How to Decorate Envelopes

Have you wondered How to Decorate Envelopes? Today I will share a fun way to share a little joy on an envelope. When you spend a lot of time on a work of art, why not make a fun envelope to let the receiver know that there is something good inside?

How to Decorate Envelopes

Using the new Happy Mail Stamps from Brutus Monroe, Detail Ink - Raven and a few other supplies create some super cool envelopes.

Supplies used:

Botanical Background Stamp
Brutus Monroe Rouge Ink
Brutus Monroe Detail Ink - Raven
Summer Chalk Shimmer Sprays
Protape - Artists Tape

Cut pieces of the Artists Tape and place in the To and From areas on the envelope.

Ink Botanical Background stamp with Brutus Monroe Rouge Ink and stamp envelope a couple of times. Don't worry if you don't get a good impression. This is just for decorative purposes.

Alternate look: Spray envelope with Sea and Sage Chalk Shimmer spray, stamp in the same manner.

Another idea is to create a watercolor background using ink pads and water. This technique will wrinkle the envelope. The details can be seen in this video.

A video was created with all the details.

Love these techniques! While I usually have at least one stamp on everything I mail, (even on bills!), the addition of the sprays and the watercolor are beautiful! Thanks for the great video!
