Post Card

Hello friends! I hope you are having a great day.

I made today's card for the most recent challenge on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. The challenge was to use stitching anywhere on your card. I can do that!

I used lots of stitching! The stamps are Cheryl's Postcards and Postcard from Serendipity Stamps. I stamped the postcards in Sahara Sand onto white cardstock. I did a little layering to give them some dimension. I inked the edges, used a pink Copic marker to add some highlights, and added some glitter.

The card base is Sweet Blush. The patterned paper is from the Basic Grey Blush collection. I used a 1-1/4 inch square punch to punch out the squares, lined them up and stitched around all sides. Then I added an oval that I had cut out of Sahara Sand cardstock and stitched. The postcards are adhered with foam tape. Some vintage buttons finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear from you!
