Happy Mail

Who doesn't like getting some Happy Mail?
Today's card features the newly released Love Letters from A Colorful Life Designs and is a good one for those of us that love to send out happy mail.

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I placed a piece of white cardstock onto my Make Art Station and using some love tack tape, I masked around the center envelope of the Love Letters stencil, then inked it up with some Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide ink.
  • I moved the masks around each time and inked all the envelopes with these colours:  Shaded Lilac, Broken China, Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed and some Carved Pumpkin DOX ink.  Moving the masks around to ink around each envelope wasn't that difficult.
  • When I was happy with the inking, I placed the piece into my Misti and stamped the big Hello in the corner.
  • I glued the panel onto a piece of blue cardstock, then onto an A2 sized card base.
  • Finally, I added 3 black gems around the sentiment.

Here is the stencil I used:

I love this card! And I can see where it can be easily masked off with the straight lines. Starting in the middle was a great tip. You have made it so bright and cheerful with those beautiful colors.
