Colored envelopes

I'm a big fan of color coordinated envelopes when designing an invitation suite! I love the options at Paper Source but we don't have one close by. So recently I set out on a hunt for navy envelopes locally. Man oh man I had no idea it would be a difficult task. 

Micheals & Hobby Lobby had very few options but I actually found what I needed (well kind of) at JoAnns. I wanted to tell y'all about the ms. Sparkle & co. Paperie line there. They have some really pretty colors and a selection of coordinating cards & envelopes in a number of sizes. So next time you want to find some pretty card sets, go check them out!!

Below is what I'm using for a dear friend's baby shower. I was initially bummed that I didn't find enough envelopes in one color but have since embraced the blue & green hues and run with it! 

The envelopes themselves are pretty good quality. Again I prefer Paper Source paper in general because of the texture but these are going to work in the time crunch I'm in! They are slightly slick so I have had to modify my ink a bit so that it shows up! But I just love this Tiffany blue color with the white ink!
