New policy envelopes !

Good afternoon to all my wonderful followers, I would just like to say a big thanks to everyone that visits me and leaves me comments, I read them all and I'm very grateful. 
So onto today's make. I was very lucky to be given some of the graphic 45 brand new staples from Jones crafts. These included the fabulous new policy envelopes. Wow love these ! I used Communique papers also by G45. 

The front....

The back

And then I decided to cover 3 of the g45 tags and use it like a tag book. 

Really enjoyed putting this together as its a something a little different that graphic 45 have brought to us. The typewriter die is from Christine Embersons online store and it's by spellbinders. The papers and other embellishments are from my favourite shop Crafty bunch. 
Hope you like what I have created. 
Take care, have a fabulous weekend xx
