Here are my first 2 usable envelopes, which I have already used. They both are made using some retired DSP, but you could use anything, even wrapping paper! I do like the double sided paper, so when the recipient opens the envelope, the inside is beautiful too. My niece sent me a card with some photos in it a couple weeks ago and the envelope was double sided paper. For several days I kept opening the envelope and checking out the paper on the inside. It was so pretty! I try to always stamp something on my envelope so I am not sending a naked envelope, this just gives me another option. How to seal? How to address it? I used snail adhesive on the flaps that are at the bottom, after I put the card in the envy, I used some snail too for the top flap, you could really use any adhesive. As for the address on the other side of the envy, I used some labels that were being discontinued from my work 10 years ago, there were almost 5000 in the box back then and I haven't used that many over the years, maybe 100-200. I am giving anyone ordering the envelope punch board from me a couple hundred of those labels as a Thank You.

Retired DSP papers
The card uses the two butterfly punches, some of the washi tape from the Gingham Garden Washi Tape pkg. Oh my, that stuff is great for adding some color - quickly to a card or project.
The birthday is from the Remembering Your Birthday set from the catalog. I guess I should have used the stamp set, Papillion Potpourri since there is a sale...purchase Papillion Potpourri stamp set and the Bitty Butterfly Punch together and save 15% clear mount #135311 $26.27 a savings of $4.63 and wood mount #135312 #29.67 a savings of $5.23 A great deal if you don't own either of those items. But just for another week, ends Sept 30th.

This next card uses the circle card Thinlit die, new and not in any catalog yet, however you can order it. I have a lot of retired DSP, so for this card I decided to use up some of it. I also had just enough Lucky Limeade card stock (also retired) for the base of the card. When making this card, I wanted to layer it with DSP, but you need the circle framelit dies to cut the circle out and I don't have those yet, so I searched the Internet and found a video on making a layer without the circle framelits. It showed making the card horizontal instead of vertical, so that is what I did. It is not too hard to do, you just have to lay your card stock under, then over the thinlit die.
