Hi peeps! I didn’t want this day to get away from me before finishing the project I started several days ago for the The Outlawz Twisted Thursdays Challenge. This challenge is always Anything Goes with an optional twist and this time the twist is Vintage. Our sponsor this month is Vectoria Designs. I had their free botanical envelope digital printed and just needed to cut, ink and assemble. I was thinking outside the box a bit and used part of the envelope design to make matching notelets.
To start with, I printed the envelope eight times on Hammermill 32# copy paper and created the envelopes themselves. I inked the edges and added Scor-Tape to the flaps. Then I created top-fold notelets from Twine cardstock and printed the envelope eight more times. I trimmed away all but the back of the envelope on each print to use as the front of the notelets. I adhered them to the notelet bases and inked the edges. I stamped the sentiment in archival ink and added one smoke-colored gemstone to the largest flower.
I left the inside of each notelet completely blank so there’s plenty of room for a custom message.
One more look… very happy with how these turned out! Love how they’re the perfect match for the envelopes!
