The goal of these envelopes was extra flourishing on the names. I sketched things out in pencil first to decide how everything should look and then practiced in pointed pen first.

I LOVE flourishing. I am flannel, jeans, camping kind of a girl but oh my, the more flourishing the better. A lot of times I’ll show my husband something I’m working on and he’ll look so apologetic and say, “I can’t really read what it says.” I’m like, “Who cares?! That’s because of all the flourishing!” hahaha 🙂 But with an envelope that has to get to its receiver, uh, I guess you better be able to read it. Dang! LOL

Using a laser is such a great hack for dark envelopes! No pencil lines, yay! The envelope template is from The Postman’s Knock.

So mint green envelopes and walnut ink have anyone else craving Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream?!? My favorite!! (Envelopes from Paper Source and Ink from John Neal, Bookseller.)
