So, back in January, I made this card. I made it for my mom's birthday which wasn't until March. By March, we had the Diagonal Simply Scored plate, which allows you to make custom envelopes! This is especially helpful when you're making a non-standard card.
So, I posted on Facebook when I was sending the card off to my mom and later reported that it had made it through the postal system safe and sound!! I had several friends (mostly other Stampin' UP! demonstrators) who decided that it wasn't any good to JUST test Canada Post. They determined that to REALLY test the handmade envies, I needed to send cards south to the US and even as far away as AUSTRALIA!!!
To that end, this card will be doing just that!
It seems a little blurry to me, so if it does to you too, my apologies. I'm still learning the ins and outs of my new camera. :)
I'm not sharing WHERE this one is going, because I want the recipient to be a little surprised, but I am sharing the card with you. And here's a close up:
I love the way it turned out! I do hope my friend will like it too!
