Mail Art Gone Postal

I am part of a Mail Art Exchange group and felt inspired the other day to create something for one of the ladies in the group. Above is the card I enclosed but in a Mail Art Exchange or Good Mail Day it's really all about the envelope. Hopefully the envelope brings smiles to people all along the postal journey from the artist's house to the recipient's door.

To learn more about the Mail Art Exchange project check out this post from Ginger's Life of Spice blog.

The idea grew from the book Good Mail Day by Jenny Hinchcliff and Carolee Gilligan.


  1. It'll make a fabulous "Good Mail Day" for someone!

  2. They will absolutely love it and it really will bring a smile to their face. Have a great weekend x

  3. That envelope should definitely brings some smiles as it travels around - very nice!

  4. That's a gorgeous envelope Beverly!
    Did you do the lettering on the card? I do love it :)

  5. It would be a glorious mail day getting an envelope like that! You did a beautiful job.

  6. I'm sure she'll be delighted - I loved the package I received from you :)
