I will, but I've only gotten halfway through the outer envelopes!  It's certainly time consuming, so start early.

i may have to if my printer won't print right on my envelopes!  i have one that i can do a test on, and i have a light box to lay them on top of...that should make it easier....hmmm....i might have to make a trip to get some calligraphy supplies tonight!


i had actually thought of doing this but a different way...by printing on a piece of paper and sticking inside the envelope and tracing that way, using the light box...same concept i guess!

i did a "trial" on a piece of cardstock that is not nearly as smooth as my invite envelopes....using the "tracing and lightbox" method....the nib i have may be too sharp...it would pull little strands from the paper....i'm going to try a fountain-style pen instead...
