Primrose postcard

 There are all different size cards out there these days and many need their own envelopes, I decided to try and make a card that would fit into a regular size envelope that you would maybe send a letter in that you can buy at any store, no specialty envelope.

The card size was 6 1/4 x 3 1/2 inches. The envelope I used was 3.625 x 6.5 inches.

This paper pack I used once again has these great labels in them, so pretty and so I used the postcard one for my card today.

I added the ribbon around it, tucked in a tag with a stamped sentiment and added one of my wooden roses to it, I waited to post until she received it to see how it mailed and she said she got it in perfect shape.  I did add another piece of cardstock over the ribbon so it would be flatter.

  • DCWV - Primrose paper
  • Ribbon
  • Recollections - Mixed Media Wood Rose
  • Stamps of life - Minis4circles sentiment stamp
  • Martha Stewart - Tag punch

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today and letting me know you have,

Oh, my, this is absolutely gorgeous! This card size is one of my new favorites, except I make 3 1/2 x 6. As long as it fits in the envelope! I love the softness of this post card piece, and the ribbon and rose are lovely touches. Good to hear it arrived in good shape!
