There are lot of elements involved in making this envelope ..and if you
haven't created one ... gets creative and have a blast ..... 

I am, using this Gorgeous paper set by Sherri Baldy... which I thought was perfect to create a bit Vintage & Shabby Chick Style 
using this beautiful ... & ... pearls ...& Butterflies... !

I did print all my papers on a normal A4 size and some journal card size 
Also enlarge the Butterfly and fuzzy cut around it 

Here is my DT Loaded Envelope
