Craft Stamper Freebie

The backing paper has been in my bits box for some time ... along with many other"bits" (many other boxes! )  I decided to make a card with it using this months free stamp from Craft Stamper magazine. I know its very PINK but I like pink. Actually in "real life" its a bit browny/greeny as well

This card may be winging its way to France as part of a commission for my friend Jeanie... who lives  there. I'll have to weigh it first on Joe's jewellery scales... It might be too heavy!  :-)
(Private joke between me and Jeanie)

It is too heavy  Jeanie would like the cards to weigh no more than 20 grams due to French postage... quite a challenge.

 Here's what I came up with . It weighs 17grams with it's envelope & insert

Great use of that stamp, Sue. You've given it a whole new look with the pink! Isn't it a satisfying feeling to make something that looks this good with bits from the bit box.

Great use of the free stamp - it's a good one this time and I'm planning to use mine later today hopefully. Been too busy in the garden just lately!!

I've just made a quick calculation, that if this card was pure 24ct gold and 15 grammes it would be worth £378 at todays' gold price ... I wonder if we could fool Jean if we were to gold leaf it :o)

Phew, only 17 grams?!? I doubt any of my cards would make it over the Channel then! You did make a lovely one though Sue. Well done and I loved the first idea too.
