Tips & Tricks - Studio Calico

Hey everyone! Recently, I was asked to contribute on a quarterly basis to the Tips and Tricks column on the Studio Calico Blog. I love Studio Calico kits, so of course I said "YES!!!" Today is my first post, and I am so excited to share it with you all.

As you know, I love to make cards- cards full of layers, texture, and dimension. Sending these types of cards can be difficult, since traditional envelopes are not made to protect them. So for my tip/trick, I am going to show you how to make your own dimensional envelopes perfect for sending thicker, layered cards. 

Here is the card set with envelopes I created:

You can download the PDF tutorial HERE on the Studio Calico blog. There are step-by-step instructions along with a few tips throughout. I used products from September's Central High Card Kit, Central High Main Kit, Style Guide Add-on, and The Register Add-on. The kits are gorgeous, and if you are interested in trying to snag some of your own, you can find them HERE.

I hope you get a chance to check everything out. Thanks so much for stopping by!
