Tuesday Tip: Dress Up Your Envelopes!

Welcome to tip Tuesday at Scrapbook Express. Here’s how to make your envelopes as pretty as your cards.

Line your envelope with paper that coordinates with your card. Die cut the edge of the flap using a Sizzix border or QuicKutz border. Use an inkpad to softly highlight your decorative edge. For an extra fancy touch, die cut a slim border of matching paper using the same die and adhere it to the back of the envelope. This tip is especially fun if you give a set of cards to someone as a gift. They can enjoy your pretty touches before they send off the cards!

Supplies:
Hampton Arts Gatefold card and envelope

Bo Bunny Block Party Dots Paper
