Design It Monday ~ {You’ve Got Mail}!

Hey there stampers! I have an autumn card to share with you featuring the newest Happy Mail stamp set. I wanted to create a fun background for this one. Hope you like it!

I’ve stamped the You’ve Got Mail sentiment repeatedly using a soft gray ink on a cream background. Next I filled in with the set of arrows. It looked just a bit too plain, so I added the dots from the Fall Colors stamp set.

This panel was added to a cream card base then topped with some die cut patterned paper from my stash. My focal was created with two stamped and fussy cut leaves from the Fall Colors set and the postage stamp image from the Happy Mail set.

I trimmed along the edges of the stamped image then used a tiny hole punch to give it the look of a real stamp! Don’t you just love the way this looks!
