Lettering, Mail Art

EASY Holiday Mail Art Design!

NOTE: This post is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp.

I’m back with another installment of Monthly Mail Art! For this month’s envelope, I used an itty bitty stamp set from Lawn Fawn, Oh What Fun!

(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).

First, I stamped the sledding bear from the Oh What Fun stamp set in black ink on an Audrey Blue envelope. I drew a slope for him to be sledding on in black ink as well. I then colored the bear and the snowy ground using Faber-Castell Polychromos colored pencils.

To create a more dramatic sky, I blended Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink from the top of the envelope (and a bit from the bottom as well).

I wrote the recipient’s address in white gel pen, and added falling snow (or stars!).

NOTE: Address using with permission. Thanks, Kelly!

I finished off the envelope by adding postage stamps and my return address on the flap of the envelope.

Thanks for stopping by today! :)

    I love it and just can’t wait for a whole week of mail art… I never thought much about envelopes until the first time I saw your mail art, now sometimes I enjoy doing envelopes more than cards haha…

    While I love almost everything you do, Mail Art is my favorite topic. I LOVE decorating my envelopes for an extra special card. Happy holidays Kristina!

    Again an awesome envelope, it realy is mail ART. Every time when I see your beautiful envelopes I think, that is such a cool idea that I actually have to do. Unfortunately at the moment that I need an envelope, he is blank.
    Perhaps I could make a few in advance. Thank you so much for sharing Kristina and I hope you still enjoy your holidays.

    Beautifully done! Wish I had the time to do all my Christmas cards with artwork on the envelopes. Just not enough time in the day. Thanks for another fun video and project.

    I just love that little bear. I own him and used him on several cards this year. But, I made him a slider down the hill. So cute.

    I wouldn’t even need a card if the envelope was that cute. The extra stamps
    make it more interesting too.

    Really, really cute.
