Happy Valentine's Day After to everyone. How was your Love Day? I can't remember being so busy in a while. Had to get some cards off in the mail plus finish a DT card plus Valentine's Day with Honey. I was actually multi-tasking at times. 😍 Since I retired that does not happen much any more heehee
Today's card was made for our USPS letter carrier. I'd seen this adorable Polkadoodles digi "Post Woman" and bought it sometime last year, I think, with the intention of using it for her birthday. I've used kraft card, navy SU card and my trusty old Wausau rocket red heavyweight copy paper (that I have an entire ream of, leftover from my home biz days). I printed out a Kate Hadfield freebie called Lovestruck Overlays on it. Before printing, I rotated the envelope design at an angle in PSE. The 7Gypsies and WPlus9 sentiments are hand-stamped with MFT Electric Red ink. The center road stripe is a white-heat-embossed Technique Tuesday stitches stamp. The post woman was colored with Promarkers. I added a couple of kraft photo corners and navy dots from my stash. OH, and the "road" was made using Pink Fresh's Slimline Strips dies to cut the strips.
For my layout design, I chose this Splitcoaststampers sketch because when I saw it I immediately could see my postwoman walking down the street, lol. So that's what I made the diagonal strip into.
Inside, a couple of Deep Red vintage postal stamps on the left stamped with Ranger Archival Coffee ink on the kraft and fussy cut; on right, Clearly Besotted and Avery Elle sentiments stamped with Versafine Majestic Blue ink.
Tried something a bit different here - used a regular stamp (Deep Red Stamps mailbox) in my siggie spot and then I stamped Papertrey and Impression Obsession siggies on it. Stuck a tiny heart from stash on the mailbox flag and then forgot to color it red with my Promarker, oops! 😋 I printed more of the Kate Hadfield overlay background on my red paper, but upright this time, on a navy SU mat.
And a final view. I LOVE these colors together with the kraft card. Thanks so much for visiting and I hope you have a great day! XOX
