A Way With Words - MC Aug/15 - Jumbo Postage - Quill Sea Glass - Hello HB
A discarded postage piece from my previous project was laying on my desk and thought I would use it... This one has jumbo scallops made with 1/2" circles instead of the 1/4" circles I used the other day. You can see how to create your own postage project with this tutorial HERE.
I also wanted to use the Sea Glass embossing folder by Elizabeth Craft Designs. I don't think I've used it since buying it yet... Love it and the technique I used with it.
A lot of the flowers on the card are from my stash and are at least a year old... Only the 2 yellow daisy type flowers are recent.
The "Hello" was die cut (available at Elizabeth Craft Designs or at Quietfire Designs) from shrink plastic and heat shrunk.
And on the inside I'm using one of my newest Penny Black stamps. Love those birds.
Anyway, you can see more details, descriptions and views by clicking on any card image. Enjoy
The rubber stamp quote ("Twirl & Enjoy" 3 pce set) and sentiments ("Friends" 4pce set) & ("Happy Birthday - Plain & Simple" 7pce set) are by Quietfire Design
