Monthly Mail Art with Kristina Werner – July 2018

Hello, all! Kristina here with another Monthly Mail Art! This month’s envelope is super simple and easy–just a few supplies!

I used a black envelope (any dark surface will do), the Line Dance stencil, and different colors of Gelly Roll pens.

First I taped the stencil to the envelope to keep it in place while I worked. I traced the stencil design with alternating colors of gel pen, making sure to avoid neighboring sections using the same color. I planned to use the center-left section as the area for the mailing address, so I outlined that section with a fine white Gelly Roll pen. I also added thin white stripes to some of the smaller sections.

After removing the stencil, I penciled in the mailing address and then went over it with a bold white Gelly Roll pen. Super easy and quick!

  1. This looks so cool Kristina. I love that graphic stencil and what an awesome way to use it! ♥

  2. Like the envelope art with dark paper & jelly roll ink. Was wondering if the actual envelope reaches the recipient undamaged & in normal time? Reason I ask is that I sent some envelopes I had decorated (not nearly as good as yours but decorated nonetheless) and it took over 3 wks to reach the person (sent from Central TX to: FL & GA).

  3. The card couldn’t be any
    better than the envelope.
    Happy mail at its best.
    thanks for sharing

  4. Love the vibrant envelope! Any tips on how to get the gelly roll pens to work? They’re not empty, just not flowing!

  5. Super cool! Love the graphic elements and how the pop on the black. Awesome how the name and address are tucked into the design.

  6. You’re so bold with your mail art. Not sure I would be that courageous to do what you do. I love how your envelopes come out and thank you for sharing your tips. I bought the gel pens and haven’t used them very much but this gives me some ideas.

  7. What a great way to use a stencil and… gell pens. A wonderful and awesome idea, I love this envelope. I have different kind of gell pens and a lot of stencils and this I can also use on a card! Thank you so much Kristina for an other great video!

  8. What a great idea to use the gel pens on black…and the geo.etric stencil is a perfect design choice. tfs

  9. Awesome envelope! Love the neon colors on the black and how simple it was to achieve such a great look. You always have the most interesting stamps too!

  10. Fabulous envelope! What a fun way to use a stencil like that too! Loved the neon pens on the black as well. So cool!

  11. Nice, but the post is surely thrilled to have to sort that with hand as that is not readable by machines.
