' ' ' 'Crafty Endeavours: Postcard size

Thursday 1 March 2018

Postcard size

Welcome to my first inspiration post for the Country View Challenge. The theme, chosen by Sue is Postcard - Anything 6x4 size (or A6 card: 14.8x10.5cm).

I went with a Fleur de Lys theme for my card by combining a Crafty Individuals 'Baroque Splatter Script Background'  stamp (CI-430) with an old Spellbinder border die (S4-213).

I stamped the background with a Kaleidacolor pad (Blue Breeze). The sentiment is on a die-cut by Nellie Snellen, stamped in blue ink and embossed with holographic powder.

This type of design is good for Just-in-case Birthday cards, equally adequate for men or women.

For more inspiration check out what my teamies did, and do join our Country View Challenge, there is a £20 voucher to win, just saying...

Thanks for coming by,
I am entering the SSS Wednesday, Addicted to Stamps challenges
