 Our featured project this month is a romantic vintage hanging postcard that we have for sale in the shop. Perfect for a sweet Valentine. Using soft gel medium, we transferred a vintage image on to an old playing card. We then adhered the playing card with PPA glue onto a Papaya postcard that we sell in our shop (come as a set in a tin). Next we added embellishments, stamps, and pieces of torn tissue paper. Finally we punched holes and set eyelets with the Big Bite Crop A Dile, and strung wire or ribbon through the top. 
(Sorry this is a little late and I still can't seem to get the picture to post, which is why its late, so anyway if you would like to see a photo of the project please check it out here on our pinterest page.) 
Thanks so much and hope you had a great Valentine's Day!
