2nd card for Make It Monday #100: How to Package Cards with Oversized Embellishments

HERE is the link from Nichole Heady's blog Capture the Moment to watch the latest Make It Monday video.  In this video Dawn demonstrates how to package those over sized or over embellished cards.  She gave three examples.  She suggests using the larger size envelopes called "greeting envelopes"  or the "specialty envelopes" are just a little bigger and would work for embellishments hanging over the sides just a bit.  She also used a glassine bag, which is probably my favorite, but I used all my large ones at Christmas!  And lastly she suggest just using the card as the tag for a gift bag by punching a small home in the corner of the card on the back flap and attaching it to the bag with twine or ribbon.
