Victorian Post Cards

This weekend I was inspired to make some Victorian tags, which ended up turning into Victorian postcards.
Awhile ago, I purchased these lovely Anna Griffin tags and I've been wanting to make something with them...
I bought them from HSN, but they're currently sold out. You get almost 300 beautiful tags. I cut out some Victorian images from one of the Dover illustration books, "Victorian Fashions". Next, I stamped some background script onto the tags, added some Tim Holtz index labels and then I glued on the Victorian ladies.
I could have stopped there, but for some reason it still felt unfinished to me. So I decided to glue vintage text paper onto index cards and trim them to size.
Afterwards, I sewed the tags onto the index cards.
Then I decided to sew a bit of vintage lace and a button to each of the tags.
As a final touch I stamped some mini tags using the Stampology "Worth Repeating" set with different phrases so I can use the postcards for different occasions. Since they're cling stamps, you can easily cut the words apart and position them as you need on your acrylic block. Then I just added the tags to the postcards!
I could see sending these postcards in a vellum envelope, so that that the postcard image would peak through!

Yeah Giants!
