Mama Elephant-Happy Mail & Venice Envelop

Hi there! Today I’m sharing a fun little gift card sized card & envelope on the Mama Elephant blog featuring the new Happy Mail stamp set along with coordinating creative cuts as well as the new Venice Envelop creative cuts.Mama Elephant-Happy Mail & Venice EnvelopeFor the backgrounds on both my mini card & envelope, I blended in distress inks in Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon & Cracked Pistachio followed by flicks of water with my Mini Mister.Mama Elephant-Happy Mail & Venice EnvelopeI used post-it tape to mask off the sides while blending the ink on the front of the envelope.Mama Elephant-Happy Mail & Venice EnvelopeI layered up several of the word die cuts that are part of the Venice Envelope creative cuts using spray adhesive and colored a few images from Happy Mail using Copics.Mama Elephant-Happy Mail & Venice Envelope
I embossed a sentiment from Happy Mail and adhered it along with the cute panda image with foam tape.Mama Elephant-Happy Mail & Venice EnvelopeThe back of the envelope has some fun details as well which are all accents included in the Venice Envelop creative cuts. I added the silver eyelets to the envelope closers. This is such a cute way to package up a gift card or even give a lunch box note. Thanks so much for looking!
