round 3 of the corners. Something a little different.
Thanks so much for visiting today!
