Pretty Postage with a vintage feel



Hey friends!

I just had to share this gorgeous project with you all!  This is a card that I received during my downline swap!  (Here I go again....not sure whose it is?!!)  If I had a brain I would be dangerous!!! (I'm thinking it was either Megan or Marlene??)

The base of the card in crumb cake cardstock.  It is layered with basic black and then the final layer is very vanilla.  As you can see the edge of the vanilla was put through the big shot twice!  Once for cutting that awesome edge and once for the great embossed line that follows it!

The stamp set is called Pretty Postage.  It is found in the big Idea book & Catalog.  In addition to the postage stamp the embossed rectangular frame was used and a piece of black cardstock mounted inside of it.  The white image says "love" and it looks to me like it is on a chalkboard!

The "flower" is done using the extra large flower punch.  There are three of them punched from the Newsprint DSP and they are in various stages of crumpledness.  Of course the finishing touch is one of our favorite fork bows!!!

LOVE IT!

........................... Until tomorrow!
