Send Pretty Mail #28/29 - Sweet Details


Is it just me, or is 2013 zooming past? Only one more week of June, and one more piece of pretty mail to send, and we'll be halfway through this year and halfway through this project. Nuts!


Anyway, back to the mail. We brought in these sweet little paper doilies this week - for somewhat selfish reasons, because I thought they'd make a really lovely addition to pretty mail. And I think I was right!


Combining the doilies with washi tape and paper tape make for soft & pretty look.


Stamped details add an extra layer of interest.


Washi tape ends snipped into points and small confetti like pieces are more interesting than simple strips.


While I'm usually drawn to brights and monochromatic colours (I know - it may seem like it at times, but it's really not all pink all the time over here!), it was nice to play with softer shades of pink and mint.



Have you sent or received any pretty mail lately?

Want to receive some pretty mail in YOUR mailbox? Send me a note at info@omiyage.ca with your mailing address and a little something about yourself. I'll be making a list and choosing new friends to send mail to each month. And don't worry if you don't hear back from me right away - if you send your info, you should find a pretty piece of mail headed your way some time this year!
