I found this great travel scrapbook paper and just loved it (K & Company). It's a bunch of different postcards and I added the postcard (by 7 Gypsies) and this is the photo of them I just love. I changed it to a sepia tone, which I love.
This is the back of the card with the same scrapbook paper (K & Company). I love the vintage feel of it.
The little postmark on the lower left hand corner says "Budapest". My father in law is 1st Generation Hungarian and my mother in law is 1st Generation Polish. Both their parents came over from Hungary and Poland to have a better life for their family.
This is the inside of the card. I sponged a pearlescent warm gray acrylic paint (Stewart Gill Pearlise in Oyster, purchased at Artistcellar) and then cut out the bird from another piece of scrapbook paper (DCWV). I stamped in the same color ink (Tsukineko Versa Magic Brilliance) a birthday wish.
I decorated the little heart with leftovers of the scrapbook paper, glittered it and cut out gold keys from another scrapbook paper I have scraps of, added ribbon and a little white daisy to hold it in place.
I enjoy making card so much I have decided that I am going to start making Christmas cards for next year to our closest family and friends. Each one different and unique. I must be crazy, you say! No, I 'll just do one a week and I'll be done before you know it! Happy card making.
