Celebrating love and snail mail!

I love receiving cards and letters in the mail!  I also realize that the more I give (or send) the more I will receive.  So with that in mind, I decided to participate in a "snail mail swap" for Valentine's Day.  

Here is one of the five cards I made and sent out for the swap.

 
 

On the front I featured one of my favorite Blue Diamond Stamps heart designs printed with Palette Hybrid Ink in black on pink textured cardstock.  I just love that little bird detail! I then used Ranger's Clear 'Emboss It' Ink pad and various colors of powder to add some shine and texture to the starburst details. 

The heart theme continued inside with a big ole' pop-up heart in red with gold hand lettering. I found the paisley borders deep in my craft stash and suddenly the whole project came together.

Here are some of the cards I received.  HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!  #sendmoremail
