This week’s Make It Monday focuses on the part that most stampers forget about: the envelope. It is technically about the different ways to package cards that have embellishments hanging over the edge, making it a challenge to find a suitable container for mailing, delivering, etc. Not only does Dawn give some great ideas for packaging a large card, she also gives some neat methods for decorating the outside of the envelope. Now, this card was put in a box that was to be mailed, so I didn’t have to worry about my die cut roses falling off in the mail. I also used a few flourishes from Fancy Flourishes to help tie in the pink and aqua color scheme.
