I have a pack ofCanvas Corp postcards and lately they have just been begging me to be decorated. I decided to go ahead and decorate them to send to my nieces and nephews.
I have a Stampin Up! ice cream cone stamp set that I thought would be fun to create a super tall ice cream cone with. I first stamped the ice cream scoops onto some post it note paper, then cut out the image to use for a mask. Each time I stamped a scoop, I covered it with the mask and then stamped another scoop over the top in order to stack the scoops on top of each other.
Then, I used a bit of Distress Ink to ink around the edges. A little Versafine Black Onyx ink was perfect for stamping my sentiments with. To finish, I glued on a little bow and added some glittery Stickles to the pink postcard.
Canvas Corp postcards are 4x6 in size, and they are able to be sent through the mail like a regular postcard. I decided to put my postcards into an envelope to send them together. I also added in some cute die cuts that I thought the kids might like to play with.
Super easy and cute! If you do ever decide to send a decorated postcard of your own, it might help to just ask your postal worker for some tips, and if it meets postal regulations.
