Crafts: Vintage Circus Postcard

I still had some great Graphic45 paper laying around from the “Le Cirque Collection” and decided to make this postcard! I also used some embossing and ink. The card turned out a little different than I planned, but I am happy with the result. It reminds me of the old Big Top, the Ringling Brothers… How exciting it must have been to visit the circus in the early 1900’s… Quick tip: if you are in the mood for a great circus movie, watch “Water for Elephants”. It stars Robert Pattinson & Reese Witherspoon and I really love it. Here are some pictures and yes, I made a video. The list of materials I’ve used are below the video. Enjoy!
