Rush To Sender

I managed to find some time last night to play with another Moxie Fab challenge, The Postage Challenge.  Cath picked out some of the most trendy things out in the crafting world and this was one of them.

I have the Postmark Stamp set from PTI, I just love the whole assortment of stamps in the set and I am so glad I was able to use some of them for todays card.


Paper: cardstock (PTI); patterned paper (Teresa Collins); Neenah
Ink: Vintage Photo & Antique Linen distress ink; Adirondack - Denim; Copic marker
Stamps: PTI (Postmark)
Other: heart punch; Nestabilitie die; PTI Tiny Envelope die; SU Scalloped Edge punch

I made a shaped notecard with a Nestabilitie die and inked the edges with some Vintage Photo.  I die cut the envelope and cut out some patterned paper to make my own lining.  I stamped a postmark over the open seal, it says "Thinking of You".  I just love that "Rush To Sender" stamp.  The little hearts were punched out of Neenah white cardstock and coloured with Copics.

This was fun to make.

I hope you have a wonderful day and are enjoying the weather.  We are having some beautiful days out here.  See you again soon!

Hi Brenda,

I have that same stamp set but every time I look at them I draw a blank...maybe you'll inspire to try something...

I love your card, it's very poetic!
