Carte Postale

Hello friends
I so appreciate you all zipping over to Scrapbook Adhesives Blog yesterday to leave a comment - 
goodness there were so many- it made me feel very proud - thank you! xx
Today something a little different.  
In this month's edition of Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine I am featuring this card in their 'Help' section.  
I was asked to create a card suitable for a friend moving abroad and this is it!
Because it did not stipulate whether it was for a male or female I thought I 
would go with a vintage travel look.  
The base is kraft cardstock with the edge cut/embossed with Classic Postage Stamp Edgeabilities® 
The tickets and little brown label are from the Labels and Tags set that I featured a couple of Fridays ago.
The papers are Tim Holtz.
I thought the twine put me in mind of a parcel being wrapped.
Don't forget if you would like to take part in the July Inspiration Gallery there's still plenty of time, images to be sent to by Saturday evening please.
Very important...include your address so that I can send you a gift!
Take care friends and I will be back tomorrow.

Hi Christine, Great travel card. Not only is it suitable for either gender it is suitable for any age.
I completed my July inspiration project late last night. Just need to photograph it. Just hoping for a little sunshine.

What a great card Christine could be definately for a male but with a few flowers so easily transformed for female. I have this postcard stamp or something very similar so will give it a try inbetween making books & xmas cards. Oh I'm such a busy little bee lol
