Sometimes you can find some real bargains in our local Walmart store's markdown aisle. I keep my eyes open for marked down invitations and envelopes, hoping to find some at a really good price. I go through thousands of envelopes each year making cards for Operation Write Home and Cards for Soldiers so I love a bargain!
Recently, I found a large stack of Thank You notes with envelopes for around .25 per package. I knew I would never use that many notes but they were A2 size, so I grabbed them all just for the envelopes inside the packages.
These are obviously intended to use as wedding gift thank you's since they have the entwined hearts.
The gold frame around the edge looked like something I'd use for more formal type cards so I used a ruler and cut it out.
It's just leaning on a colored card base so it's easier to see. I think it looks pretty good!
These will add some nice detail to my cards, don't you think? And, I'm counting them as "free" since I bought the packs of notes just for the envelopes!
There were also multiple packages of some bright pink colored Thank You notes. I cut the solid card backs off and tucked those into my pink cardstock stash. They'll work for Cricut cuts or for scraps to test my stamps.
