I can get all caught up in my designs sometimes and not remember that the card IS going to be mailed at some point. That's when I opt for a second card for the mailing and hand-delivery for the embellishment rich first one. (For a little bit of information on the US mailing work of a blogging stamper go here. Rates have changed since the post, but the work to have accurate postage still applies.)
So here is a card that has all the fun, but no extra bulk in design.
I'll be creating this with a few wonderful ladies tonight in class at Inspiration Boutique! Yay, I can't wait for a night out with the ladies. See you soon!
