Postcard Swap


Hi everyone! Hope you all stayed safe during Storm Doris!
I can share this postcard with you now as the swaps have been done.
The theme was Love letters & old lace.
I embossed a white piece of card using an embossing folder & my trusty Grand Calibur. Inked around the card using Distress Inks, to highlight the embossing and give an aged look.
I found some backing paper with script on it. Cut a piece of this, inked the edges & placed down the centre of my postcard.
Die cut the hearts from black card & went over these with gold Inka Gold.
Die cut the words from some red card.
I thought it was needing something else down the centre so I made some small envelopes from copy paper, inked around these to give that aged look.
Arranged the envelopes, hearts & words onto the postcard.
Added some small hearts onto the envelopes & some pearl hearts onto the postcard.
Hope you like it!
Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs,
Bev xx
