Mail Art Month 2024 – Day 3 – Cardstock & Ink-Swipe Stripes

Happy Wednesday! For Day 3 of the Mail Art Month, I created a cardstock striped shaker card using Concord & 9th’s Pop Heart dies. For the matching envelope, I kept it simple and did an easy ink-swipe of ink cubes in the same colors as the stripes on the card.
