This month is Letter Writing Month here at The Paper Place; and who doesn’t love getting a little something special sent to them in the mail? I recently made some vintage inspired stationery for some dear pen-pals of mine.
I think that the Gampi Silk Tissue is probably one of my favourite papers right now. It kind of reminds me of old onion skin paper, which I love. I backed it with a piece of cardstock, attaching the two with Airmail Divine Twine. I used small rubber stamps for the text; which remind me of a vintage typewriter. On the back cardstock I used navy Par Avion stamps by Cavallini (available instore). To finish I used washi tape to create an airmail pattern on a plain white envelope. For postage I used vintage Canadian stamps from SendMoreMail (both available instore).
I also cut a piece of Kingin Stationery in half then stitched it to some colourful cardstock to brighten it up a little bit. I thought that such a lovely handmade paper deserved a handwritten letter. I love its small gold flecks and the handmade edge.
