Clean Up My Desk Card - Mailable Cards Week

After working on a few projects, I end up with several usable pieces of stuff that did not make it into the original project.  I prefer to work at a clean desk and try to tidy up after each big project. Sometimes I am in a bit of a hurry and a little pile of sort-of-discards starts to accumulate. That is what has happened over the last few weeks.  It was time to take back my surface space and clean up!

Vellum Stamped and Embossed with White - Colored On Reverse

These little trees were too cute to throw away so I put them on a card along with some baker's twine and called it done.  Each was stamped on a different color paper. From the left hand-side: Black ink on white cardstock, white embossing on vellum, and white embossing on black cardstock.  After fussy cutting, they were popped up with foam tape on a Sorbet colored background.

This size card will fit into a business size (number 10) envelope, so it would not require any extra postage. It is 8 1/2" long and 3 1/4" tall.

Thank you for visiting today!
