Above is the front of a handmade envelope and the card that goes with it, on a bird/nature/art theme. This was made for my friend Carol Van Gerve. Now, Carol does not do email, but is quite the correspondent & she keeps me very busy (and happy) creating mail art! : ) All of the images I used are from ARTchix Studio; collage & faux postage images - I love those bird faux posts! I also added nature printing to the card and rubber stamping to the envelope before sending it off. I am still making good use of the embossed leaves I have from Alpha Stamps, as you can see I used one with a little glue, to help seal the envelope on the left side.
Here is what the card looks like, open:
I took a piece of scrapbook paper I had copied for my Bubbles ATCs and never used, and folded it around my card. It was a little short on the back, so I added a strip of tan cardstock and then decorated it with fun words from the Tell me a Story collage sheet by artchix studio. I added a number of rubber stamped images, and with a little extra postage (because of it's size) it was ready to fly to carol!
