The holidays never leave anyone short on greeting cards, and an airmail stamp is the perfect way to make your holiday envelopes stand out! This simple geometric pattern is also great for people just getting started with stamp carving, and you can even personalize it if you’re feeling wild. Here’s how to make your own–
Pencil in a border to use as a guide for carving the stripes.
Use the number 5 speedball carving tool to make diagonal stripes for the airmail effect, and then carve out the remainder of the stamp.
Using foam pouncers or a foam brush, alternate red and blue for the stripes.
Once you’ve stamped and addressed your envelope, tie a bit of blue twine around it and you’re good to go!
