Scandinavian Flower Envelope Art

Getting some fun mail in your mailbox can be such a pick me up, which is why envelope art is so rewarding to do! I love dressing up envelopes for the mail I send to my friends. I usually do something easy and quick, and this way they have a little splash of colour between all the bills and junk mail. I’m excited to share with you a fun Scandinavian flower envelope art tutorial using the awesome stencils from StencilGirl and some great inks from Imagine Crafts!

How to Make a Scandianavian Flower Art Envelope

Step One

To start, cover the envelope with a light layer of gesso using a palette knife or a plastic card. Make as many layers as you like – I’ve done two on mine!

Step Two

Use the dot stamp and the Smoky Gray ink, lightly stamp all over to create a background.

Step Three

To create the two-tone flowers, I covered up the flower part of the Bold Flowers stencil and stenciled the stems with a cosmetic sponge and Deep Lagoon. Then I switched the paper to stencil the flower with Habanero or the Electric Coral. The ink stays wet for a while since it’s going on a non-absorbent surface, so try to be careful! I dried each flower with my heat gun in between because I am notorious for smudging my work.

Step Four

Next, use the black and white pens to draw details on the flowers! You can make them all the same, or mix it up like I did below.

    I love writing letters and love to decorate the envelopes! Getting "fun" mail in the middle of a million junk things and bills is a sure fire way to help someone smile! Great tips! -Maddie Jaques
