… from p81 – Sending Love with Posted For You Bundle
Today I wanted to share this card from the Annual Catalog with you. For the last few weeks we have been using patterned paper to construct our Mystery CASE challenges. This week we constructed our cards with three panels of paper to make a collage for the front of cars.
In this sample from the catalog, instead of using patterned paper or designer series paper, they different stamped images. And to size them for the collage, they used the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch. Actually, with just one paper punch, they created a multitude of sized images.
Follow along as I take you through the different elements of the project.

Tips & Technique Tricks:
Sending Love Card Construction
Covering the front of the Card base: You can see that they used an Old Olive sample of designer series paper from the Regals DSP 6×6 Collection to completely cover the front of the card. I would suggest liquid adhesive to adhere the two panels. That way you can move it around a little before it drys.
- The notes I have from the design team state they used Old Olive cardstock. So I would assume, since I don’t see it on the face of the card, that the base is this color. Of course, if you prefer to have a Whisper White base, it’s your card!
Posted For You Stamp Images & Punch Sizes…
Postage Stamp Images: These images are all found in the Posted For You stamp set. The three full size postage stamp images are straight from the set. The other two smaller ones, had part of the image masked off, to make them smaller. You can achieve this with a post-it note or washi tape. Just ink your stamp, then cover the section you don’t want stamped.
Postage Stamp Punched – Different Sizes: So to achieve varying sizes of the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch, you will need to punch your image twice.
- So for full size images – stamp and punch out like usual.
- For smaller images – first punch near the edge of the image you have stamped. Then insert the punched out piece again. Line up the scallops on the edge. Then punch a second time to trim it down to size. In doing this you still have the scalloped edge all the way around your image.
Adding Color to the Images: For these images, the Sponge Daubers were used to dab on some color. Simply dab your sponge dauber into the ink color you choose, and then lightly dab onto your image. You can always add more color as you go.
Finish It Off
Sentiment & Embellishments: The sentiment is stamped on the new Bumblebee cardstock color. Then lined with a small sample of the wide Forever Greenery ribbon. Linen Thread is looped around the card and tied into a simple bow knot as well. Then clear epoxy dots are added to the card for a little extra sparkle.
