I am a little obsessed with stamps (of the postage kind) at the moment. More specifically, vintage stamps. How sweet and romantic posting letters used to be...with lots of little stamps all over the envelope, 'air mail' stickers and lovely post marks. I think it's a little sad this has been lost to electronic post marks, and let's face it: ordinary designed stamps. I'd like to come out with my own postage stamp range! Australia Post...are you listening?
Anyway, until that day, I will continue to swoon over lovely old postage stamps.
I just finished making our Save The Date cards for our wedding, and decided it would be lovely to find some old postage stamps to adorn my envelopes. They are a little hard to come by (those not used, that is) but I was lucky to find some cuties...
Oh, and here are our save the dates! I made a rubber stamp for the text and border to give it a nice hand-printed feel. Silly me forgot to put 'invitation to follow' on the cards, so I added this as an extra little embellishment!
