Flat card for posting

I can't believe how much it's costing to send Christmas cards this year and the ones with even small embellishments on are costing a bomb. So as I needed to make a few more cards to get out, here's one that isn't too fat and should go normal letter size.


This is my last DT sample for Country View Crafts Project Blog for this year, that just feels so strange - the year has gone so fast. 
More details are over there if you would like to see how I made this one and the supplies I used.


But for now - thank you so much for all the wonderful comments on my AVJ Secret Santa Tim Tag Book, it was one of those projects that just kept evolving and I loved every minute of making it and all the details I added.


Have a great week.

hugs Brenda xxx

Love all the vintage elements of your card Brenda, especially the embossed Christmas medallion. I have been echoing the same postage woes for the past few years. Canada's rates have gone through the roof! Hard to create a card with two or less layers and limited embellies. I don't do clean and simple LOL! Sharon

It is a beautiful card Brenda, I love the embossing! One trip to the Post Office for us cost £52, I hope we don't have to make many more....lol. Hugs, Anne xx
