And of course, I have some inspiration for you today!

 I love how creative some people are with their decorated envelopes! Their envelopes look so amazing! But even though I love seeing others decorate envelopes, it's not really something I enjoy doing, so I usually send out my cards in very plain envelopes.

However, I think I have figured out my new favorite way to use background stamps... to create envelope liners!

It makes the envelope feel fancy without having to have good handwriting. LOL!

Stamps used:

I started by stamping the Beach Background stamp onto some regular printer paper. I don't want my liner to add any bulk to the envelope, so the cheap thin paper is perfect!  I also didn't worry too much about perfect stamping since most of it will be hidden in the envelope anyway. 

Next I measured my envelope and trimmed my paper to fit inside. Since these envelopes have an adhesive tape on them for sealing the envelope, I trimmed my paper to fit just under the edge that tape. 

After sliding my paper into the envelope, I made a small tick mark where the crease of the flap is.

I then took the liner out and over to my score board. While I could have just folded it with the flap of the envelope, the score board will give a crisper fold.

To attach my liner, I slid the liner in the envelope, and added a thin line of tape across the top of the liner. This will be plenty of adhesive to hold the liner.  I then folded the liner down and pulled off the release paper from my tape.

I made sure the liner crease was snug against the envelope flap crease and folded the envelope shut to adhere the liner to the envelope.

I made a bunch of these cute envelopes to go with the cards I made for the release!  They are so quick and easy to do, and they give that little extra touch!

I'll be back with more soon... see you then!
