Recently, a friend had a birthday so I decided to make the envelope as pretty as the card inside.
First, I chose a piece of pretty paper to adhere to the envelope. Next, I added a crystal paisley decor to the white part of the envelope as well as below the flower.
Then, I selected a pink seam binding ribbon and gold beading which I attached to the pin on the back of the flower. After, I simply pinned the flower piece to the envelope.
For added sparkle, I glued a large pink crystal to the middle of the flower.
Oooooooh, I just love all the pinks together. But of course, you can choose any color scheme you wish.
As a final touch, the recipient’s name is adhered with crystal alphabet letters at the top of the envelope. I truly enjoy making the envelope as special as the card. Of course, it’s a bit hard to mail this way!
And inside… a pretty cake topper ballerina card. Sometimes I print the sentiment on the inside of the card; other times, I use rub-ons for the sentiment and decor. On cards like this, I also add a small cupcake embellishment inside. And that’s it. Simple, yes?
