Mixed Media Tri-fold Postcards inspired by Mark Hearld

I go through creative phases each year. Some months I'm all about making jewelry and other months it's about paper and rubber stamps and still there are times when it's nothing but sewing and fabric projects.  That's what I love about my job.  This week I tackled some happy mail with my seriously-growing stash of rubber stamps and stencils.  I was looking at a book, illustrated by Mark Hearld, and I was totally inspired to make these tri-fold postcards!  You never know when or how inspiration will hit so when it does, sit down and get busy and enjoy the ride.  Make art my friends and don't forget to

  1. Fabulous!! Delightful project and I love snail mail!

  2. mark, can you please tell me how you send these in the mail? Do you put them in an envelope or do you seal one edge and send as a postcard? What does postage run? thanks!

    1. Tape them shut, address them and take them to the post office where they will weigh and give you the cost. Sizes and weights vary so it will depend on the card you make, but it will go through the mail. I've sent many over the years.
