this one makes the unusualities category, too, because it is unusual to put this much time into (onto) that kind of envelope. are they called manilla? have not heard that word in a long time. i'll research and get back to you. she used white colored pencil around the lettering to offset the color of the envelope. that is a great idea to keep in mind if you find that the lettering is not working very well with the color of the paper.

this is what wiki says about manila or manilla:The manila component of the name comes from manila hemp or abacá, from which manila folders were originally made. "Manila" refers to the capital of the Philippines, one of the main producers of abacá, which is itself named after the Indigo Tree (Scyphiphora hydrophyllacea) a shrub called "nilad" in Tagalog as the name means "there is nilad".

they also call this type of envelope beige. that is not beige. i don't know what color to call it. but it is not beige.
