Here is my inspiration for you this month.

To make this post card, I started out with a piece of 6"x4" ivory card stock. I downloaded a post card template from the internet and printed it on the card. 

You can download one here

I then went about making this post card as though it were a one layer card.

I took inspiration from the poem for the sentiment and also picked the colours that I loved from the story board.
I handlettered the sentiment using Sakura Koi watercolours and an aquabrush. I added the flourishes using the Faber Castell artist pens. The roses are from Altnew's 'Vintage Roses' stamp set.
I like the way it has turned out...I have made postcards in the past and these are wonderful little ways to send loving wishes to your special family and friends. Cardstock which is thick (250-300 gsm) can easily be sent in the mail  as long as it does not have any embellishments.

I hope you are inspired to make your own!!

CoasteRide ends at midnight on June 28th 2016
