Altenew – Coin Envelopes

Coin envelopes by @enzamg for @altenew. #envelopes #coinenvelopes #stamping Hello, Altenew fans. Enza here, and today I am bringing you a new project idea that is fast and easy to recreate.
You might have noticed from my previous blog posts how much I love pretty packaging. A gift is not complete for me unless I add a personalized touch to it. What I am sharing today is decorated coin envelopes, which are very good options when it comes to giving gift cards, cash, or a special note. I used an envelope maker here, but you can find many templates online that can be easily traced and cut out.

Let’s start!

For the first example, I used one of the gorgeous patterned papers from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection.

The sentiment, which was heat-embossed on black cardstock with Pure White Embossing Powder, comes from the Layered Cupcake Stamp Set, while for the foliage I used the Envelope Liner Die Set.

I alternated green and gold glitter leaves for a touch of shine and finished the envelope with two yellow brads.

The second envelope features a pattern that was entirely stamped using the Folksy Florals Stamp Set.

I also thought it would be cute to add some dots here and there and the Lavender Fields Crisp Dye Ink was perfect for those.

To bring in more of the lavender color, I decided to stamp one of the flowers with Lavender Fields and Deep Iris, and add it to the closure. Here the sentiment also comes from the Folksy Florals Stamp Set.
