Stationer's Desk Vintage Postcard

I am just loving the rich tones in Prima's new "Stationer's Desk 6 x 6"" decorator paper pad. The beautiful shabby rose prints in the pad are complemented by various neutral tones and vintage prints. Check out the entire Stationer's Desk line HERE!

I started my project today with a Kaisercraft Wooden Flourishes "Postcard." You receive 2 mm plywood postcards in each package. Although they are slightly color distressed on the edges, I did add a bit more sponged color using Tim Holtz Distressed ink in Antique Linen.

Layers of decorator paper were double taped down next, along with a vertical border of ivory Venise Lace "Lucia." 

I used a Bow Easy to create the Seam Binding shabby bow: tutorial HERE.

A Prima Audrey bloom and Maya Road Vintage Leaves Pins finalize this design.

How would you present this lovely little gift? Just use a Crystal Clear A2 box--the postcard fits perfectly inside!

Hope that you enjoyed today's project...all supplies are from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. Have a great weekend!
