karen's winter exchange

on dec 27, i posted one from karen to jan and karen left a comment that she gave up on broad edged names after trying two. i really think this is marvelous with a simple mono-line address. the whole design is charming. and those mailboxes on the bottom are *insane* (the way young people say that, meaning insane in a very good way)

love it

  1. Thanks, Jean. I enjoyed creating this envelope VERY much. While all of my winter exchanges were fully watercolored, they were for the most part very different from each another. The trouble I had with the broad edged pen lettering on the other envelopes was not getting crisp lines on the painted surface. On this envelope, the monoline address was a deliberate design decision.
