ID: MC Aug 11 - Xmas - Postage Goodwill card
4.25"w x 5.5"h

Created: August 24, 2011

I've been meaning to make a postage image for my electronic cutter and finally sat down and made one... I cut a strip of white cardstock, marked my horizontal (butt up line) and spaced every 1/2", then used a standard large hole punch, scanned it, and copied/pasted to create a square and a rectangle postage. Manipulated so the image was black and then imported it to my cutting software.  I can now make postage stamps any size I want.

I'm also using a part of one of the Xmas stamps from Quietfire Design

I cut the larger postage stamp, made a mask to keep a white border, then stamped my Xmas stamp off the edge with Versafine Black Onyx. Stamped the same image on a scrap piece of white cardstock, colored/embossed with embossing powder, cut out and adhered to my card image. Used Glossy Accents on the green ball. Sponged Distress Fired Brick around the edges, still using the mask. Then just touched the pad, Dried Marigold, along the edges of the scallops.

Stamped the sentiment with the black, sponged with the red through a mask, edged with Vintage Photo.

Direct to paper with Peeled paint and Shabby Shutters, then sponged into all the white areas. Misted and dried. Run through machine with Tim's Mesh embossing folder, reverse side, hit the high points with Versafine Toffee, embossed with Copper embossing powder. Adhered my postage stamps. Added some rhinestone stars which I colored with a red alcohol pen.
