For todays challenge we are going to MAKE IT FLAT! Here’s the deal:
Today’s challenge will please all the US Postal Workers — LOL!!! Today we are making our cards FLAT. That’s all — no other requirements. Now, when I say FLAT, I DO NOT mean it has to be a 1-layer card, as it doesn’t. We CAN use layers of paper, even light weight ribbon, but the end result of our card must be so flat that there is NO QUESTION when we look at it that it’ll go for 1 stamp only. When inserted in an envelope it should have NO noticeable lumps, bumps or humps. OK? That’s it — create away. Personally, I can’t WAIT to see all your FLAT ideas!!! Perfect for Christmas cards when we do mass mailings!!! Have fun!!!

Heres myproject for todays challenge:
Love this very easy to reproduce Christmas card using all SU products, except for my Nesties. Now I know my ribbon looks *lumpy* here, but really, it isn’t. It is the SU Taffeta ribbon, which is very light weight, and it goes perfectly flat against the card when put in the envelope. I just have it puffed up and looking a bit nicer here for the photo. This is definitely a 1 stamp card!!!
Stamps: Punches 3
Paper: Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Pink Pirouette, Holiday Treasures DP
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Chocolate Chip Marker
Accessories: Pink Taffeta, Scallop Square Punch, Corner Rounder, Petite Oval Nestabilities, Cropadile
Thank you all so much for stopping in — hope some of you have time to come up with some flat cards for this holiday mailing season – I’d LOVE to see them!!! Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!!! We have the threat of snow — let’s hope not!!!
