What one could do is have an envelope with two windows, one on the front as you described, and a similar card system for the return address on the back. White makes the first move as normal with a new stamp and then Black simply writes "Not at this address, return to sender." on the back and pops the envelope with his address showing on the front card and white's in the return address and it should all work on one stamp.

It plays a very wonky game but it's quite impressive for the size!
