Here is how to create cards for posting without compromising on the style that you have developed.
I like to make card with lots of flowers and ribbons on them but the height involved in that type of card places restrictions on posting as often they are too deep to fit into an ordinary envelope.
The video shows you two techniques ... One is how to make the card flat enough to go into the envelope.
But the other is an interesting way to finish the back of the card, without the need for an insert and to make the card stand alone.
This will make the card flatter
The verse and the sentiment can be added to the back instead and thereby reducing the bulk in the card even more.
Making Boxes can solve the problem for many of them, but if you want to send cards to other countries then this may not always be cost effective.
And you may not want to go to the bother of making a box
And so making a card that is flat to fit into an ordinary envelope is the answer.
Although the card that I make in the video is still a big card this method ... for both the finish and the flatness can be adapted to suit any size card that you make.
I am enjoying making the bigger cards at present but the smaller variety 5x7, 6x6, or the US A2 size can look just as pretty, and just because it is smaller or flatter doesn't mean that it has to have any less embellishment added to it
Though having said that you obviously wont be able to add ep flowers to the front ... unless you intend to give the card to your recipient by hand instead.
The Gemstone swirl is from Want2Scrap and you can get many beautiful designs that can be added to your cards.
Use your imagination when applying them and don't be afraid to cut them up to see whatever it is you want to do on your design.
You can also try Colouring the gemstones or pearls with your alcohol markers for another look to suit your theme very easily.
There is also a video that can help you with the placement of these little objects Adding Gemstones
But whatever you do just play, have fun and make the most beautiful cards for posting.
