DIY matching envelopes for greeting cards

Hello everybody!  I hope you guys are well.  I wanted to share this little idea I had with you.  Every time I want to send a small greeting card to a family member or friend, I 95% of the time include a picture with my message, but the accompanying envelope is usually too small to accommodate the picture, so instead what I do is make my own envelope.

I received a cool set of blank cards from my cousin and I wanted to make matching envelopes so I scanned the front of the greeting card and saved the image, opened my word document with my saved envelope template (AOL search or Google), inserted and fixed the image to fit properly in the middle, and printed it out.

All you have to do is cut out your envelope, fold and glue it up.  For this design, because it had a dark background, I inserted white rectangles, while in word document, so you can see the address part as well as the stamp.  I prefer clear address labels, but you can use white labels to make the boxes as well.  You always want the post office to be able to see your mailing information clearly.  I hope you guys like this idea.  It does have endless possibilities.

Take care all.  Until next time…

  1. I was fortunate enough to receive one of these beautiful envelopes with our thoughtful anniversary card. Thank you so much for always thinking of us and spending the time and energy it takes to be creative and add that special touch.

    • Hi Francine, I’m glad you got the card. I hope you guys had a great anniversary. How are you doing? How are the kids? Olivia is doing so good in school. She comes home telling me everything she did & everything the other kids did, especially the ones who are misbehaving. 🙂 I have to remind her to stay focus on what she is doing. How’s Gabby doing in her school & how’s your baby boy? I want to see updated pics of him. When you can of course. Well, take good care and tell Jorge we said hello. Hugs & kisses to all, your friend Angie
