I love this In-Color collection and am so sorry to see it go - therefore the title "Miss You Already" and travel theme. I decided to use some retiring stamps I will miss as well, but added my new favorite set (Butterfly Basics) to complete the card.
I antiqued the vanilla cardstock by spritzing it lightly with a mix of Baked Brown Sugar ink and alcohol. After I stamped and cutout the postcard, I sponged the edges with the BBS ink. For the card base I used the I Love Lace background stamp with Versamark and stamped it randomly several times. The stamp is punched out, edges sponged and adhered to the card. I used Strawberry Slush to stamp the "postmark". Next I made the butterfly by stamping it with Pistachio Pudding on the same color cardstock and die cutting it. I sponged the edges first in Pistachio Pudding and then in BBS.
The postcard itself is popped up off the base and wrapped with bakers twine and linen thread. Finally, I curled the butterfly wings, popped it up on dimensionals and added sequins and last year's In-Color embellishment.
(I'll miss you Pistachio Pudding and Crisp Cantaloupe!)

How vintage and shabby chic all at the same time - and I love it!!! Beautiful!

Beautiful card! I love all the travel elements and also all the vintage elements, antiquing the postcard, etc. This could be a page from a travel journal, a remembrance of the past--and past colors. So pretty!
