More Stars

Ugh, I can see coming up with titles for each of my 4th of July posts is going to be tedious. Thankfully I’m sure you’re only here for the cards and not the witty banter.

This card was created using a Fall-to-Layout (ftl87).

After getting all the cards into the mail I decided I really like mostly-flat cards like this one. Most of the cards I use are ones that get mailed and mailing bumpy cards always seems to be hit-or-miss when it comes to needing extra postage or special handling. When you mail cards do you tend to create flat cards?

Happy 4th of July

  1. Ooh, gorgeous star, Karen! I really like the Spring Rain paper here with the Pure Poppy, Enchanted Evening, and white!

    When I mail, I mail cards however they turned out–flat(ish) or with tons of dimension. So far, knock wood, I’ve only had one returned, and that was from Mexico. The envelope was trashed when I got it back, but inside, the card was pristine, buttons and rhinestones and all!

  2. I love these colors you used for your July 4th cards, too! If I know I will be mailing a card, I try to make it flat – well, no bumpy thingies (buttons, rhinestones) and nothing that can’t be smashed a lot (special ribbon or roses). I’m not sure if they will be run through a machine.

    Oh, and um, hey, I’m here for the witty banter. LOL.

  3. Love the spring rain paired with enchanted evening; this card is also going into my google notebook for inspiration!

    I use to use clear envelopes with regular envelopes inside, but I ran out of the clear ones, so now I just put some clear tape on the envelope wherever there’s a bump from a ribbon or layer. I haven’t heard any issues about cards being received damaged, but then again, I’m not sure I would tell someone if I got a damaged card!
