4/24 Stampin' Up! Mouthwatering Post Cards



I wanted to make a set of vintage type postcards and thought it would be fun to use the Mini Occasions set called Mouthwatering in a vintage kind of way. I used Whisper White textured card stock . . . I love the way that looks when it is stamped with a bold image. The cherries are stamped with Always Artichoke and there is lots of sponging going on. I would not actually mail these post cards as is just in case the layers would cause problems so I coordinated envelopes with additional sponging and strips of designer series paper.


Here's another picture . . . unfortunately, the camera makes the card look "brighter" than it does in real life. I wish you could actually "see" these post cards . . . much more vintagey than on screen!

Stamping to Share Tip of the Day . . . use a bold image and stamp it on textured card stock. It gives that image a whole new look and feel.

Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by!!
