I always send out a greeting/reminder for Earth Day, because I think of it as a real holiday, and so I made postcards this year out of scrap card stock!  I made the stamps and everything, too!


all of them

Oh I love this!!!!  Grin You did a great job on the cards! I think this is a wonderful idea!!! I always think its a holiday anyway, b/c its my bffs b/day. I love how they've finally started commercializing this holiday too- only because its benefiting the earth! Well done. I'm too late for this one- maybe next year!!!

Great idea to celebrate Earth Day, and great cards. Can you tell us how you made the stamps and what sort of ink/paint you used?

Thanks everyone!


Verde...  I used some foam scraps, cut and glued them onto another foam scrap, and there I was.  I made one for the blue background, and one for the land parts.  I just used regular old craft paint, like Apple Barrel or whatever.

Thanks!
