Studio Snapshot – Lettering Envelopes For My Holiday Cards

With my Christmas Santa cards done (see DIY Torn Paper Santa Holiday Cards), I’ve switched my focus to lettering the envelopes in which to send them.

I decided on shades of red for the calligraphy on the envelopes for my Santa cards.

Looking at my Santa cards, I decided I needed to letter my envelopes in reds. I started with a light red and went back in with a darker red. Then I outlined the letters and embellished them a bit. And I added hearts, just because I thought they added just the right amount of additional red that was needed.

I think they look great. Now to finish addressing them and get them in the mail. A number of them are going overseas, so I hope they arrive in time.

Enjoy, Candy
