Sorta Kinda Faux Postage
Today's card is a product of my effort to pull out neglected tools and stamps (remember the Use-Your-Hoard Challenge...still going!), and give them some love, in this case a very old postage-stamp punch and a couple of older Papertrey sets.
Y'all would not believe how I struggled to put this oh-so-simple card together. At first, all I had was the text strip and the faux postage, but there wasn't enough contrast. So I over-stamped the text with a lime green, which looked simply appalling. Then, I face-palmed my way to a black mat. Well, duh. That's the perfect solution.
The important thing is we get there in the end, right?
So, what neglected supplies could you pull out today and give some love?
