Incoming Mail

Incoming Mail card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Mama Elephant
I took a break from mass producing holiday cards to send out this week to make this love themed design for the current Paper Craft Crew challenge.  The focal image is from Mama Elephant's Incoming Mail stamp set.  I'd colored it last month as part of the Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge.  I adhered it to a white circle with foam tape, then set it aside to put together the rest of the card.  I edged a pale blue cardfront with a strip of red and white striped washi tape along the left side, then added a navy blue banner strip across the cardfront.  The image panel was placed on top.  For the sentiment, I stamped the teeny tiny "love you" from the Mini Messages set on a small circle.  After matting it on a red circle, I adhered it to the cardfront, tucking it underneath the raised image.  A trio of red enamel hearts scattered next to and above the image panel finished the sweet design.

Materials Used:
Incoming Mail and Mini Messages stamp sets, Incoming Mail dies (Mama Elephant); Memento Tuxedo Black ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); markers (Copic); Bashful Blue, Real Red, and Night of Navy cardstock (Stampin' Up!); circle dies (Spellbinders); Fishtail Flag STAX dies (My Favorite Things); red striped washi tape (Freckled Fawn); red enamel hearts (Recollections); foam tape
