Pinkfresh Studio Washi Tape Mini Slimline Cards & Envelopes


Good morning crafty friends!

A couple of months ago I was fortunate enough to win the whole months release from Pinkfresh Studio. It included all the new washi tapes, matching stamp set and matching dies. You will recall I made a point of promoting the washi's as a way of gratitude of my winnings. Well, last week I was fortunate again to be a guest designer for Pinkfresh studio in an Instagram hop, which I spoke about in my previous post.

Today, I wanted to share the combination of these winnings and the new slimline envelope dies that were being released. I was curious to know how the washi tapes would turned out if I used them with the mini slimline envelope die. Well, they turned out pretty cool actually!

The mini slimline envelope die is the perfect size for one full strip of any given patter (if you know what I mean?). I love thick cardstock and I die cut the from panel of the envelope die with my 120lb white. But, as the crease for the back flaps was quite slim, I decided to cut the extra pieces in 80 lb white cardstock, this worked a treat! Its pretty on the other side of the envelope as when sealed, the white contrasts with the top and bottoom of the flaps and the washi florals. As the washi is quite shiny, using pen to address the envelope could be tricky. I have address stickers, which is what I would use if I was going to post the cards.

I love many uses out of my supplies and I like to share different ways you could use items. 

I hope I have inspired you!
