Hello, all! I’m back again with your monthly installment of Mail Art! This month I did some simple masking, blending, and stamping.
(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).
I started with an Audrey Blue envelope (still one of my favorite Simon colors), and created a heart mask by die cutting some masking paper with one of the Nested Hearts dies. I placed the heart mask on the envelope, making sure to leave room in the top right color for the postage stamps. I blended two Distress Ink colors onto the bottom edge of the envelope: Mermaid Lagoon and Chipped Sapphire.
Then I removed the mask and was left with a perfect space for the address. I penciled the address in first and then went over it with a black pen.

The last step was to adhere the postage stamps. If you want to, you can further protect your envelope by applying Distress Micro Glaze to the envelope (be sure to skip the postage stamps since the Postal Service will need to cancel the stamps when your envelope is processed), however I didn’t do this step and it is optional.
Thanks for stopping by today!
