(holiday inchies: artchix studios; patterned paper: dcwv, studio calico, crate paper, basic grey; stickers: creative imaginations; tape: recollections; rub-on: fancy pants; ink: colorbox; adhesives: staples brand glue tape runner, 3m foam tape)
i used this AMAZINGLY serendipitous sketch-- #175 from unscripted sketches; could there *BE* anything more perfect for using inchies??! i don't think so! :)
my original plan was to snip the inchie images from their sheet using my "postage stamp" decorative scissors, but it turned out the scale was just a bit too large and the resultant squares did NOT look like postage stamps, so i decided instead to use the third challenge option and decorate an envelope to match my design, which was totally fun, i need to do that a lot more often!
something you definitely do NOT have to do for the challenge is make an envelope from scratch! but (for reasons that are far to complicated and laureny to explain!) that actually IS what i did, and if you'd like to see the process step-by-step (??!) it's in the post just below this one!
or you could just hop over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and link up your own postal-related holiday card! this prompt is open until next wednesday evening, so you have plenty of time... and there's a fairly cool prize, so you have a great reason! ♥
