Sweet Stamp Shop creation

Hello, friends:}

I'm back with another Sweet Stamp Shop creation. It's my day over on the SSS blog--so be sure to stop by there and leave some love! And today--I've decided to share how to dress up your envelopes for your Christmas cards:)

I just love personalized cards....you can make the color story match the recipient's favorite colors....you can use their favorite sport, hobby, etc. as the image...etc. There's so much you can do to make a card personalized. But what I noticed is that I never EVER dress up the envelope! It's always white or cream! Not anymore:) Well--at least not this Christmas!! I love this new idea of wrapping the address label around the side of the envelope! This is really easy to make!!! I used basic supplies, as well as several stamp sets from the Sweet Stamp Shop {Tree Traditions and Sweet Alpha Doodles}!! 
1. Use a decorative pre-made envelope--and skip to #2... or Create an envelope using patterned paper.
2. Cut a long strip of white cardstock. 
3. Round corners and attach to envelope.
4. Stamp recipient's name on front (leaving space to the left for decoration).
5. Stamp frame and your Initial on back of "address label" {I was going to put O'G but I really like just the O}. 
6. Stamp tree, fussy cut, add string and bow, and attach using foam dots. 

Ok--those steps look like a lot of work...but really, it was SIMPLE! LOVE how that tree turned out!!! Actually--I love that little frame too!! LOVE it all:) LOVE LOVE LOVE my SSS images! 

That's it for me today--Be sure to stop by the Sweet Stamp Shop blog for more info on this project and to see what the owner of SSSNicole, has been up to! There is a Cyber-Monday deal going on over at the SSS!! So be sure to check it out {click HERE -Deal goes live at 9am PST}!

Hi Sav!

This looks really great!! I must admit that I also never dress up the envelopes... I should, because it makes already the finding in the mailbox more fun for the receiptant, but I never seem to think of it. This one looks great!!! Love that label idea!

Hugs, Wendy
