Post Office Packing Paper

Years ago I bought rolls of brown packing paper that actually had the USPS logo on it at the dollar store and used it to tear large pieces and then wall papered my bedroom. I used the leftover roll here. After cutting a piece the size of my ef I ran it through and got this impression. Using a white ink pad I dabbed it over the embossed image. For such thin paper it held up beautifully. Once glued on white cs base I added the Silhouette cut sentiment then added two red glitter paper, paper punched dots. Using a white gel pen I added highlights to the berries.

Thanks for sharing your time with me, now I am sharing this with:

  1. Bonnie, for some reason, I stopped getting informed when you post. No clue why about that, but I’ve really missed seeing your beautiful creations. This is gorgeous with that embossing folder and your great inking on it. Love the details you added. Those 2 red dots are a beautiful accent.

  3. How fabulous that your repurposed paper worked so beautifully for the card background! The white on kraft is always a lovely match too. Thanks so much for joining us at the Tic Tac Toe Challenge this week!
