Nostalgic Postage Due

You may be surprised to find out that most of the elements on this card are digital! The Comfort Cafe DSP is digital, the Crumb Cake background is one of the digital Postage Due stamps, which I made to look like it was stamped with Versamark (I did sponge it with Soft Suede), and the little digital stamp in the left hand corner is made to look like I embossed it with white embossing powder. All of the digital elements are the actual size to their counterparts Postage Due stamp set and Comfort Cafe DSP, so if you'd like to remake this card and stamp it yourself, it will turn out just like the My Digital Studio version. I've included the supply list below. I stamped the sentiment with Teeny Tiny Wishes and used the Bitty Banners framelits to make the flags.
The great part about digital stamping is that once you create a card, most of the work is done, which makes it quick and easy to make another card without getting out all of your supplies...I love that perk when I'm short on time and need a card.
