Surprise for the postie
On Cardmaking Paradise we had a swap of a different nature. Mail Art! This was a new thing for me and it was great fun, can you imagine what some of the postal staff thought when they saw this highly coloured pieces of art passing through the system? There were no rules to this swap, we all decided on what size envelopes we wished to use although one thing that was kept in mind was that some of this Mail Art would be travelling abroad as some of the members of Cardmaking Paradise reside in Australia, New Zealand, Germany, USA, Spain, Portugal as well as the UK.
One other thing that I didn’t do (because it never occurred to me) but others did is to insert a piece of card inside the envelope to strengthen it before sealing the envelope – bear in mind that these envelopes are not meant to be opened!
These are the ones I created for the swap:
So many different stamps and inks were used including Distress Inks, VersaMagic Ink and Archival Ink.
This was such fun and so have a go!
Thank you for looking x
