Next month is my niece’s birthday and I wanted to create some handmade card ideas using the Post Card stamp by Stampin’ Up! This card was inspired by a card I saw on Stampin’ Connection by another demonstrator, Carolyn King. Stampin’ Connection is an incredible resource to demonstrators when you’re looking for inspiration and ideas.

So, as I said, I wanted to use the Post Card stamp, which to me looks vintage. I think she’ll love the look! I pulled out my Typeset Specialty Designer Paper and the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch to create the tags, which I added some pretty Venetian Crochet Trim tied up with a bit of Linen Thread to hold it in place. The two greetings came from Itty Bitty Banners and Bloom With Hope, a beautiful Hostess set you can pick up with your free Hostess Dollars you earn by submitting a minimum of $150 in orders.
The flowers are from Petite Petals, and were stamped using the Coastal Cabana Blendabilities and then punched out with the Petite Petals Punch. I added some larger Pearls to the center of each of them. You’ll note I also did a little coloring on the patterned paper with my Blendabilities.
