Stampin’ Up Saturday ~ Perfect Postage

I think of my stamps and punches as an investment and before purchasing, I always make sure I’ll be able to come up with a variety of card designs using them. The Postage Stamp punch has certainly earned its keep since I bought it.

I’ve used it here to make a 1st Birthday card for a little boy. There’s a prettied up girl version in pink, but that has a recipient in mind and her Mummy sometimes reads my blog. The elements could easily be switched to make it a welcome baby card, birth announcement or christening/naming ceremony card.

If you’re a regular visitor to Stampin’ Up Saturday then you’ll probably recognise this design. I like to get mileage out of them! I did something very similar for Christmas cards last year. I made this in red for a Valentine card and changed to a neutral palette, with a touch of gold, for a wedding card.

PS I’m having a few technical difficulties getting the new blog up and running. I’ve posted here, rather than miss another Saturday.

How funny! I was so inspired by your cards from Christmas that I made DH a LOVE one for Valentine's Day very similar to this! I love the versatility of the design - thank you!

The felt chicks were very cute, but I am a total fan of anything "postage."
Thanks for sharing,
