FLAT is in!

I have been trying to create some designs that would be very simple to mail and require no additional postage.

Today, I made this card, which features Polar Love by My Favorite Things.The only touch of texture on this is the fringe ribbon....but it is very thin and does not bulk up a card for mailing. (I am thinking about this a lot these days as I am currently sending a TON of mail out!)

This set is so sweet--I just LOVE the bears holding onto the heart. I colored the scarf and then added the extra lines to make it striped. I added a bit of crystal stickles to it to give it a bit of sparkle. I stamped the sentiment and then cut it up to add along the designer paper.

Materials used: Polar Love (My Favorite Things); Memento black ink; Copic markers; stickles-crystal (Ranger); cardstock-white, ivory (Gina K Designs); designer paper-Cosmo Cricket, The Paper Studio; corner rounder punch; fringe ribbon (Hobby Lobby).

Thanks for stopping by today!

This is so cute, Cammie. And like you, I think about the postage, especially this time of year because I send lots of cards too and that postage adds up...

This is adorable! I love those bears too. I am still trying to find something I like for my mass Christmas cards, preferably with regular postage. Make it a wonderful day!

Oh how darling!
I have to admit ... I haven't even considered the bulk of my cards for sending ... Thanks for reminding me that this is definitely the "time" to look very closely! ;)
