Hybrid Card and Envelope Wrapper - Whimsie Doodles


I have been admiring the envelope wrappers that Michelle Wooderson (a.k.a. Mish Mash) has been sharing lately on her blog (you can see some samples HERE). Also our September Guest Artist at Whimsie Doodles, Donna Espiritu, has been sharing some great hybrid projects lately. Together these helped to inspire the project I am sharing with you today - a hybrid card and envelope wrapper set - using Halloween Minis from Whimsie Doodless' latest release.


Both pieces were created in Photoshop using echo park's Tricks & Treats digital papers. I used a couple of the papers to 'digitally paper piece' part of the Happy Haunting digital stamp image.


Once I had everything designed the pieces were printed out on a single full-sheet label. Both were trimmed to size, with the envelope wrapper having the corners rounded. The 'card front' I created was placed onto a Kraft card blank, and the label wrapper was adhered around a Kraft envelope.




This is what the back of the envelope looks like once the envelope wrapper is adhered. Not only is the return address here, but it also serves as an envelope seal by overlapping the back flap. The return address was printed with the label and the recipient's address would be hand-written.

Challenges used for this project:

I read Michelle's blog also. You did a great job on your wrappers. I really like the 'paper' you created. The colors are great with the kraft paper!
