My first letter for the Happy Mail Project. Letter #1 was sent to Ms. Lily Moon in the UK. The envelope was hand cut from a sheet of vellum and adorned with a hand stamped butterfly, calligraphy, and washi tape. I like the sheerness of vellum and how it lets what's inside show through, it adds more interest, and yet is not so flimsy like glassine. In the envelope I enclosed lavender colored stickers on which I wrote Lily's name. I hope she likes it.
I got to the post office on the day of the postal price increase and my envelope ended up costing me almost $10 to mail! A few days before my trip to the post office I had only affixed $2.13, as per online estimate, oops! I wish I could've taken a photo with the rest of the postage, I thought it looked cool. Hoping to capture the full postage on my next project envelope #2 for Ishtar.
