CAS-ual Lawn Trimings

This week at CAS-ual Fridays the challenge theme is: Name That Tune! I've had the song, Please Mr. Postman by The Marvelettes stuck in my head ever since Paper Crafts Magazine asked us what song would play in our heads if they told us they were announcing the Stamping Royalty winners early? Sadly I didn't get the e-mail that my card was chosen, but it inspired me to make this card. :)

Since I used Lawn Fawn Stamps and it worked with their current Lawnscaping challenge: #31 Coloring, I'm also entering my card there! Yay!

The stamp set I used for the card is Lawn Fawn's new set: You Got Mail. I started off by cutting a tent card out of Kraft. Then I stamped the "first class postage stamp" in Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink across the entire card base. Stamping over the first class stamp I went back and stamped the wavy postage stamp in Versa Mark. I cut a strip of Crate paper and affixed it to the background. Then on Neenah white card stock I stamped the mail box, the little envelopes and the hearts on the envelopes. I Copic colored the mail box like a mad woman going over it and over it again and again with different shades of blue. The tiny hearts were easy peasy as I just used a Sugar Almond Pink Copic to color those in. I cut a small slit into the mailbox to allow room for one of the envelopes to slip in with my craft knife. Using some air mail twine from Divine Twine I tied a bow and attached two of the envelopes to the bottom and tucked the top of the twine under the mail box on foam adhesives. The last thing I did was stamp out the sentiment on a light blue flag.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you get something lovely in the mail today! :)

Inky and glittery fingers for all!
