Note to self ...

Have bought myself a notebook and am writing out 1000 times ...
I MUST make FLAT Christmas cards

Get it?  Yeah right!  So how come every idea I've had thus far (not that I have yet given it a great amount of thought) is for cards with sticky-uppy bits that will incur the horrendous LARGE stamp postage rate - which is ok when you only have one or two cards to send but not when I need to post everso many!

So, here I go again ...

  1. Mm so with you on that
    Tip: make the greeting fancy stamp or cheapo vone bought focal image mount once on gold card then very interesting embossing folder add ribbon with no bow, a two low height bling on end of ribbon and you hv card.. then multiple bof dozen or so vary folders ribbon and focal greeting even shape of the latter. Going to do some for me this month or that's the plan. Did it last year.Shaz in Oz x

  2. Yes, good idea, make "flat" Christmas cards. You could do some good old embossing for a slightly raised effect :) and/or wrap some ribbons around somewhere ... keep it flat, though :)

  3. Too funny, Debbie! It is so hard to go against your instinctive design style! How about those fabulous box cards that lie flat for mailing but have unbelievable 3D when opened? That's a lot of work, however. People understand about the postage. Just make them a "large stamp" birthday card, but it's flat for those Christmas cards for everybody!! Enjoy the weekend!!
