Today I have spent time packaging up stamps from my collection that I am selling. I haven't used them in quite a while and I am running out of storage space. So hard as it is for me to let go, the time has come to thin out my collection. I am also working on a project for hubs. When complete I will have use of all the space in my craft room/office/dressing room. Then I get to redecorate and make this room more functional for me.
So back to the sold stamps, I am including a little thank you note inside each package. I am getting a lot of use out of the Casual Fridays stamp set Big Thanks that I bought used about a year ago. I also got out my We are Memory Keepers envelope punch board and made some cute little envelopes for my cards.
The size I wanted was not included on the punch board, but a bit of trial and error with printer paper was all it took to figure it out. I will share those dimensions below.
Here are my cards to tuck in with the purchased stamps. I hope they bring a little smile to the recipients.
I cut 2 inch strips from cardstock along the 8.5 inch side (5 strips make 10 cards), then trimmed the strips to 2 by 4 inches. I scored them to be top folding. Next I stamped them with Versamark ink and added a coordinating embossing powder to match the envelope. I made 8 of them with envelopes in about 20 minutes. In the photo each card is sitting on its respective envelope.
Envelope dimensions - cut a 4x4 inch square and score the first line at 2 inches. If you want a slightly bigger envelope, a 4.5 by 4.5 inch square scored at 2-1/8th inches will give you an envelope to fit a 2.5 by 2.5 card.
Thanks for stopping by!
