Happy Mail

I received some happy mail today from one of my members from my class group. What a great idea, Tracy sent me a full size card for me to keep and a notecard to send on to someone else. I thought this was an amazing idea!!!! Tracy wrote her message in the card for me and left the notecard blank for me to pass on.

Parisian Beauty

I wanted to make a vintage style card today as this is one of my favourite style's! I have used two stamp sets on this card, the Parisian Beauty and Fanciful Fragrance. When I want to do a vintage style card I always stamp on Very Vanilla Cardstock and in this case I stamped firstly my images in Merry Merlot and then lightly sponged with Crumb Cake. The tag on the front of my card I stamped my image in Early Espresso Ink Pad, then using versamark ink I stamped the writing on the tag and coated it with clear embossing powder then heat set it with my heat tool. I then sponged it with Balmy Blue Ink Pad and Petal Pink Ink Pad. Finally, die cutting out some sentiments using some scraps from my stash. When die cutting your words adhere your Glimmer Paper, Foil Cardstock or Plain Cardstock to a adhesive sheet before die cutting, it will make it so easy to apply your words to your card if you do this as you won't have to try and apply glue to your die cut words.
