I made these envelopes to send my latest ATC‘s for trading with my ZIA group. I had some paper that was close to craft color, so I used that. Some of the paper had a slightly gloss finish, so it was great for stamping and coloring. I used the Stampin Up Nature Walk set and the Stampin Up Sew Suite. I stamped the images with Stazon ink and then colored them in with Stampin Write markers using a blender pen. I cut the envelopes out on my Cricket about a month ago, but just decorated them a few days ago. I can use the plain plastic sleeves that are used for collecting baseball cards, but these are a little more fun. I don’t know if I will always have the time or energy to make the envelopes, but I did last month.
