I am still on the journey to creat 12 variations of envelope customization and personalization. I think I am quite half way there with about 4 prototypes given away as presents.
Earlier this week, I received some enquiries about making a card case with 2.5mm depth, 8.9cm width and 5.7cm height. After laying out some questions to get more design direction, the customers actually wanted it in my ENVELOVE design. It’s a pretty small case, smaller than my usual card case.

Well, an excuse to make myself a new purse, as fixing the color takes more time, and I don’t want to dye it black.
This is a rustic looking piece of leather, and I decided to sew it with multicolor thread. I am quite delighted with the combination.
