Postage Can be Pretty!

I've been working on a swap with the set Pretty Postage (available on May 1st in the Summer Mini Catalog), and this is the last of the cards! I've only posted one other card that I made, but this is the fourth one I did. The colors I used are Very Vanilla, Rich Razzleberry and Always Artichoke. And I used the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing folder for the base of the card.

For the larger part of the layers, I used the Always Artichoke Patterned Papers, Basic Black and a Razzleberry Scalloped Border Edge.

Here's a closer-up of the Pretty Postage. I hand cut the "sweet" part, and then layered it onto a Postage Stamp Punch in Black. And those were dimensionaled onto a Scallop Square punch! I added the "friends" stamp from the Tiny Tags set, punched out with the Jewelry Tag punch. And I added a black brad with Linen thread - I love the linen thread! It works great in little and big spaces!

Thanks for stopping by,
