I loooove sending mail, and I especially love sending mail when it contains our Christmas Cards! This year we ordered our Christmas Cards from Tiny Prints and I could not be more in love with how they turned out. They have a cute gold foil trim and I think it's the perfect detail.
As I'm sure many of you will be sending out your Christmas Cards, I wanted to share some fun ways to hand-letter your envelopes!
Option one is done in watercolor! This is more of a classic Christmas look with green and red colors. I love the little touches of color that the garland design adds to the envelope. I think this would also be really pretty with gold paint on a red envelope!
Option two is more of a minimalist look with both watercolor and pen. I think this design is closest to what I would normally do for our personal cards. I love the simplicity of it!
Option three is even more minimalist and done with a sharpie pen, so anyone can do it! I think this is by far the easiest design, and if you have a lot of cards to mail out, it's perfect for saving time!
Option four is probably my favorite! I used a gold Sharpie pen to create the branches on the sides and watercolor for the design in the middle. I love all things gold, so this trim was perfection to me! I also loved how well it matched the Gold Foil on our Christmas Card.
Option five is another watercolor option, but with a fun pop of color! I used a deep red, but it would be fun to use different colors for each person, based on their personality! I loved how these came out - how special would you feel if this was in your mailbox!?
Tiny Prints offers the option of having your return address printed on the back of the envelope, which is just perfect for using up the whole front of the envelope for design! We also got our fun personalized postage here, and opted for the tree pattern for the lining of our envelopes.
I hope these ideas inspire you to hand-letter your envelopes! I'd love to see what you come up with - if you share on social media tag me @pienthesky!
