Patterned Paper Envelopes

Back in 2008 and I first discovered (and blogged) about the German penchant for using patterned papers inside their postal envelopes. But these are just amazing. From the outside, simply envelopes sent to the UK from Berlin in the early 1930s. Open them up and they reveal the most wonderful printed paper, with an ink that feels raised from the paper and has an almost poster paint texture to it. Delightful...

Those are simply gorgeous! Of late I've also taken to lining envelopes when I handcraft stationery. It seems so elegant and/or funky to me.

BTW, I'd love to try and arrange a chat or Skype talk with you at some point, hopefully soon!!
