Show us your handmade postcards and Mail Art

Today I continued experimenting with my new plotter and made this card:

I enjoy the outcome, but it’s not easy to glue :sweat_smile:

Hi Ana, thank you! Do you know where would be a good place on the forum to put something like that? I’m fairly new to the forum.
I usually look up tutorials for the mechanism of the card on youtube, then adjust measurements of it to work within the standard postcard size and put the image design together in photoshop. I could pull up the youtube links and add my measurents if it helps somebody…

Even just links to Youtube or some tips would be helpful and encouraging, I think! Perhaps the best place to put it would be on the #postcard-mail:mailart-handmade-stationery category. :slight_smile:

Thanks to everyone who keeps the topic going! Such a pleasure.

I made a card with fineliners and drawing ink. Didn’t have a courage to send it on it’s own, without an envelope:

I don´t even try to make “beautiful” envelopes. I´m just not really good at handicraft. However I love everything I saw here!

I do envelopes art, too. I´m more going with the weird theme.

This one I made from the front cover of a “woman” magazine. Believe me, you don´t want to translate it in English. I really don´t know who I can send it to.

The next ones are quotes from songs:

The last one is a Franz Kafka text. One who got me nightmares. (Thats the reason I wrote “Paral” on the envelope and jused a butterfly in the end-> happy end). :innocent:
