Wedding envelope art is ESPECIALLY for you if:
- You’re so excited about this marriage a card alone is not enough to deliver your joy.
- You’re giving a gift card in a greeting card and want to make triple-sure the envelope doesn’t get overlooked.
- You had your gift shipped straight off the online registry but would not dream of showing up for a shower much less a wedding without a card.
- You are just fancy like that.
By now you probably know we love a decorated envelope. So we grabbed our latest, most favorite wedding congratulations cards, stacked up the craft supplies, and left our artists alone.
Wedding envelope art that hints at what’s inside
The paperboard cut-out is a sneak-preview of the bold and beautiful wooden LOVE letters inside this Signature card. It’s as simple to make as using a craft knife to cut out an initial, then pinching tissue paper circles to make little flowers. We glued beads in the centers to echo the card design.
Doodles borrowed from the design
There’s no shame in our embellishment game. Tuesday S. swiped her color palette, handwriting style, and design elements from this sweet 100fold card.
Following the font
This funky font is pretty easy to duplicate. We used colored markers and a silver gel pen to match this fun Studio Ink card.
All the flourishes
You could almost trace the flourishes on this card onto the envelope. (In fact, that’s exactly what we did!) Super easy, super simple, and absolutely beautiful.
Pretty bits of cut paper
The cut paper collage technique from this 100Fold card was the inspiration for the envelope. And, OK, we’ll admit—this is some better-than-average lettering. But still! Everything started with the card.
