Postage Stamp Shaped Cards

Hello my crafty friends!
Today I'm sharing my lovely Spring cards from the Cutting Cafe
 "Postage Stamp Shaped template".
You can get the Postage Stamp Shaped Card file here

 This was a really fun and quick card to make. I just love Regina's files!
I cut the postage stamp card base out in bright yellow and white card stock. I used Tim Holtz Distressed  "Mustard Seed" ink around the edges. 
For the tiny postage stamp I printed out
the sentiment in yellow by my sister's request :) 

 This is her example of the silhouette card.
The beautiful black silhouette scene that I used is a Free cutting file By Bird.

The cutout sentiment "Spring" is a FREE svg file by Mary and Leo.

 For the inside of the card I used two stamps from "Dutch Mustard Soup" kit.
. I think they were perfect for this card.
 I Love Unity stamps!
You can get the stamps kit below.

For the second card I just reversed the colors and I think it gives a totally different look.
I added a black button with twine to the top right sun and cutout Bless Our Home. Since the ribbon had dashes I put white dashes around the outside of the silhouette.  
I just love how it turned out!

Two darling cards that can be created quite differently if you change the colors and silhouettes or pictures.

Also I made both envelopes with my "We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board". 
I LOVE the Envelope maker!!!
I can't begin to tell you how Easy and fast it is to use. 
It's a MUST have in my book!
I bought mine from scrapbook.com and it arrived in just 3 days. But, it was one of the last ones that they had in stock.
 If you want one, you can put in your request and when they arrive, they will ship it right out.
Great customer service!!! 

That's it for today my friends!
I again hope that I've inspired you to start creating beautiful cards.
Have a wonderful week and keep looking for new things to come.
