good things come in tiny packages.

good things come in tiny packages.

I am so excited to share the new CSS release with you: an airmail background set, a tiny envelope die, a new party favor die, and a notebook edge die - squeeeee!  I had so much fun playing around with these goodies.

I used the new air mail stamp set, and tiny envelope die to create a tiny stationary set:

A brown paper package, all tied up with string,

filled with tiny airmail envelopes, and little spools of faux washi tape.  Some creative masking allowed me to stamp the navy&red airmail border around each envelope.  For the faux-washi, I backed a length of 1/4 inch simple adhesive with white tissue paper, and stamped the tissue paper side with images from the airmail background set.  When the adhesive is peeled off the back, the effect is translucent, like a strip of washi tape:

I love the "to" and "from" that I added to the front and back of the tiny envies - they are from "trendy tags" and the perfect little accents to this set.

On display is my favorite way to view this tiny gift set.

The tiny envelope die comes with a little insert die as well (how thoughtful of CSS! hee hee).  So perfect for little tiny love notes:

Hope you like it - at least a tiny bit ;)  Bonus points if you go back and count how many times I used the word "tiny" in this post...
