"Postal Mail" – Postcard Envelope 6.5 x 4.5

This week’s Artful Times challenge #55 was "Mail Art."

This week’s Moo Mania challenge was "Mail."

I created a 6.5" wide by 4.5" high postcard envelope template that would be large enough to mail postcards in, using GIMP 2.8.10. Then I used the template to create this mail art envelope, printed it, cut it out, and glue sticked the edges.

My printer is low on ink, so the color didn't print uniformly on this. Then when I folded it, I was off a little, so the image didn't line up. Lastly, I got some of the glue on the front of the envelope, tried to wipe it off with a wet Kleenex, and ended up smearing/staining the ink.

The vintage images are from a DuckDuckGo search.

I thought the colour was meant to be there and it looked really great, then you said it was a mistake. Honestly I think it is brilliant and something you should do again in the future. Great work love it.

Well I can't see a smear and I think your envelope is delightful.
