Well, I guess I wasn't paying attention when they announced the new postal rates. I knew stamps were going up a penny, but I didn't know overseas postage was doubling! I took my international Easter cards to the post office today & about had a heart attack! My card-making friends are important to me, but over $6 for a card is just too much! Guess I will take them apart or add a sheet to the inside so I can cover up what I had written & give them to state-side friends. Then I have to figure out thinner cards to go overseas. Just when I thought they might not be late!
On to today's card which is for the Impression Obsession challenge to make a card using a favorite technique. I chose resist distress & dry embossing using IO's Easter Eggs, MC121 clear set. I've been wanting to use my new VersaMagic colors: Pink Grapefruit, Key Lime & Turquoise Gem. The dry embossed piece is made with Spellbinders Reverse Wonky Rectangles & PTI Take Three. I love the shape of the McGill Pine Branch punch, but boy was it hard to push! Not sure it really goes with Easter eggs, but that's the nice thing when you're the designer--LOL! The sentiment from the same set is stamped in Versafine Smokey Gray & embossed with clear ep on vellum die cut with Spellbinders Labels 10 (2 layers). Better get to work on those thin cards & I know you have lots of blogs to visit--thanks for taking time to stop at mine.
