The Art of the Envelope

We spent the weekend working on addressing our Holiday cards. We are in love with the calligraphy and hand lettered envelopes that are so popular. There is certainly an art to writing and addressing a creative envelope. Practice makes perfect.

Check out this amazing tutorial on envelope address hand lettering at Oh So Beautiful.

Are you familiar with Lettermate? Lettermate is such a handy tool. It is an envelope addressing guide for those of us that have trouble writing in a straight line. This tool is particularly great to use with our Real Wood Envelopes. Check out the Lettermate site for additional creative tips for addressing envelopes.

Check out our wide variety of wood envelopes in our online store. Envelopes are available in a variety of finishes and sizes.

Neat & Tangled Product Share with Real Wood Paper – Day 1

Hello and welcome to a super fun week of product shares. We’ve partnered up with our friends over at Neat & Tangled to share a few of a their new products and how amazing they work with our Real Wood papers. You are in for an inspirational treat!

Doily Envelope Die

Today we are sharing this Cherry Wood Envelope and stamped wedding invite made with the most detailed and intricate Doily Envelope die. This is a gorgeous die design and were smitten on first sight. Our Real Wood Paper looks amazing when it has been cut using this die.

We’ve created two intricate doily envelopes using our Real Cherry Wood and Birch Wood papers. These envelopes are stunning and this Doily die cuts our wood paper like a dream.

Calathea Stamp & Matching Die

We stamped the floral and fauna images on the bottom of this wedding invitation using the Calthea Stamp set and matching Calthea dies. The die images helped us create simple masks so we could overlap the stamped images easily.

We lined the backside of this wedding invite with Real Birch Wood paper. If you look closely you can see the wood grain through the front of the invitation. Our wood paper has an adhesive backing that makes it super easy to adhere to any surface.

Signed & Sealed – Wax seals on Real Wood Envelopes

Real Wood envelopes have a special presence and indicate something important is inside. We’ve shared some beautiful ways to address the front of our wood envelopes in the past. Read about that in our Art of the Envelope post.

Elevate the back of your envelope with an elegant wax seal. Wax seals can add a touch of value and permanence to letters, envelopes, packages and special documents. Add a bit of old-world charm to your correspondence.

 

E is for Etc. Paper.

You can purchase custom monogram wax seal kits online. Ours was purchased on Amazon.

Wax seals are not only for envelopes, seal any package. The hot wax adheres to all surfaces.
