I think this is one my my favorite cards that I have made in awhile.  I was just messing around with the Stampin’ Up’s Fresh Vintage stamp set.  This simple card could easily be made with any postage-stamp type stamp and for any occassion.


  • white card stock, cut (1) 5.5″ x 8.5″, (1) 3.75 x 5″, and (3) 1.0 x 1.0″**
  • black card stock, cut (1) 4.0 x 5.25″ and (3) 1.25 x 1.25″
  • Red ribbon
  • Paper cutter
  • Embossing/die cutting machine
  • Embossing folder of your choice
  • Embossing ink
  • Black Embossing powder
  • Heat gun
  • 3 rhinestones
  • 1 rhinestone butterfly
  • Adhesive
  • Pop dots

**I recommend embossing the postage stamps first and then cutting to size.**



  1. Fold the card base in half.  Crease well.
  2. Emboss the 3.75 x 5″ card stock with the embossing machine using the chosen folder.
  3. Adhere large black rectangle to front of card.
  4. Wrap red ribbon around white embossed piece and tape in back.
  5. Adhere white embossed/ribbon piece to top of black rectangle.
  6. Stamp postage stamp images with embossing ink and emboss using black powder.  Allow to cool completely.  See this tutorial if you do not know how to emboss.
  7. Adhere white embossed stamps to center of black squares.  Attach rhinestones.
  8. Pop dot squares to front of card.
There you have it!  Hope you like it!
