This is our main Easter envelope. I picked up the "Hallelujah" stamp at Christmas, but my sister had the bright idea it'd work just as well for Easter. So, purple ink to match the card and a fern stamp to coordinate with the empty tomb scene on the card. And afterwards I realized it also was a nod to Palm Sunday. I thought it still looked a little plain, then I got the idea for the boarder from the next envelope, and the card had gold on it, so it was perfect! I just traced the outside edge of a stencil.
This one was a joint effort between my mom and myself. It was the mother of a friend who had to go the a nursing home. I asked the friend if her mom was especially fond of anything and she said hummingbirds. Which was great as I had a card with one on and this stamp. My mom helped draw the flowers and had the idea for the boarder.
This was with a bunny get well/thinking of you card. I thought the birds coordinated with the rabbit illustration, and I tied them in with a branch. The Indiana stamps both matched color, and were great as the card is on it's way Indiana!
Be sure to check back next week for photos (& hopefully report of safe delivery) of a Easter themed 13 oz or less mailing (i.e. mailing something other than a box or envelope that is less than 13 oz, so can be mail 1st class)
The name “Smiles Sent Saturday” denotes my hope these things I mailed made the people who got them smile.
