Holiday Happy Mail

2017-11-14 06.55.49DMC

Hi friends! For many, this is the time of year when we send cards and letters to loved ones, to let them know that we're thinking of them. Today I'm going to share with you an easy way to make that happy mail even merrier!

I started with white card stock that I coated with a light layer of gesso. Once it was dry, I used stencils from the Stencils 101 Collection and a Red Cherry Gelatos.

I used various stencils from the same stencil collection and repeated the same technique on 3 pieces of card stock. To give my greeting cards a more rustic look, I hand tore the edges to give them a nice deckled edge.

Once they were trimmed to size, I used gel medium to adhere the torn decorative card stock to the front of a plain white greeting card.

I repeated this same step for all three cards.

Next, I used the Holiday Pitt Pen Set to decorate white die cuts that I cut using my personal die cutting machine. If you don't have a cutting machine, you can find a nice selection of die cuts at your local craft store.

The Holiday Pitt Pen Set comes with red, black, green and gold Pitt Pens, and I just went for it, losing myself in doodling colorful patterns.

When I had my die cuts doodled on, I used dimensional sticky dots and adhered them to each of the cards.

Thanks for joining me as I created handcrafted holiday happy mail that's sure to brighten anyone's mailbox!
