Snail mail...times 4

I did a fun little twist on this card layout. I stamped Karen Lockhart's Writing Letters stamp four times on four different patterned papers. The sentiment *snail mail for you* is from Vintage Picnic from Papertrey. Patterned papers are from K and Company. For each stamped image, I used a Grey Copic Marker (like W3) to outline the stack of letters. This gives the images a little more definition and depth. Each color of letter stacks got a coordinating tied button to match.

Stamping on patterned paper is such a fun way to get lots of color onto your images...without a lot of work. Just use a sharp pair of fine tipped scissors to get nice, precise cuts. Easy peasy. Hope you're having a great day! Have you made a card lately.....make 'em and mail 'em ladies!

I love when you say "make 'em and mail 'em." I love when you stamp on patterned paper, too. I tried it w/ the house Boards & Beams after seeing you do it.
Hope you're having a great time at Nichole's!

What a perfectly pleasing card! You are so talented! I could envision just one of those mail images on a tiny 3 x 3 card. Your blog is such an inspiration!
