Par Avion

Hi and welcome to a new challenge from the Tic Tac Toe team.  This week I went with Travel, Die-cut, Antique for my card.

 This background stamp is a very old wood-mounted stamp from a company called Just For Fun.  I don't think they are in business anymore but I have had this since the early 2000's and I think this was the first time I used it!  I white heat-embossed it onto a panel of Bristol Smooth cardstock, then ink-blended with various colours of ink.  Once I was finished, I die-cut it with the largest of the Postal Frames dies then added Vintage Photo ink along the edges to darken them up and splattered some S'Mores ink onto the panel.  I die-cut a black postage edge frame and off-set that slightly before adhering to the cream card base.

I stamped and die-cut the envelope, envelope liner, note and wax seal and added a tiny bit of ink to the edges for an aged look, before adhering it all to the card.  Finally, I added Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the wax seal and left it to dry.

Thanks so much for visiting.  Please check out the wonderful cards made by the Design Team.

Karren this is just fabulous! You achieved a crisp stamping with that wood-mount stamp - something I was never able to pull off!
Your design is so fantastic, and all the elements work so well together!
