Hello, cardmakers. Remember me? I used to make cards until I got back into sewing, and I haven't made too many cards since. I wanted to make some Valentine's Day cards to send my relatives so I could include birthday pictures of my son. I found this adorable postage stamp paper
The card base is made from cardboard I rescued from work. The patterned papers are from a really old Provo Craft slab, and the colors worked perfectly with the postage stamp paper. I used my Cuttlebug hearts embossing folder to emboss the hearts onto pink Coredinations cardstock then sanded and inked it. I wanted a vintge look so I inked the edges with Tim Holtz vintage photo distress ink. I think I overdid it a bit. I added some pink staples (from the office supply department at Target) on the corners of the postage stamps.
Thanks for looking!
Those are GREAT!! Love the distress ink (I don't think you overdid it at all!) :)ReplyDelete
