Decorate an envelope while you are creating your card. All it takes is a small piece of one of the patterns of paper you are using. For this card, I tore the bottom edge of the patterned paper before I attached it to the card front. I also colored the torn edge by inking it with Fluid Chalk stamp pads. This is a great way to give it a vintage look. Decorating the envelope was as simple as tearing a scrap of this paper and coloring the torn edge with the same stamp pads. This was cut the size of the envelope and glued to the front. Now all that is needed is the name and address added to the front. This will easily go through the mail or makes for a nice look if this card is being added to a present.
The greeting for this card is a rub-on from a set of rub-ons by Bo-Bunny Press. There couldn't be an easier way to add words to a card and this set includes a number of greeting that work perfectly for Christmas cards.

Beautiful! Love the envelope idea... I do this when I know I am not mailing the card out... although I am sure it would make it through the post office fine! Just adds a special touch to the card! (LOVE the papers!)
