I'm showcasing the new Adventure Mini Postage Stamp Set by Raindrop Echo Designs.



(this item is on ebay, in case you are interested, check it out HERE)

I've also used the Vintage Postcard background stamp in place of designer paper on the bottom of my card, the rest of the paper is Pink Paislee and K & Co. I've coloured the Sarah Kay image in distress inks and given her an everyday makeover (she's a Christmas image) by adding FlowerSoft to the holly berries and grass to the ground.


For my pullout tag, I've used the whimsy shapeology Double Scallop Tag Die and stamped a couple of cancellations from the mini postage set on it.



A view of the inside of the card:


I've stamped the images on white cardstock with Old Paper distress ink for a soft background effect, this could be a journaling square or a plae for a picture, or just as is:


I've stamped the images onto white CS and distressed in Frayed Burlap:


And, the back:


I'm gonna pop this in at
