Daring Cardmakers - Mail Art

Happy Friday everyone.

Its challenge time from the team at Daring Cardmakers.

This weeks lovely host is Svenja and as its world post day today, would like to see something mail inspired on your cards.  This could be an envelope or faux postage etc...

I have to be honest this was a really hard challenge for me and I hope you can tell what I was trying to achieve with my card topper.

I have tried to make a first class stamp for my card.  I used this lovely lighthouse stamp from a set called Sailing Home.  I then added the compass to sort of look like a post mark and I then stamped the first using the set called Family Party.

I continued the sea theme and used a really gorgeous embossing folder in the background called Seabed.

Thanks for stopping by today and please head over to the Daring Cardmakers Blog for more lovely inspiration from the Design Team.

Have a fantastic weekend.


  1. Really creative take on the theme Dawn, love the fresh feel of this and the compass as postmark was inspired!

    1. Thank you. This challenge really got my brain working. x

  2. I'm so sorry, I didn't mean to make things difficult - but this is beautiful take on the theme, Dawn! The postage stamp topper is just perfect and I love a nautical theme.
