New Envelope templates (Standard A2 size) Two styles :O)

I'm so excite-ipated! These are my first non-hand-drawn templates (made entirely in Photoshop) I still suck at it technically (and it takes me forever), but the template lines are straight & even (at least I think they are) ;-D LoL

The new envelope templates &
a little blah-blah-blah about them:

-->There are two envelope styles here: side & top opening.
Both styles fit a standard A2 card size (4 2/8 x 5 1/2 inch card)
with room for layers on your card:

-->Measurements: Both styles of envelope measure 4-3/8" x 5-5/8"

-->They are sized to fit in clear acrylic card boxes.
(here's a set of top-opening (or tall ones) that I scalloped & embossed;
there are four of them in a thin acrylic card box on the left.)

and/or sized to fit in a handmade card boxes
like this 4.5" x 6" card box:

-->There are two template versions of each envelope style:
A) a template & B) a score guide.

(A) template

A) The template version has no dotted scorelines on it--you could use it for printing right on patterned paper or add your own patterns using Photoshop brushes (or fill with pattern.)

(B) Score Guide

B) The score guide version has dotted lines to show where to score & fold.

Hi Mel.
If you ever have Photoshop questions just let me know, I'm pretty proficient in the program. And I'm not sure how you're drawing your straight lines - with the line tool or the pencil tool, but if you hold down the "shift" key it should constrain them to either vertical or horizontal so you don't have to worry about eye-balling the straightness yourself. :)

Nice boxes and envelopes!! I admire your persistence into photoshopability.. (yes, that is a word LOL). Usually I would do these in vector like Illustrator, but I think they muddled all these programs together now into one lump. What a great idea with the print inside the box, totally love that!
