The Joyful Christmas stamp set creates the perfect postcard for the holidays. So many people would like to make handmade cards for the holidays, but never get around to doing it. Cardmaking takes time, and with busy schedules, it’s often the fun stuff that doesn’t get done!
Postcards are an excellent alternative. You can still send handmade cards to friends and family, but with much less time and effort. You’ll love how quick and easy they are to make, to say nothing of the savings on postage: 33 cent stamps as opposed to the 46 cents (or more if the cards are lumpy with embellishments).

If you’re not a subscriber, I’m sorry you missed out on a handy little tip.

The Post Card stamp creates a beautiful, vintage style frame for the address and a short note. You may have seen several examples in past posts: Vintage Postcard, Grunge Postcard, Happy Day Postcard, and a Shabby Chic Card made with the Post Card stamp. As you can tell, I’ve been a bit obsessed with this stamp!
I ran into trouble inking the stamp because the areas that are supposed to blank also got inked. Yuck, what a mess. Watch this video for some solutions you might like.
You won’t have any trouble inking the Post Card stamp using either of these techniques. Give your creative juices free rein, and see all the cool postcards you can come up with. You’ll love the results, and so will the people you send them to!
