Hello, cardmakers. Remember me? I used to make cards until I got back into sewing, and I haven't made too many cards since. I wanted to make some Valentine's Day cards to send my relatives so I could include birthday pictures of my son. I found this adorable postage stamp paper at Michael's.
The card base is made from cardboard I rescued from work. The patterned papers are from a really old Provo Craft slab, and the colors worked perfectly with the postage stamp paper. I used my Cuttlebug hearts embossing folder to emboss the hearts onto pink Coredinations cardstock then sanded and inked it. I wanted a vintge look so I inked the edges with Tim Holtz vintage photo distress ink. I think I overdid it a bit. I added some pink staples (from the office supply department at Target) on the corners of the postage stamps.
