Paper Artsy went postal and I was inspired to decorate envelopes for Christmas cards.

First, a subtle envelope for an adult card:

I masked the address area before stencilling the snowflakes with several shades of blue Distress inks (window stencil acquired in the pound shop!!!).
I stamped the script and another motif from the ESN10 set by Paper Artsy.

Second, an envelope I made from freebie papers and decorated with a bit of stencilling (Scribble by DecoArt) and stamping (the deer is from another magazine freebie but so old I can't remember which!):

I'll be back tomorrow for an additional envelope,
See you soon,
