First Class Friend

Good evening!

I have an interesting card to share with you tonight... I'm not sure how I feel about it but I thought I'd share it with you anyway. It's a departure from my usual style, but I like some elements of it. I wanted to use Tami's postage grid stamp as a design element - so I stamped it in the corner of the card front and layered this Stampin Up scallop envelope die over it...

(you can click on any of my photos for a larger view)

Looking at the card now, I'm not sure if I should have sponged the edges of the cardfront with ink - but I was going for a 'shabby chic' kind of a look... lol!

Here's the inside...

So there you have it - I'm not sure it's one of my favorite cards, but it was fun to make! Tami's Special Delivery & Special Delivery Addition stamp sets are fun to play with - in fact, I have several more samples with her set that I'll be sharing next week during Tami's blog hop for her sets.

To see lots more inspiration with this set (and all of GinaK's other stamp sets) be sure to check into the Idea Center. I've been working every day adding more Design Team links and photos to the site in the specific stamp set categories that the tutorials work with. It's been a lot of fun looking through our designer's blogs at older projects that I've forgotten about!

Tomorrow night is another GinaK Designs blog hop - this time we'll be featuring Nina Brackett's beautiful Lord of the Season stamp set. See you then!

Such an adorable card! Love those flowers. Are they punches or do they come already cut? They go so well with your design.
