An Envelope and a Giveaway....

I know by now you have seen this fabulous set!  Sophisticated Script from Concord and 9th.  I recently posted some pics on IG and it was so fun to see the response....basically we all love this set!

My newest favorite thing about this set is creating envelopes.  (Michele....you asked me to spell out your name.....) ;)

The ease of putting these stamps together is amazing and you can create the most gorgeous saying, sentiments on a card and of course, an envelope.

Here is a quick shot of my last name too....

I have a quick video to show how I made a fast and easy envelope with the Lettermate and the Sophisticated Script set.  Hope you enjoy!



The giveaway has ended.
