I decided to go with an ivory/black/gold theme and create a 50th
wedding anniversary card. This was really very simple to do yet looks very elegant. I layered the Border Bling: Postage Frame in Luxe Gold over a Vintage Cream card base. I then stamped the Vintage Postage image 3 times using True Black ink and my MISTI tool to get a crisp black image. The sentiment was gold embossed and a skinny black satin ribbon finished it off!
STAMPS: Vintage Postage, Vintage Postage Sentiments (Ink to Paper)
INK: True Black, Versamark
PAPER: Gold Luxe, Vintage Cream (Ink to Paper)
DIES: Border Bling: Postage Frames
OTHER: Gold embossing powder, Black satin ribbon.
My second card is my favorite of the two! This bird was totally cut from white card stock (except for his black eye) and the colors were brushed and blended onto the white. I glued his wing on carefully and lifted up the feathers so they look dimensional.
I stamped the Vintage Postage stamp with white pigment ink at least 3 times on Spring Moss card stock. The Border Bling: Skinny Postage die was cut from Simply Chartreuse paper. I enjoy pairing new items with older released images and loved how the bird paired up well with Blossoming Branches.

So...what is your preference with the postage stamp set? The bold black or the softness of white ink? It's definitely a versatile set!
Hope to see you back again tomorrow for the 4th and final reveal day! Happy stamping! ~Wanda
