I'm Bringing Back Happy Mail

Another batch of happy mail cards were sent out today! It does my heart good to know that in a few days, some special people will be opening their mail boxes and finding something fun, instead of bills and junk mail. And it also makes my heart happy that I am using some Designer Series Paper and embellishments that I have been hoarding collecting for a few years. I can't think of a better use for it!

This is a one-off card, but most of the others were variations of this in different colors and with different stamps. I hope it brings a smile to the recipient!

Here's the "How To" Image panel: Shimmery White 2-3/4" x 4" Mat: Dapper Denim 2-7/8" x 4-1/8"
Embossed panel: Whisper White 4" x 5-1/4"
DSP: Marina Mist (Subtles DSP Stack) 1-1/2" x 4" Card base: Whisper White 5-1/2" x 8-1/2", scored at 4-1/4" and folded
  1. Emboss Whisper White panel with Petal Burst embossing folder and adhere to card base.
  2. Add DSP to bottom of embossed panel, and a strip of Washi Tape to cover seam. (I used the retired Metallics Glitter Tape.)
  3. Stamp flower outline in Dapper Denim, filler in Marina Mist, and stem in Garden Green on shimmery white. Paint leaves with Aqua Painter or Blender Pen. 
  4. Stamp greeting from Flourishing Phrases.
  5. Adhere image to mat, and mat to card base.
  6. Tie a bow with silver twine (also retired) and adhere with Glue Dot.
NOTE: I used the Cross-Stitched Rectangles die from Lawn Fawn on the image panel.
