This little snail mail project started out with some music themed wrapping paper. Then I decided since the paper was so thin that it needed a liner. Now , don't inspect too closely because it is dreadfully crooked. Stop it! I said, don't look ;-) Then, that liner set the theme for my yellow accent color. So I gathered a few journal cards that would fit the bill.
For this letter I got my dipping pen out and worked on my Spencerian Script and flourishes. I thought that I would top off this little letter in style. This is one of my favorite wax seals. It is a feather quill pen with an ink pot. So appropriate! A doily and some twine also seemed in order here.
I decided to add a spot of tea to my letter and I found this little "hello" dot banner which was left over from another project. And I had some left over liner scraps that I used up with my punches. This letter is coming together!
I didn't want the little dot banner to get messed up, so I put it in a little cello bag. Now it was time to get it all into the envelope. I looked around and found that I had recently purchased some colored tags.... ahhh....perfect!
So on goes the yellow tag with a bit of washi to secure it better and some yellow dot stickers. I love the stamps. This was a fun project that just kept evolving. It is going to someone very special. Bring some music , happiness, or just a quick note to into someone's life. You may never know how it will speak to another or lift them up for the day!
