A Handwritten Card - Is that still a "THING"???

Hi Blank Page Muse Stamps Fans!


I'm happy to be back for another term on the DT here at Blank Page Muse Stamps and getting to enjoy more rubber stamping FUN with you all!!!!!
Hope you enjoy everyone's creations and the new stamps you will be able to see in use!!


Today I am sharing an idea for a stationary set with a monochrome theme that is quick and easy to make but very classy and would make a lovely gift for someone who still loves to handwrite letters and use the postal system!

Supplies:
Card & Envelope Set in Silver Grey (make your own set or use a purchased set)
Note: any colour stationery will work if you have a similar shade of embossing powder!
Embossing Ink & Fine Silver Embossing Powder
Heat Gun
Silver ribbon or raffia to "wrap" your set to use as a gift (optional)
Instructions:


Using a range of the stamps from the "Correspondence" set stamp your envelopes and folded cards with embossing ink.
Sprinkle with your silver embossing powder and emboss with your heat gun.
You can also emboss plain paper to fit envelopes when folded for a more "letter" style of stationery. the possibilities are endless!


If using your set as a gift arrange your embossed cards and matching envelopes into a pile and tie/secure with silver cord or raffia. you can even make a little matching tag to finish the gift.

Thanks for joining me today - hope you feel inspired!
Happy stamping!
Sharon
