Today’s card is one that I don’t do very often – I would term it “shabby chic” – or as “shabby chic” as I get! When I first saw the sketch I knew I wanted to use my postcard stamp. While I was digging that stamp out, I found my SU! script stamp. I bought the script stamp from a fellow stamper. She was cleaning out a bunch of her old large wood stamps a couple of years ago. Lucky me!
I inked up both stamps and went to town. I stamped the postcard first. Then masked off most of the image with post it notes and stamped the script letting the left side stamp clearer than the right. I used my postage due stamps and the postage punch to make my stamps. I added a layer of embossed cream cardstock using the pretty print embossing folder. I inked and distressed the edges of both layers trying to add to the shabbiness of the card. A bit of lace and a lot of pearls finished off the card.
Supplies: CS: PTI rustic cream, vanilla and kraft. Stamps: SU! postcard, script and postage due. Other: postage stamp punch, pretty print embossing folder, distress tool, pearls, lace and memento rich cocoa ink.
