Tip #2
Decorate your envelopes with pearl or shimmer sprays.

Tip #3
Stamp scenes on your envelopes before mailing.

Tip #4
My friend always uses the stamp she used for her card on the outside of her envelope to have a matched set.

Tip #5
Trim the envelope flap with decorative scissors before sealing to get a decorative edge.

Tip #6
Use envelopes glued together by their flaps to make accordion books.

Tip #7
Cut flaps off larger envelopes and glue them together at their centers. Add a cover to form an accordion holders to store your standard cards.

Tip #8
Line the flap of the envelope with paper to coordinate with your card.

Tip #9
Stamp across the bottom or the flap of the back envelope with a long stamp or a roller stamp. It will help to coordinate your card and envelope but won't interfere with postal processing.
