Since the challenge for this month is “no coloring” & I really love color, I thought a good way to add color would be by using different ink colors. I started by die cutting the stitched rectangle out of one of the faint printed pieces of the designer paper then stamping the 4 different stamp images w/ four different ink colors. I did have to do a little masking. Three extra stamp images were also stamped & the red & green ones were fussy cut inside the post edge, the navy one was trimmed outside the postage edge. These were all attached to larger navy layers that I used the postage edge scissors to trim (remember all those scissors we all bought way back when?)

The greeting was stamped on a white piece the same width as the postoid panel & I used a lg. corner rounder to trim the ends. The text print paper was die cut w/ a rectangle then I used a dotted edge curved die to cut away the bottom & add the faint white dots w/ a white Prismacolor pencil.

Here’s a look at the inside.
