Card Packaging

If you are looking for the Hero Arts Hostess Blog Hop please click here.

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!
