Here's my card for the HYCCT challenge to be inspired by postage and also the Ways to Use It challenge - to emboss.
I embossed my card base with a Tim Holtz Patchwork Embossing folder and sponged over the top of it with Worn Lipstick Distress ink - and if you look at the top it says 'Post Card' - that's why I attached my Nestability Postage Stamp die cut piece lower on the card - so that would show!
I used a piece of DP of old postage stamps by Authentique - cutting out 3 of the stamps and layering them with foam tape.
The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and I cut it with a Nested Pennants die, curled it on my finger and placed a double thick foam tape in the middle to hold it up with the ends taped down.
