Giveaway: Handmade Thank You Cards

Handmade Thank You Cards | The Postman's Knock by Lindsey Bugbee

For those of you who caught my potato stamp blog, you are aware that yesterday I made an adorable potato stamp, which I then used to create a thank you card. And another thank you card. And another thank you card … until I had five. Then I thought, What’s a greeting card without envelopes?

Handmade Envelopes | The Postman's Knock by Lindsey Bugbee

These envelopes are made from the 1964 (?) edition of History of Art by H.W. Janson. The squares of paper for address-writing are from a Minted catalog. Each envelope features lick-to-seal vanilla glue, so they’re all set to go.

Handmade Cards and Envelopes | The Postman's Knock by Lindsey Bugbee

I really appreciate everyone who has come to this blog to check out my projects and garner some inspiration; and I’d like to give back in a way besides giving you information. That is, I’d love to give you some thank you cards. These thank you cards, in fact. (But, since I only have five, unfortunately only one person will win them!) Each card is handmade from vintage books and features my lovely potato stamp design. I added pretty, wispy calligraphy to contrast with the heaviness of the “THANKS”.

Here’s how to enter this giveaway: simply subscribe to my blog using the yellow box below.

    Love your website, Lincoln. :) Thanks so much for stopping by, Jessica! I’m very glad to welcome you, and I’ll be doing another giveaway super soon. I’m with you on the snail mail … there’s just something about sending and receiving mail that makes me feel much better than just shooting over a Facebook message or email. “Snail mail” shows a time and material investment that says, “You mean something to me.” I hope future posts will serve to inspire you as well!

    I’ve learned so much from your website and plan on spending alot more time here, Thank you for taking the time to share your love of paper crafts. I belong to some online rubber stamping groups and every homemade card that I mail out is inside of a homemade envelope, every one of them. It’s just plain fun. I’m always open to new and exciting ideas.

      As you know, I can relate — I love sending out fun things! I actually received a letter in the mail yesterday from a friend who had used a clear plastic sleeve as an envelope. She used white label stickers to stick on the sendee/sender addresses. It was so cool! It gave me a fun preview of the inside. Thanks so much for reading; I love that you are drawing inspiration from the site. :) {And I agree — sending out neat stuff is just plain fun!}
