Love


Hello my friends. If you have been over on the Whiff Of Joy Inspiration blog yesterday you might have seen this card already. I could not resist to make the bigger version with the decorative border as well.
What i did on this cards, is cut my card stock to 6.75 x 6.75 punched all the way around and than cut a separate pink piece to like 5 x 7.5 and scored a "lip" with about 1" from the top and adhered using the flap with tape to the inside of the card so i was able to create a card base. If you do not like the way it looks from the inside.. you could cover that with Designer paper or just punch this edge also with the border punch .



For the Copic Colors i used on my cards. As mentioned i do not own every Copic color, so imatched my greens as close as i could to my DP but i still found it too bright, but i was able to muted the tones with W01 and W00 coloring with those markers over the entire mail box.

Wow.. i just got the link for you to the stamp i used on my card and i noticed that some stamps of the Happy Mail collection are already out of stock and they went only online on the 9. this month. They are selling fast but iam not surprised they are really cute and easy to color in.


Papers: Basic Grey
Embellishments: Charms, Flowers and a big assortment of Martha Stewart punches can be found at Cute Stamps and Cards!
