Keep calm.. you might just receive this card !

Hello everyone,

I have made a postcard today, just for fun. I've used one of the birds from Katzelkraft and two more stamps of one of the latest Christmas stamp set.


So, here's how I made it. I took a piece of postcard sized card stock and stamped the starry circles with Versamark ink and white embossed them.
Next I coloured the background with Distress Inks going from  Tumbled Glass via Broken China and Faded Jeans to Chipped Sapphire at the top. The white embossing stands out beautifully like that. 
Next I stamped the background, just a little and made the snowbanks out if torn card stock that was heat embossed with glittery embossing powder on the torn edges. I then stitched around the edges of the card with the sewing machine. 
The bird and hat were stamped on white card stock and coloured with Copic Markers, cut out and adhered to the postcard. Lastly I stamped the sentiment, cut it apart and adhered that too.

If you would like to receive this postcard in the mail, just leave me a comment and I will draw a name out of the hat on the 1st of december ! Good luck ! 

Thank you so much for stopping by !

  1. Heel mooi Corrie. Ik zou hem graag in het echt bewonderen om te zien hoe je al die technieken hebt gecombineerd. Ook leuk om te zien dat er nog een creatief iemand in de familie is. Groetjes, Annelies.
