CAS card for FUN :-)

Hi again :-) I have just bought some fab Unity stamps and instead of trying to get ahead with DT cards I just felt like a time out to make a fun card just for me :-) When I went to check the All Things Unity Challenge I saw that I am a featured stamper !! woo hoo !! :-) Thanks for choosing me !! The theme this week is to use a new/unused stamp ,, so I am !! :-)





I made this card following the fab sketch on the Clean & Simple Challenge, I stamped my new Sending My Love Unity stamp with memento ink and coloured with Copics. I layered the post box and added an extra handle which I attached with a brad so it can open and close Open-mouthed smile. I inked the background with Stormy Sky and Vintage Photo distress inks and I used some SU Soft Suede card some Kraft card and a little bit of Basic Grey paper.
The tag was made using a Go Kreate die that I bought at the NEC and the border punch is from SU, I added some American Tag twine and a red button, I thought it would look like a document with a wax disk ?? . I added a few dabs of Star Dust stickles here and there and Platinum stickles around the edges for bling :-)
