Sometimes you just need to get down to business and today was that day. This series of four Tradition stamps that I have named The Cape (Red, Wolf, Huntsman and Basket) is set to mail to FORAYCH in Oregon. Jeff is working on a summer project for his students and has asked for carvings/stamps for his students to find. Although this is not a traditional planting it is an opportunity to share a hobby he loves with youth that he works with. Historically Jeff has always carved the stamps that his students find but this time he is mixing it up a little and asked for donations.
I didn't want to let these stamps go without creating some Letterbox Trading Cards (LTC's) first. I used Once Upon a Time cardstock and ribbon and did simple embossing and coloring with my Copic Markers. I added a small brad to each and they are ready to roll. I made 12 of each LTC and just listed them on Atlas Quest. Whew! That was a lot of work.
Next up I need to make pouches for the stamps and logbooks and then they will be set to mail. I am hoping that Jeff will either plant these himself permanently after the kids find them (although not part of his original plan) or gift them to another Letterboxer to plant. I would love for them to be planted in a forest type setting somewhere as Little Red Riding Hood always feels like it should be in a forest to me. At one point I had even envisioned creating a video set of clues for this series in costume but now I am just happy to set them free to be found and hopefully enjoyed by the Letterboxing community.
