Thanks for the idea! I have sparkly brown envelopes and was not sure what to do.THANKS for the idea! I will definitely do this for envelopes to stand out. How did you write out the invites or addresses on the outside?

I was wanting to make my own envelopes using my cricut.  However, I wasn’t sure if it was worth the time it would take to put them all together.  Yours are beautiful!  Do you have any idea what the price diff is compaired to buying a premade set?

Curious question #1: Did you use a calligrapher for the “card” part?  I can’t imagine writing out that many!!!

Curious question #2: I cannot find a good card stock texture with our colors 🙁  I mean the are easy colors!  I’m thinking of doing the envelope in our yellow color and the papers in our (navy/marine) blue color..who would’ve thought marine blue was hard to find!? 

Curious question #3: How long should I set aside to make these?

 

I think these are the cutest STD’s!  I cannot wait to start making them!  I am definitely using this DIY idea!

What setting did you use for your iron?  I am very frugal like you too…..what’s the sense in buying a tool when you can use your own iron.

I need a little help here…..I tried the diy envelopes, only i’m using premade envelopes.  I got “Ultra Thick Embossing enamel-clear-  The crystals look more like sugar….should it be more like flour in thickness?  I tried it with the whole Iron thing…..nadda damn’ thing happened.  I may have bought the wrong stuff….any advice?I also tried to find the template to make the envelopes themselves( the plastic pattern( I went to micheals)  I couldn’t find, but I didn’t ask either.

You need a heat gun to use that embossing enamel. That works the best.

I wasn’t doing it correctly with the iron…..took me a few tries, but It worked out for me…not sure if I like how my colors are going to go with it, may end up doing something else…..with the embossing powder.

I have been trying to figure out how to use embossing powder/heating gun for months. And the iron…who would have thunk it (is that a word?).  Good info, maybe I’ll try it again now that I know what I am doing.

 

Thanks so much for this.
