Mailing Kitty's Love Letter

Hello, everyone! Today I'm sharing a vintage-style card! The kitty and puppy are mailing a love letter! I inked around the edges of the papers, images, and die-cuts with distress ink! I paper-pieced the tiny love letter!  I recycled a textured mailing envelope by die-cutting some cross-stitched hearts!

  • Collage Sheets:  Photo from Gecko Galz - Cats and Dogs Collage Sheet, Tag from Heather Hudson freebie at Gecko Galz Facebook Group (thank you!)
  • Clear stamps:  Sentiment (Clearly Besotted), love letter (Heidi Grace)
  • Dies:  Cross-stitched Hearts (Memory Box), Sentiment and Lacy Heart Doily (unmarked)
  • Patterned paper:   MME Sunshine
  • Distress ink:  Brushed Corduroy
  • Other:  Recycled textured mailing envelope, Offray ribbon
