Hi stampers and happy Monday! It's time for another installment of "mailable Monday". I've been failing big time lately at making mailable cards. I just can't resist sticking a pearl or something on my cards:-) I've got to keep remembering that less can be more (I should REALLY remember that about food, lol).
So for this card I did two things I've been wanting to do for a while. First, I've been wanting to make a card with black, gray, and yellow. Secondly, I've been wanting to use the Just my type set with the first edition DSP. I also added just a pop of poppy parade:
Stamps: Just my type
Paper: Basic gray, very vanilla, daffodil delight, poppy parade (textured), first edition DSP
Ink: Basic black, basic gray, daffodil delight
Accessories: Triple heart punch, labels collection framelits
I just love all the little phrases you can put in the typewriter image! I sponged the main image with basic gray and then also sponged the yellow banner with daffodil delight. It's hard to see that yellow sponging in the photo but it makes a world of difference and really makes the banner stand out and not just sit there looking all stark:)
What's funny is that this card is so simple yet it took me all night to bring it together....clean and simple is always the hardest for me:-)
