Diane Jaquay - Special September Guest!

I'm still catching up from being out of town so it's sweet and simple with my Hello card this week. I can't seem to put this kraft ink away. I just love the exact match to kraft paper. I used making tape to cover up and continue stamping the postcard image to fill in the entire background. 

I cut the Hello die four times and glued them in a stack. It looks like a little piece of wood or chipboard.

On the inside I added the Little Note sentiment. I sponged the edges of everything with the same kraft ink I stamped with. Finished card is an A2.


  1. I love the background you created with the postcard stamp!

  2. I love how soft and subtle this is Jenny. It's gorgeous!
