Handmade Postcard - Sender's Choice

The swap description:
Make 1 handmade postcard using sturdy card stock (it's got to make it through the snail mail journey), cardboard or recycled cardboard (like cereal box, just be sure it's clean) for 1 partner. Send naked (no envelope and with a stamp) with a little note to your partner. 

We also had to use a postcard stamp to use on the back of the postcard, so the postcard looks like a store bought postcard on the back.

Here is my postcard sent to the USA:

I used recycled cardboard for my postcard. With the help of a stencil I created the background. I used a circle from old paper to cover that space from stencilling. I used a Close To My Heart acrylic stamp and placed a wooden flower in the middle of the stamped image. Finally I added the greeting on the postcard using foam tape. I finished the postcard using my white gelpen for some white accents.

I didn't took a picture of the back of this postcard. But it has a postcard stamp in the back. And it looks like this.
