Two in One: Christmas Card and Envelope

Hi! It's Gracie posting today. Who doesn't love a 2 for 1 offer? Well, today I have a 2 in 1 project I made with a printable from Ewe-N-Me! Basically I am talking about one single digital file that can be cut and used in many different ways.

I made a card and an envelope from Cocoa/Treat Envelope - Holiday Kris 101.  I printed the file twice, once on regular white bond paper and once on white cardstock. I cut the one printed on paper as it comes originally, to make my envelope. And then I cut the one printed on cardstock trimming all the flaps, so I was left with a note card.

I did print the file for the note card slightly smaller so it would fit on the envelope. You can do this by simply adjusting the printing size to 95% (or smaller if you wish). These options pop up right before printing the pdf file.

As you can see the note card will have a nice image on both sides, as well as the envelope. I really love how they look. This is a simple and pretty way to add a personalized card to a Christmas gift and, the vintage image is lovely, I must add!

I hope you like the project, and try it out yourself. Usually people think these printables use too much ink, but they don't necessarily. I invite you to visit Ewe-N-Me Printables store and take a look at all the new items that have been added.

Thanks so much for stopping by everyone! Have a nice weekend!

What a great idea Gracie, thanks for sharing! And given the cost of cards in the store, I'd say printing them out is way cheaper!
