Envelope Inspiration, Volume II

I love scrolling through Instagram to find gorgeous envelopes with beautiful postage stamps, calligraphy, envelope liners, wax seals, and other fun details. Back in December, I shared a little round up of envelope inspiration from the #dailydoseofpaper and #osbpenvelopes feeds, and today I thought I’d share a second installment! Today’s envelope inspiration round up is all about the details, with gorgeous brush lettering, unique postage stamps, beautiful color combinations, and a dose of handmade paper. There’s definitely lots of inspiration to draw from below – and if you’re currently planning your wedding stationery, I’d love to hear your envelope plans!
