I have a secret… I’m a closet philatelist, and have been on and off for years! Okay, technically I don’t spend my days studying stamps, but I do love to collect those pretty little things, sometimes even assembling them into a framed piece of art!
I think it’s a combination of my love for detail, color and drawing… not to mention the fact that I’m still amazed that they can get a tiny masterpiece on to one small piece of paper.
This is also the reason why I’m in love with the idea of plastering a small collection of colorful vintage stamps on to the envelope of your wedding invitations! I love it when people are able to arrange their stamps, starting at the top right corner, from largest to smallest. That really tickles my fancy!
The best part about adorning your envelopes is that you can choose stamps that fit your personalities. They have stamps for just about any event, organization, location, etc. Above, images from Elizabeth Anne Designs, and below, a few of my favorite stamps...
