“Postage Friendly Cards” By Kirsty Piper
I have been trying more and more often lately to actually use my ever increasing card stash! As this ‘usage’ often involves posting my often bulky cards, my postage costs have kind of skyrocketed! Just last week I sent three cards that had to be posted as small parcels :O
With this in mind I have tried to create some flatter cards using the gorgeous new Velvet Ensemble and Pink Gelato collections! This was easier than I expected, as the collections both have some gorgeous flat embellishments in their Sticker Sheets, Printed Chipbaord, Rubon sheets and 6 1/2″ Paper pads.
Materials Used: Velvet Ensemble Collection: Matinee(P672), Performance(P675), 6 1/2″ paper pad(PP844), Rubons(RB921) KaiserCraft Other: Rubons: Moments(RB904), Grosgarin Ribbon: Lovely(RI605), Pearl Strip: Latte(PL505) Pink Gelato Collection:Pink Grapefruit(P681), Rubons(RB922), 6 1/2″ Paper Pad(PP845), Printed Chipboard(CB129), Pearls Bliss(SB718), Tiny Alphas: White(MA509)
