As much as I love to travel, I might love choosing the perfect postcard to commemorate my adventures even more. Finding just the right card to send to loved ones is such a special travel tradition. We wanted to recreate that feeling with this Travel Postcard and Vintage Envelope craft. This beautiful postcard depicting the French Riviera will make you feel like you were there — even if you’ve never been.

Picture Perfect Postcard

It may seem the postcard is the star of this show, but we love how beautifully these scallop-edged envelopes turned out. Just to be sure we covered all the bases, we’ve included so many ways for you to make this envelope! If you have a cutting machine that offers Print-Then-Cut, that’s great! We’ve included a PNG file so you can let your machine do all the cutting. No machine? No problem. Just print out the PDF and use your scissors to cut out the envelope and postcard.

If you want your postcard to be printed on both sides (photo on one side, postcard on the other), be sure to select double-sided in the printer setup box before printing. The last option — my personal favorite — is to cut out the envelope from the SVG file (or by hand from the PDF template) on whatever paper you like. We used our white frosted paper and then added the edge details using a marker. I particularly love the homemade feel this gives to it. 

Whichever way you choose to make this vintage postcard and envelope set, we’d love to see it. Be sure to share photos of your finished project with us on Instagram with the hashtag #MadeWithLia or in our crafters’ community.
