New ATC Envelopes and Matching 2.5 x 3.5 inch Cards

Share --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Well, I thought I'd 'play store' again today and created some, what I think are great little envelopes and matching cards for ATC artists now posted in Etsy!  (www.twodresses.etsy.com)

I love receiving mail where the sender has spent that extra bit of time to package things in a way that makes me feel like I am really and truly opening a present.  Know what I mean?  It just seems to make everything just sparkle a little bit brighter.

Here's a few snapshots of them.  I love how they turned out although I admit  I'm a little partial to tiny envelopes, I am hoping that I'm not alone!!!!  Can you tell I'm excited?

They print out so wonderfully well and I've tested each one to make sure the dots are all lined up and the images are of the highest quality as  possible for digital collage sheets.

Two of the three versions I created are specifically for ATC cards and are labeled just that as part of the design.  There is one that reads "4-YOU" so it could be used as a cute little card and envelope for any occasion.  And, considering you can print as many as you like, I think they're priced well.  I'm hoping so and if they do prove to be likeable, I'll keep at it and create more!  Thanks for looking.


"4-YOU" - Generic Envelope/Card 




ATC Envelope and Card - "Fleurs"





ATC Envelope and Card - "Violet Sky"


No surprise I guess, that I also felt compelled to try to create a fabric envelope out of the same design as the one above.  This will be sent out to a dear blog friend next week along with a sampling of each of the envee packs.

Your tiny envelopes are amazing, and the fabric piece is scrumptious! Your tiny envelopes have excited me too!!! You, My Dear, are an inspiration!!! Hugs, Terri xoxo
