I preordered this little gadget back in February, and the company had delays in getting it out to vendors, but it finally arrived a couple of weeks ago, and I love it! I've made plenty of envelopes with my score board, but this is so much easier, and the end result is perfect and professional looking.
I got mine at Marcos Paper, and I believe they still have it in stock. (And no, I have no affiliation with We R Memory Keepers or Marcos Paper; I just love a good gadget).
One of my online groups is having a mail art swap, and judging from the sign up page, it looks like I'll have at least 20 pieces of mail art to get out. This is where the envelope punch board comes in. Like most of you, I suspect, I have piles of unused backgrounds I've made.....experiments, extras, even some journal pages I don't mind giving up. I've been busy turning them into envelopes, and with very few additions (some stenciling or stamping or bits of washi tape) they are ready to go postal as mail art.
Here are just a few. What do you think?
I used some of my favorite Wendy Vecchi stencils on these next few. I dabbed Ranger's Embossing Dabber right through the stencil, lifted it off, then sprinkled embossing powder over the image.
These were made from gelli plate prints on deli wrap or old music paper (reinforced by pasting the prints on cardstock), and more Wendy stencils:
Wendy's Mail Art stamp set is perfect for this project, and I'll be using elements from it on all my envelopes. Here's an example. (I also used the dandelion from her Botanical Art set.)
This one features a great stencil designed by Ronda Palazzari for The Crafters Workshop:
I love the stencil of people holding hands; I've had it for ages and use it a lot. It's from Retro Cafe Art.
If you happen to use paper that has art on both sides, you wind up with an envelope that is decorated inside and out:
I have a few more to go, and will probably add to some of these, but I've made a good start.
Oh, and by the way, the Envelope Punch Board makes MANY sizes, from the smallest gift card size to one that will hold a 6x8 1/2" card.
