Altering an ATC envelope

I am finally sending out my ATC's for my swaps.
I wanted to put them in nice packaging, but I didn't have any.
So I decided to alter some.























 The envelopes I used are bank envelopes.
They are thin enough for the ATC's to fit in there comfortably.
But I cut them down a bit.
Here is a tutorial I did on how I cut down my envelopes ;) Click Here






















I then wanted to add some colour, so I used distress ink and added some colour to the envelope.






















I wanted a vintage look that is why I used Vintage Photo to ink the background and then (my new) Chocolate Chip ink from Stampin' Up for the script stamp.






















I also made a pretty one with flowers :)






















Now I can finally mail off my ATC's tomorrow :)

I hope you all had a creative Thursday :)
