Mail Art Month 2024 – Day 1 – Clean & Simple Card + Masked Stripe Envelope

NOTE: This post is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp. Thanks, Simon!

Hello, all! Welcome to Mail Art Month! All throughout the month of January 2024, I’ll be creating and sharing custom envelopes to go along with cards.

For this first video, I created a clean and simple card with the Faux Mini Envelope die from Simon Says Stamp. I ink blended onto the mini envelope diecuts and added patterns using CZ Design’s Mini Slimline Patterns stencils. I then used the same inks and stencils on the matching envelope for the card.
