I shared this Vintage Postcard with you....and maybe you are thinking,
''What am I supposed to do with that?"
Well this is the card I came up with and here are the steps I used -
I used this printable, save to your computer and decide how many you will need to make.
I just loved the vibrant colors in this Post card.
I wanted to make 4 cards.
Carefully cut apart.
I used a glue stick to attach post card to a thin scrap of cardboard.
You probably have a stash of cardboard...am I right?
I cut along the edge.
I wanted to darken and distress the edges. Ink works well but if you don't have any
a felt tip watercolor pen will be fine too.
Then used Tacky glue to attach postcard to another layer of corrugated cardboard....
more scraps right?
I had ribbon that I added with glue and a couple of buttons.
I added a bit of glitter to the foliage. I keep a bit of everything...it just happened that I had extra
envelopes with gold lining saved for some reason. The envelopes were 5 1/2'' x 7 1/2''.
I have more cards here that you can choose from.
If you used a standard size, the cards are light weight and should mail fine.
It is probably best to double check with the Post Office for weight to be safe.
You can write a note on the back side or just sign your name.
I think it will be greatly appreciated by your loved ones and friends.
