Welcome to my blog! Today's card is made with Waffle Flower products. I purchased them after watching a video some months ago by Jennifer McGuire and haven't had a chance to use them until a few days ago. I love anything postage stamp or postage design products, so these items were a must try for me! I hope you like this card.

I began by cutting out the Waffle Flower Postage Collage Die with Neenah Classic Crest Cover Solar White Cardstock in 80 lb. One of the things I love about this set, is you can keep the paper as one collage, or you can cut on the lines and use the stamps individually. 

I placed the die cut onto a Waffle Flower Grip mat onto my work surface. The mat is made with the same material as clear stamps, so it's tacky. Also, it suctions itself to stencil plastic. With the small size of these "stamps," they're the perfect size for small die cuts. You can also take a large image and stamp it over the whole piece of cardstock. I used Waffle Flower's Postage Collage Everyday Stencils. This is the first of three stencils in the package. 

What the piece looks like after the first stencil. I used Distress Inks to color the images. I love how these are all different images, but they are also cohesive.

This is after all three layers of stencils. Also, I used the Waffle Flower Postage Collage Fall Stamp Set for the prices and cancellations. The "stamps" look more realistic after adding them. Waffle Flower has many stencil sets and stamp sets in this collection for all seasons. I can't wait to use the Christmas stencils!

I wanted to pop this up but, due to the dots, I couldn't apply larger pieces of tape. I just hid them behind the individual "stamps."

Finished card. I couldn't decide what color cardstock to put behind the panel. There are many colors, so I felt a neutral was the way to go. Black would also look good. I topped the card off with the "just a note" sentiment from Pinkfresh Studio.
