Today I've got another card to share showcasing the new Happy Mail Stamp Set. I paired elegantly embossed greetings with an adorable panda and mailbox from the Incoming Mail Stamp Set. I love the look of black/white/gold with the cute panda and mailbox images!
I applied black embossing paste to white cardstock using a palette knife and set aside the background to dry. I love embossing paste for the dimension but you could achieve a similar look with inks, paint, etc. if you prefer.
I trimmed a 2" wide piece of vellum and added stitching detail to the long edges of the panel using a Fine Trimmings stitched die. I stamped the large "happy mail" greeting from the Happy Mail Stamp Set using Versamark Ink and heat embossing with gold embossing powder.
The banner was die cut from black cardstock using a Venice Envelope Die Collection die. I stamped an additional greeting from the Happy Mail Stamp Set using Versamark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
I placed the embossed vellum strip over another piece of vellum to mute the polka dot background (but still make it visible) and adhered both to the background. I adhered the banner below the vellum strip as shown.
I stamped the panda, mailbox, and letter from the Incoming Mail Stamp Set on smooth white cardstock using Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink and colored in the images with Copic Markers before die cutting with the coordinating Incoming Mail Dies. I added the Sakura Black Glaze pen over the eyes, ears, arms, and legs of the panda to really make them pop.
I adhered the remaining pieces to the card as shown and finished the design with a scattering of Pretty Pink Posh Mini Gold Heart Confetti.
