Postage Due

     Today is Red Rubber Designs Inspirational Post Day and today I have the honor of being the hostess.  For my Inspirational I chose Postage Due.  For this Inspirational stamp a card or creation using postage, cancellation stamps, envelopes, postcards or mail type words.

      This is my card

     I cut envelope flaps and then stamped them with the "Postcard" word stamp and the "Postage Cancellation stamp" from the Red Rubber Designs Fanciful Vintage Set  using Broken China Distress Ink.  Next I popped the flaps using Foam tape.  Oh, by the way, I tucked some vintage cream lace between a couple of the flaps.

      Next I stamped three butterfly postage stamps from Red Rubber Designs True Beauty set using sepia ink onto cream card stock.  I colored them with Prisma Pencils and OMS.  Next I cut out a layer using a postage edged scissors and popped my butterfly postage on top of that and then distressed the edges with the Broken China ink and then added a border of adhesive pearls from Queen & Co.

     Before I adhered the postage to my "envelope", I added some adhesive rhinestone swirls and a cream feather.  After the butterfly postage was attached I added two butterfly embellishments from Heidi Swap.  These butterflies come in white and you can add your own color.  I used Copics to add a pink body and antennas to one butterfly and pale blue to the other.
