For my project, I decided to do a very simple one layer postcard that would be very mail-friendly. I love going back to postcards nowadays, complete with those vintage stamps and a simple handlettered message.
I started by stamping the buildings from one of Mama Elephant’s October release set – City Sidewalks. I masked off the buildings to blend the distress inks in. I flicked some opaque paint and water to the ink to give it the effect of snow.
On the back, I stamped a few lines for where I would put the mailing address. Remember how all the postcards have a line in the middle separating the address from the message? Well, I decided to imitate that using the dotted die from Fine Trimmings!
