Mail Art Month 2024 – Day 7 – Photo Card & Vintage Wallpaper Envelope

For Day 7 in Mail Art Month 2024, I created an envelope for a card I made using the February 2024 Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp.

To mimic the damask pattern on the patterned paper in the kit, I used a stencil to create a sort of vintage wallpaper look (the stencil I used is retired, but here’s a similar stencil). Since the damask pattern was a bit busy, I added a black border to Cindy’s name, and used long black rectangles for the address.


(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).

NOTE: Address used with permission. Thanks, Cindy! To submit your address for use on future mail art envelopes, please fill out this form. There is a new form each month to keep addresses current.
