you've got mail..

Edit: Several of you asked about the size of my cards in my Mother's Day post. I've edited that post with the information and packaging tips here.

Hey everyone, you've got mail. :) Today I have a card to show you that I made using Friendship Jar + Friendship Jar Spring Fillers. I thought it would be fun to place the jar lying down so that all the mail goodies could spill out.
I love the look of paper piecing and I think it's even more cute when you stamp on patterned paper and then cut out the paper pieced image. Here I stamped the envelope images twice, one on Rustic White cardstock and then on my patterned paper. I colored the airmail stripes with the YR16 Copic marker. Then on the white cardstock I colored the bottom envelopes with the new E81 Ivory marker.
When the colored envelope gets placed on the white cardstock, the Ivory colored part becomes shadows.
I attached this to my jar image that was stamped with the polka dot filler with pop dots. I added a mini clothespin tied with twine for a fun accent.
The side of the card is fancied up with the little label image from the original Friendship Jar + a die cut and stamped label from Label Basics + a postage stamp from Postmarks. Machine stitching and a tiny staple hold everything in place. Patterned paper is from The Girls Paperie (from my local shop: Scrapbooks, Etc).
Hope you enjoy! Be sure to check out Nichole's blog for the latest sneaks of this month's Papertrey releases. She's got great projects featured today + links to the other stamp designers' blogs.
