Simply made (Christmas) cards

My daughter is in Suriname for her internship. A good reason for me to make her greeting cards. I thought it would be fun for her to receive some international snail mail from her mom. An image of sweetpea stamps coloured with Copic markers. I coloured this image a while ago and I do not remember the colour combination I used. For a 3-D effect I adhered the image with foam dots. Now lets hope this postcard will make a safe trip to Surinam, without being damaged. The greeting is an clear stamp from Hero Arts; the text ' with love' is from Papermania. The swirl is an clear stamp from Inkadinkado (patterned bugs collection).
The small bird and flowers are also stamped and these are clear tamps from Papermania Chatsworth vintage collection. This card is also simply made, since I only added text, swirl, little bird and flowers and the rub on in the corner above.  That´s all!

Too busy these days and I created these easy made Christmas greeting cards. The card stock has so many patterns, so layering would cover the patterns. No need to do that. These are postcards and will be send as such. I finished the back of these postcards as a regular store bought postcard. I did use my Copic markers for the images. The clear stamp images are as the patterned card stock from an unknown brand. To finish the front of the postcard I added a tag, distressed the tags and stamped a greeting on the tag.

With simply made I refer to the card stock, which is beautiful so there is no need to layer with other card stock. Adding an image and a greeting and voila!
