Ok then the assembly:

 

I placed the envelope on the top and attached it with double sided tape (that way when the take it off they can use the tape to seal the envelope..)

I printed stickers in label sheets so they know it's an envelope

Okay Anny for those of us that are DIY challenged I have the following questions (sorry if the answers are obvious)

 

1. Where in the world do you get one of those embossing contraptions? I know they take time to make but is it hard to do or could someone like me emboss paterns onto cardstock?

 

2. Where did you get the template?

 

3. Can you tell me exactly what font style and size you used for each lettering?

 

4. Did the cardstock you used for the envelope come with that pattern?

 

Yeah I think that's it for now. LOL.

I got it at office depot here in Mexico but I'm sure they sell it at hobby lobby or michael's and yeah anyone could do it.. I've taught my mom so she could help me hahahaha

 

2. Where did you get the template?

 

The envelope template? I unfolded an envelope, scanned it and then drew it in Adobe Illustrator and the resized it

 

3. Can you tell me exactly what font style and size you used for each lettering?

 

The 2 fonts I used were Scriptina which is the calligraphy font and Taffy is the other.. The size was different for each envelope, depending on each name's length, the inside card font size was like 11 I think..

 

4. Did the cardstock you used for the envelope come with that pattern?

 

It isn't cardstock, it's decorative paper which is as thin as regular printer paper and yes it came with that pattern.. I scanned it to print the vellum with the same pattern but I changed the color in photoshop

 

Yeah I think that's it for now. LOL.
