Our Creative Corner - Post Card & Giveaway

Thanks for stopping by! My sample today is for this weeks challenge over at Our Creative Corner. This is my month to host and this week I challenged the girls to a post card layout. Feel free to use this template as your inspiration – use your favorite stamps and supplies.

For my sample, I started with soft suede as my card base. I then layered my card with real red and Christmas Cocoa Specialty. The post cards were created using kraft cardstock and stamped using Winter Post and Christmas punch.

To give the card a vintage glow, I sponged on some soft suede ink to each of the layers. To finish off the card, ribbon was added along with a little glitter and a homemade candy embellishment.

Want to win this card... Leave me a comment and I will announce the winner on Tuesday, November 17th.

Please stop by the OCC to see the other samples by the amazing OCC designers. Have a wonderful weekend! Hugs & Smiles,
