Happy Mail

I like to keep a supply of notecards to send with gifts and swaps and made this one with a couple of small snippets of a lovely Vintage Artistry pad.

I die cut two squares from snippets paper - one of the squares had a butterfly in the corner and the other had a plainer background.  I put the plain square into my MISTI and placed the stamp in the centre before stamping it with black ink.  I used wet glue to attach the squares to the card to give me some 'wriggle room' and ensure they were level.  To finish I used a silver gel pen to colour the paper aeroplane on the sentiment.

To make this card I used:
     5" x 5" white hammer card blank
     Practical Publishing 'The Best of Cardmaking Magic' stamp
     Lawn Fawn 'Outside In Stitched Square Stackables' die
     Versafine Onyx Black ink
     Silver gel pen
     Snippets of 49th and Market 'Vintage Artistry in Blush' paper

I am entering the following challenges:
     AAA Cards - Two Quarters
     CAS on Friday - Happy Mail
     Love to Craft - April Anything Goes
