Happy Birthday Mary Beth!

Hi All,

Today is my good friend Mary Beth's birthday.  She is an AVID card maker, so the pressure was on to create something really special for her.  Luckily, I had just gotten a new stamp that hadn't even been inked up or used at a workshop yet, so it was something all new to share with her.  How fun!

I stumbled upon the Post Card stamp as I was flipping through the catalog one day.  I was checking out the hostess sets and noticed that they had paired it up with the Postage Collection Hostess Set.  They are adorable together!  For Mary Beth's card, I just CASED the card from the cattie.

The Post Card stamp is a large stamp and acts as the background stamp for this card.  As usual, I went to my trusty Color Coach to get a combo to play with.  I went with River Rock, Rose Red and Not Quite Navy.  They are fabulous together!

What I love about the Post Card stamp is that you can use it so many ways.  You can make a Halloween postcard, a fall postcard, a winter postcard...the options are truly endless. Another plus, you can embellish it in sooo many ways.  I trimmed down a doily and added a punched stamp in  the corner.  I finished the card by spritzing on some Always Artichoke ink and adding some Rose Red Seam Binding.

Every once in a while, you make a card that you just fall in LOVE with.  This is one of those for me.  I adore everything about it.  If you'd like to add any of these must have items to your collection, send me an email or click on the Order Online icon in the top right hand corner.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
