Today I have a card and envelope ensemble to share with you.  There is a cool new Stitched Envelope Liner Die that makes your envelopes so pretty and adds such a nice surprise for the recipient when they open up their envelope!  Did you catch that it is STITCHED!  So fun!  Along with that there are some wonderful quality envelopes in the LID store now too!  They are nice and smooth and almost seem semi glossy.

To continue on with the envelope theme, there are some cute, cute new envelope dies and stamp sets to go along with them, including new word dies which everyone seems to love (me included).  For this card I cut my vellum with the Stitched Mats Rectangles dies to partially cover the stripes.  I embossed the "Happy Mail" sentiment from the new Sending You stamp set and adhered the "sending" word die that is included in the Mini Envies & Accessories Die set .

That little envelope is the smallest in the Envie Die set.  To make this envelope appear to be open, I cut it out once with the yellow polka dotted paper, and then twice with white paper.  I layered the yellow paper on top of one of the white die cuts (with the yellow flap piece cut off to show the white "inside") and then cut the flap off of the 2nd white die cut envelope and attached it like an open flap.  The stars flying out of the envelope are also from the Envie die set!

There is another cute stamp set that coordinates with these new envie products called Send Pretty Mail.  It is such a wonderful creation and is intended to help you dress up the outside of your envelopes, but there are lots of ways to use these on your cards too!  There are lots of different options and I kept my envelope fairly simple and in line with the colors I used on my card.

Of all the stamps in the Send Pretty mail set, this is my favorite!  I HAD to use it on my envelope.  I embossed it in gold and it just adds an elegant little touch to the outside of the envelope.







AND...there's one more little secret!
