Good evening crafty travellers. Tonight we had a lovely visit from our lady mother as we celebrated Mother’s Day here in the realm. She arrived in her ornate carriage pulled by four white stallions, adorned in just as much finery as she was wearing. Her skirts (which she had no doubt made herself) swished and sparkled as she crossed the grounds to the Guild Hall. “Girls,” she said simply, nodding her head at the Lady Command of Copics and I.
I started this shabby/chic card by stamping the envelope twice using the Unity “Scripted Envelope” stamp. I cut them both out, cutting the “flap” off one of them. This allowed me to glue them together making an opening. I stamped the postcard using the Lawn Fawn “You’ve Got Mail” set and distressed the edges with my blade of +50 shreddiness. I placed the postcard in the opening I created with the envelope image and adhered it down. The background paper I printed off my computer from an image I found on Free Vintage Digital Stamps. I added some pink crinkle ribbon and a bow. I decided it still looked a little plain so grabbed a couple safety pins out of my vast collection and hot glued those down, earning me +193 unconventional exp points.
On the inside I stamped the sentiment and butterfly using the Unity “With Sympathy” set. I used the remainder of the background paper on the inside.
On the envelope I used the Lawn Fawn “You’ve Got Mail” set to make the mail marks and postage stamp. Instead of the traditional blue and red, I stamped them in brown and pink to match the card.
This vintage creation will make a fashionable appearance in the following challenges:
Our dinner went well, and my lady mother left to return to Castle Cambric. Tomorrow is a new crafty day, where we will embark on a new quest.
