The materials needed are: cardstock, colored papers, black pens, ruler, black archival ink, paper cutter, stamp, and glue.

Let's get stamping!

Step 2

Ink up your envelope stamp with a black archival ink and press really hard on your cardstock or paper.

What I used is my go-to carved envelope stamp that I utilize whenever I need to create really cool envelope embellishments.

I used also a purple paper for this activity since it is easier to fold than a cardstock. But it is really up to you, whatever kind of paper that is available will do.

Step 3

Then cut out the printed image as seen below. Make sure to carefully trim it as it will be the main element in your design.

Step 4

Using a ruler, create a line on the part where the envelope would fold. This is so you can achieve a nice and clean overlap.

Step 5

Then with your black pen, add a line following the edges of the stamp, so when you fold it over you'll get a realistic imprint of the image.

Step 6

Repeat the steps and make three envelopes with different colors. Make sure that the colors compliment so that it would be visually appealing!

Step 7

Stick the envelopes on to your card with an adhesive that you prefer. Mine is a glue tape for faster adhering and a cleaner look.

Step 8

Use your black pen to draw lines and join the envelopes together. This will create an illusion of a washing line.

If you have thread on your stash, you can use it instead for a lovelier effect!

Step 9

Write your sentiment on a piece of white paper, trim it off with your paper cutter. You can even add lines around it to give a nice and cute border!
 
Just a tip: Make sure you get the right pen. I suggest you use a thin black pen to get the words and the flow of your sentiment right.
