Post Card Thank You

Getting back to yesteryear...a time when postage stamps cost two cents? Just the thought of sending a post card today is beyond my expectation. Most people who buy post cards will use them to place in a scrapbook instead of actually mailing them. Today, we just post our pictures on Facebook. Then we have the prices of gasoline constantly on the rise, it is no wonder that more and more of our streets are filled with cyclist on bicycles. Not to mention all the people who are out to feel wonderful by exercising regularly. I know we all have friends and family who do just that. So, here is a card just for them. The sentiment can be changed to fit whatever occasion you need.

Stamp Sets: Post Card, Postage Due, Sassy Salutations, Lovely Little Labels
Paper: Always Artichoke A-2, Whisper White 5 1/4 X 4
Ink: Always Artichoke, Pumpkin Pie, Pistachio Pudding, Markers: Always Artichoke, Pistachio Pudding, Pumpkin Pie
Accessories: Postage Stamp Punch, Little Labels Punch Pack, Dimensionals, 
Stamp-a-ma-jig, Adhesive

When you use the post card background stamp, you want to ink it using your marker rather than an ink pad. This avoids getting ink on the wide empty spaces of the stamp that may transfer to your card stock. The stamp-a-ma-jig is needed to get the right placement of the writing and the bicycle. I stamped an extra bicycle, cut it out, and attached it using dimensionals. I also used dimensionals on the two cent postage stamp. This helped to make these images pop out at you. Have fun, share if you like this, and thanks for looking!
