Nothing tops off a personal, handmade card better than a coordinating, hand-decorated envelope. I’ve created these before and the recipients love them! There are tons of wonderful ideas that I encourage you to check out on Pinterest.
Today I wanted to create a piece of mail art on a Kraft envelope. I had seen it done with Sakura Gelly Roll Pens and I really liked the results.
First I drew the banner with a White Faber-Castell Pitt Big Brush Pen using a French Curve. Then I added a swirl on each side and closed in the banner with vertical lines. (See photo below).
Since I wanted to design around the address, I wrote that in next with a Staedtler Fineliner, using my Johnson Laser Tool to keep my lines straight. I drew simple flowers with the Moonlight Gelly Roll Pens and some BIC Metallic Markers so that they were coming up and around the address and banner. I also added some stray flowers and dots. Then I wrote the name in the banner itself with a Pilot Futayaku Double-Sided Brush Pen. (For this example, I used my own name and address) 🙂
Have a great day!
