Hi everyone!

It's Laura here and today I am back here on the ModaScrap blog with a postcard-style card, made with stamps from the *Postage Bits* series and papers from the *Forever Green* collection!


Even if the papers I chose today were part of the Christmas 2019 collection, I find them perfect also for travel-themed projects – and even more so for the mountain lovers among you! For this reason I decided to combine them with the new *Postage Travel* and *Postage Summer* stamps to create these DIY postcards!


I went for a simple design, with layered patterned paper rectangles from the Forever Green 6x6” pad. I die cut three rectangles of different sizes with the *Dashing Rectangles* and glued them one on top of the other.


I then created three postage stamps with stamps from the Postage Bits, Postage Travel and Postage Summer sets. I stamped them with Memento ink in Rich Cocoa and colored them with Illustrator markers. I then die cut them with the coordinating dies and glued them to the front of the postcard.


I embellished the design a bit by adding a few sequins and then moved on to work on the back of the postcard.


I die cut ModaScrap's *Woodstock White* paper to the size of my postcard, using again the Dashing Rectangles dies. I then recreated the typical postcard design using the Postage Bits stamp set and I decorated it with images from the Postage Travel stamp set.


For my coloring I used again my Illustrator markers and for the message I chose one of the sentiments in the beautiful *Thanks* stamp set.


Lasty, I glued the front and back of the postcard together using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.

And that's it for today! If you like this project idea, don't forget to watch the video tutorial I created for the ModaScrap channel, where I show the step-by-step procedure!


Thank you so much for stopping by and I wish you a good day!

Laura.
