Default F4A314...Going Postal...2/26/2016

F4A314



Since most of our cards are sent through the mail, today's challenge is to create a card or project that honors the postal system. (And don't you secretly think that crafters are helping to keep the postal system afloat with our online orders, swaps, and card sending? I do! hehe)

Use an old postage stamp, add an envelope, use post themed stamps...
we want to see how you interpret this theme!!

Uploading: Remember the keyword is without spaces. Use a comma between keywords with a space after each comma.

If you are new to the challenges, please feel free to do this one or ANY of the challenges at any time. There is no time limit. They are not races to see who can do one first, nor are they contests of any sort. All the challenges are simply to provide inspiration and to get us stamping!

Need help linking a card? Follow these instructions!

1. Open 2 windows: One window for your card and one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Got to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.
You’re done!

Smile F4A314 Coffee Friends

Dawn- awesome challenge, thanks! Used an oldie but goodie stamp set- Coffee Time by Rubbernecker for my sentiment. Coffee image is from a repurposed insulated cup, and I re sized the manilla envelope, removed the flap, then dry embossed it with Sizzix's wood grain ef, finally reattaching the flap and tying it down with double baker's twine in yellow and black. Here's Coffee Friends. TFL!

Now I'm off to purchase the baby shower gift to go with the card. I'll be back later to check out the postal cards in the gallery. Thanks for the fun challenge.

My favorite way to "Go Postal" is to re-purpose postage stamps...meet Edna Ferber: Going Postal with Edna by parknslide - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers
