Hello friends! I’m enjoying all the golden fall colors here where I live. And that is the inspiration for colors on this Faux Postage Fall card that features images stamped on die-cut postage. It’s actually an easy card to make and! And it can easily be adapted to other occasions with different stamped or printed images.
Faux Postage Fall Card Base
From Fossil cardstock, form 3.625 x 8.5 inches slimline card. Rub Distress Vintage Photo ink along the edges. Then cut a 3.25 x 8.125 inches mat of black cardstock and a 3.125 x 8 inches piece of rust cardstock.
Using Vintage Photo Distress ink, stamp bats at the top and corn stalks about one inch from the bottom. Rub Distress Vintage Photo ink along the edges and then rub Distress Black Soot along the edges. Attach it to a black mat using E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser and then add it to the card front using E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser adhesive.
Postage Stamps Steps
Cut three faux postage shapes from white cardstock and three from black cardstock. Using Archival Black Soot ink, stamp bats, scarecrow, and corn on faux white postage shapes. Ink just the bird on the scarecrow stamp and stamp on the corn. Use watercolors to color images.
When dry, adhere each one slightly offset on a black faux postage shape using E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser.
Happy Fall Greeting
Stamp greeting on white cardstock with Distress Archival Black Soot ink and trim to narrow strip. Use watercolors to add color. Cut a 3.125 x 0.5 inches strip of black cardstock. Secure the greeting to the black strip using E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser.
Designer Tip: 3D Foam Squares will make it slightly more lift to the card to give it more prominence.
Arrange faux postage shapes on the card front, peel liners from foam squares, and attach each faux postage shape in place.
Apply Thin 3D Foam Squares Black Mix to the back of the greeting band and secure it across the lower edge of the card.
All done and ready to send to someone special!
