A Little Bit Of Glimmer // Holiday Themed Mail

Hello lovely people! How are you this fine day?

After a month or two of slacking in the pen pal realm of things, I have decided to jump back in full swing with Christmas themed art and addresses! Ahh, I love making pretty Christmassy envelopes, so fun!

For this first one, I wanted to experiment with another texture, and I remembered I had these small red buttons I ad been saving for such and occasion. I drew poinsettias, the name and address, then randomly glued a few buttons down. I love the added texture, and it

I continued the same design, buttons and all on the back. I feel like doing a little something on the back makes it more complete. But really, any chance to do art is a good chance, right? (:

I packed up a little Christmas package to a secret Santa giftee, and did a similar design to the last on this, though a bit more simple. I just did four poinsettias and leaves and some loopy lettering. I have a clear glitter gel pen I love using on uh.. everything, so I used it on this, too. XD I love how vibrant these yellow package envelopes are, so fun to do art on!

This one is a bit more original: Holly and Berries(: I really like this one. Super simple, and cute! If you have two tones of the same color pens or markers, one a bit darker than the other, you should try fading or creating ombre in your font. I love squeezing this in for a little extra sumthin’ (:

This one is very similar, thought the font is more from and center, rather than the design. Come to gaze upon it, this is almost a replica of the prior envelope, just less greenery. Sometimes simple is fun, too! Do you go all out on art (of any type) or more minimal?

I did the same everything for my return address, but to seal the envelope I glued some buttons down. I think buttons or string or flowers or anything of that sort are a fun, unique and creative way to add some fun texture and other elements to letters. What do you think? How would/do you seal an envelope?

Well, that is all for now. I hope you enjoyed! And please don’t hesitate, leave ideas and suggestions in the comments, I’d love to hear what you think! ❤

Have a glorious day, and remember, Jesus loves you and cares about you, in whatever state you are in!

Do you write letters? What is your favorite design from above? What is your favorite kind of cookie? Do you like Thanksgiving or Christmas better? Gum or mints?
