{Spotlight Project} Christmas Mail Art with Deepti!

Hello friends! Deepti here and welcome to another spotlight feature. I know we all love making cards but to have an envelop as beautiful as those cards makes a huge impact. For me, it's pure satisfaction and of course the fun of making them and the delight of mailing those to my loved ones is simply priceless :) With Christmas closing in , I decided to transform my envelops from white to bright ;) 

Here's the look...

Step 1
 Since these envelops are for Christmas cards, I decided to create some winter scenes. And for that I hand drew the snow hills. You can always use a wavy die as a guide to draw yours, if you are not too confident about the lines :)

Step 2
I then stamped the images that will be the focal of each scene and best for the winter cards. I also stamped a few winter trees to add more interest.

Step 3
In my step three, I simply used the distress inks in various combinations to make my winter sky. I was not too concerned about masking the images, coz in the end it will all look great.

Step 4
In my next step I colored the trees in green and drew some lines for writing down the address.

Step 5
In my final step, I did some more stamping along with the sentiment stamp on the back of the envelop

Here is a closeup of each of the envelopes :)

I have used Gone Postal and Houses Extras
