Puppy Mail for You - Sweet card by Karen

Hello everyone, it’s Karen here today. I wanted to make a happy mail card using the new “Puppy Mail” stamp set from Gerda Steiner Designs.  I love to get happy mail (especially when it’s crafting supplies!), but a fun or loving note from someone is equally as good to receive and this stamp set is perfect for those cards.
Inside the card

I coloured my images with copic markers and added a few extra envelopes. I drew my envelopes but you could easily stamp the mailbox stamp again and use a few from the mail pile already on the stamp.
I then made a stencil from a “Bright Hearts” Memory Box die I had just received - in some happy mail! - and ink blended the hearts in Distress Oxide Worn Lipstick in the center of my card. Then I applied some Moonstone glimmer paste over this and let it all dry. Once it was dry I glued my puppy mail box image over the stencilled area and added a few extra envelopes to fill in the gaps. I stamped the sentiment just below my scene and the card front was done! 
I love it when there’s a little something extra on a card, so on the inside, I added the two puppy images. I stamped the “I woof you” sentiment on some white cardstock, and die cut it with a speech bubble die I had in my stash (I had to do a little partial die cutting to make it fit around the words).  I ran a black marker around the edges to highlight the speech bubble, and then glued it onto the inside of my card. This was a quick and simple card to make, and it’s just so nice to have some stamps in your supplies that can make a great “thinking of you” type of card. I hope you’ll give this card a try!
