Vintage ~ Postage Collection

Here’s a beautiful vintage card inspired by one of the swaps I received at the Stampin’ Up! convention. Since I do not have all of the stamps and supplies that were used on the original swap I received, I had to change up quite a few things. I am a vintage fan so of course I had to share this card with all of you. 🙂 

I started with a piece of soft suede cardstock for the base of this card. Cut a 5 1/4 x 4 inch piece of Soho Subway designer paper to serve as the background. Next, we stamped the post card image onto a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inch piece of very vanilla cardstock and just trimmed it down. Then we randomly stamped images from the postage collection stamp set using crisp cantaloupe and soft suede ink. The card is embellished with a bit of ribbon and an antique brad. Great card and super fun to make!
