Sweets! Yours turned out so much better than mine did! I have my envelopes stained and ready to stamp and decorate a new one but they are just sitting around for now till I have time to really work on them!
Its absolutely beautiful though!

Aww!!  Thanks!

What did you use to stain your envelopes?  I really had no idea what I was doing. Cheesy  I remember making some old scroll-looking paper in high school with coffee, paper and burning the edges, so I just ran with that.

I used old coffee grinds. I just smashed them all over the paper then used a paintbrush and a lil water to give it a different effect. I wish I had thought to weigh them down to flatten them, I just ironed them when they were dry LOL!

But yours was without a tutorial!  I saw Carol Duvall's before I made mine.  I don't think I could have figured it out (well, not without a few junk boxes first Cheesy).

Ha!  No mod podge here.
