Envelope Art

For some reason, I like collecting envelopes. I enjoy using them in my art journals for pockets. So, I decided to take a few of my small envelopes and embellish them. Here's what I came up with:
These envelopes also make creative holders for gift cards or money. I turned the envelope into a house and added an image of a Victorian woman taken from a Dover book.
For the envelope below, I used a vintage doll stamp from RubberMoon but unfortunately, they don't sell this image any more. I used some vintage text paper to create her skirt.
The doll image below is from Catherine Moore's Character Construction, Inner Child stamp collection. I used vintage text paper again for the skirt.
And below is the famous "Julia" face. I always love using her face on projects. I just discovered Piero Rornasetti is the artist.
I hope I've inspired you to embellish an envelope next time you need to give someone a gift card or money!
Happy Memorial Day!
