As you can see I love decorating the backside aswell, just making it a bit special.
And I make cards aswell but they mostly go to friends as most postcrossers don’t like handmade cards :frowning:

Comes out really nice! A lovely card :slight_smile:
If you use distress ink for stamping a postcard, make sure that you use some protective cover, as the ink is easily water soluble, as I remember.
Various sealing tipps were written into this post:

And here is my simple goofy googly eyed correspondence card. I’ll put this joke on the other side: Q. Why did the orange lose the race? A. He ran out of juice!

I was really happy with how this fairy tale card turned out. The picture is from my favorite fairy tale book as a child. Over the years the pages got afflicted with mold, fell out of the binding, etc. The book is gone, and I am trying to rescue as many illustrations as I can and turn them into postcards.

I’ve had this stamp forever - so long I can no longer peel it from its backing foil - and finally found something to do with it :smile:

@PinkNoodle I know you posted this months ago but I’m new to the forums and your “GHOSTS! Yesssss!” collage card is my favorite thing I’ve seen in a while

The card you made is really wonderful. For the second card, I have a lot to say. There are Chinese characters on it, which means happy new year. And you combine 2020 with a bull in a very artistic way. It’s really a great idea

Food box postcard, they were very tasty :yum:

Hi, your card look amazing - and those who don’t want handmade cards just seem to have no idea what they miss out.
