Yesterday was my DH’s birthday. He did get a card from me, but it was a bit late – oops!
Poor thing, I’m always rushing around so much that he often gets left until last.
I am making it up to him with a special meal out though
So this was the card I made him … eventually!
The card base is an A6 portrait of Smoky Slate. Two Postage Stamps (122344) were punched top and bottom on the left hand side of the card front and then postage frames from the Postage Collection set (W129237 or C129240) were stamped through the apertures onto the Whisper White insert using Bermuda Bay ink. With the frames in place the vintage car and bicycle from the same set were stamped within each, using Black Stazon ink. A different frame and the sentiment were stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White, punched out and popped up on dimensionals between the two apertures. A strip of Eastern Elegance DSP (130131) was adhered to the left card front and thin strips of Basic Black and Bermuda Bay card adhered over the top. Using the Little Labels Punch Pack (126881), mini postage stamps were punched from Basic Black and Smoky Slate card, popped up on slivers of dimensoinals and topped with Neutrals Candy Dots (130934).
On the inside, as well as the frames already mentioned, another sentiment from the same set was stamped in Bermuda Bay ink and the Love You sentiment from Seasonal Sayings (W131937 or C128009) was added.
The Postage Collection stamp set is a hostess exclusive set, ie. you can only order it if you’re a hostess.
Don’t want to have to hold a workshop in your own home? No problem! You can place an order of £150 or more (on your own or with friends) and you still get hostess benefits without actually holding a workshop. Or you can join my Stampers 6 Club (there’s one place left on my current Club that’s about to start) and you’ll get hostess benefits in the month that you are the “virtual” hostess, again, no need to hold an actual workshop. Email me if you need more information about either option.
