Designer Series – Happy Mail

May 25, 2016

Hello! I’m taking over Mama Elephant‘s blog with a card using Happy Mail and Venice Envelope.

The Venice envelope is just perfect for gift cards so I cut out an envelope from some pattern paper and put together an envelope that matches my Starbucks giftcard from Hokkaido. Using the stitched label die, I die cut a window and adhered a piece of clear plastic to showcase the beautiful gift card.

I created a matching card for the envelope. I first masked off a flag and blended some aqua ink directly onto the cardbase. Using white paint, I painted some polka dots on the card. I love using acrylic paint since it has this nice texture when it is dried.

I stamped out the delivery bus from Happy Mail as well as the letters from Incoming Mail and coloured them with my copics. I stamped “Happy Mail” using the sentiments from Happy Mail onto the delivery bus.
