'It's in the Mail' at Try it on Tuesday

Hi folks, yes It's in the Mail' and that's the challenge this fortnight over at Try it on Tuesday, where you will see we have some new Design Team members, so please pop over and and say 'hello'
I decided to make my little envelope and used papers from the Madam Payraud collection, which of course had to have a little distressing with Frayed Burlap.  My envelope started out as a strip of black card  29.5 x 8 cm.  I scored 5.5cm in from one side, cut the sides to make a flap, and then at 11.5cm in  from the other edge.  Used a Nesti circle to cut a 1/2 circle, before gluing the sides.

I made a little' address label' with some little element stamps from Crafty Individuals


And all tied up with some dyed string.

I am entering this at:
   All Crafts challenge - Anything but cards
  Crafting Musketeers - Anything but Square
  Moo-mania & More - Mail

My very talented teamies have some wonderful inspiration for this challenge, so please pop over to the main blog to take a look.

I love the aged look of your envelope and the fastening for it.
Reminds me of the old envelopes they used in Lawyers offices.
Hugs Mrs A.
