Vintage Postage Stamp Card

Hello blogging friends! Today, I have a vintage postage stamp card to share with you. I love these tiny beautiful little images from the New Vintage Mini Creative Scraps from Crafty Secrets!! The Vintage Mini Creative Scraps sheet is filled with all kinds of sweet vintage images.Here is a close up of the images. I layered the images on postage stamp die cuts. To create the die cuts I used the Grand Calibur™ and the New S4-348 Postage Stamps #2 die template from Spellbinders™. The Vintage Mini Creative Scraps fit perfectly on the postage stamp die cuts. I inked the die cuts with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and then edged them with Rich Cocoa Ink. Then I added some diamond glitter to the images. I used Sky Metallic cardstock, the Grand Calibur™ and S4-346 Labels Twenty-two #5 to create the label shape. For the embellishment I added hand tinted seam binding, a crochet flower, rhinestone and trinket pins. I used the New E8-005 Classic Postage Stamp Edgeabilites® from Spellbinders™ to create the decorative edge. I love the decorative edge with all the tiny little hearts cut out. Love the detail! For the card base I used Simply Smooth Ivory cardstock. I inked the edges with Antique Linen and Rich Cocoa. Then I stamped the design elements and sentiment using the French Mail Stamp Set from Crafty Secrets. For a finishing touch I added Baby Blue 72 Count Rhinestones from Want2Scrap™.
