January cardmaking - Canadian Postage stamps
my handmade stamping jig and a little coordinating ribbon flag which I stapled in place using a little gold staple. I used 3D foam tape to secure these focal elements to the embossed layer on my card fronts. I used Merry Christmas as a greeting with the winter postage stamps!! All the stamps are so representative of Canada. The fall postage stamp features a tractor mail box, a yellow school bus and harvested grain fields of the western prairie. The spring one features an east coast light house and nautical mail boxes including one with a fish head. The summer one features mail boxes shaped like a cottage, a church and a cow in a lush backdrop of the fertile fields found in the valleys of the Canadian Shield. The winter one features a chalet and a Canada Goose mail box with the Canadian Rockies in the background. I love how these cards turned out!!
I made four of the Christmas cards which are being added to my stash. That makes my count - 13 so far!!
