Envelope art


Hello, friends! I want to share a matching envelope and card that I created for the latest Penny Black challenge.


First, the card. I stamped Amongst the Stars and colored the images with Copics. I used Reverse Wonky Rectangles to cut the card and the frame, which was stamped with Hero Arts Graph Background. The sentiment is from this Hero Arts set.

I added some Stickles to the largest star and  a few drops on the background. 




For the envelope, I stamped Mimi partially on the corner and colored her in the same colors as the card. 




I cut a cloud template and sponged the sky, then ink distressed the edges. I'm not sure how the postal system feels about glitter, so I just dabbed a few stars with some Stickles and my matching envelope was done.

I'm going to test the postal system and mail this out to a little friend. I hope it reaches her....wish me luck!


Stamps: Penny Black, Hero Arts
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink
Ink: Memento, Ranger distress inks
Other: Copics, Nestabilities, Stickles, pop dots

  18. This is absolutely gorgeous Donna! Love both the card and envelope! I especially love the clouds you made!
    Re the glitter... if you cover the Stickles with glossy accents after it isa dry, the glitter wont come off.
