Both Betsy Veldman & Michelle Wooderson contributed sketches for this fun vintage mail/postage set. This set allows you to do several different things. You can make your own vintage postage by using the coordinating die (if desired) in conjunction with the postage stamp frame and several little images that can be placed inside of it. There are several different varieties of cancellation postmarks that can be added and layered with the other vintage stamps. You can customize the date with the month & number stamps. And we can't forget all of the vintage-style labels and accent phrases that would typically be found on envelopes that had processed through the post office long ago. The long striped border strip at the bottom can be used to change any envelope into an "air mail" envelope. You can have fun altering the new Tiny Envelope die-cut shape with many of these accents as well. With over 70 images, there is definitely lots to experiment with!
