Postal Book Envelope

Today I've made my envelope for the CSF postal book. This is a C5 sized envelope. I used a lovely piece of Postcard paper to cover a manilla envelope, the edges of which I had distressed using a walnut stain distress ink pad. I inserted an eyelet, and brad to enable the envelope to be fastened with a length of fibre. For the insert I did an encaustic art picture to make a postcard. On the reverse I wrote Postcard and drew a stamp to give the impression of a picture postcard. The address and message contain subtle references to CSF and it's 2nd birthday :)
