Stationery Scandals: Vintage Postal Theme

Vintage Postal Theme

Here is some more of my creations for stationery.  I recently visited our RVA stamp store...and what a visit I had!  I will have to share in a later post about my finds.  But among other things I was able to pick up some bulk vintage stamps (already off the envelopes), very convenient for craft purposes.    So it's time to get out your snail mail tools and get to work!  I collect a lot of vintage postal ephemera , so while looking over these and my vintage postal washi tape, I decided that would be my design theme.  The paper, also is a cream color instead of a white.  Do you have some old cancelled stamps?  This would be a good project to use  on  this stationery .  The red label (which I use very frequently in my mail art) can be purchased at the Dollar Tree!  Yay!!! Vintage--ee  looking and cheap!

The paper is just decorated with a few glued on old stamps, sort of scattered on the boarders.  The tag was very simply made by just gluing on some old stamps on a Kraft tag.  The rest of the envelope art is just vintage stickers.

Have fun making and SENDING your own designed stationery to someone who will really be wowed by it.
