The Lowly Envelope

The poor lowly envelope often takes a back seat to the fancy invitation inside. It's been a goal of mine to try to find a way to fancy up envelopes to match their beautiful contents!  And not just with calligraphy, which is an easy out. Here are a few that I've found that fit the bill.
(Gold foil dots. Really elegant.)

(Only concept right now. But how cool! The route between the 2 addresses is mapped!)

(Ahem, leather lined envelopes with a thread closure. 
Not sure how these would make it through the mail unscathed...)

And for an extra bonus, here is a woman mailed herself 130 envelopes embellished with pictures and even a crossword. It turned up in her mailbox with the note "Solved by the Glasgow Mail Centre."  I love this so much I might have to try it out myself!
