colourQ challenge this week then viewed Dawn’s Make It Monday video and decided I could make an oversized envelope/bag for the card to fulfill her challenge as well! The colour combo is a bit different for the layered flower, but I’m kind of loving the non traditional palette! When I saw the colour Q colours, this flower came to mind right away so I was determined to use it despite there being no green for the leaves. The Make it Monday portion of this post shows the coordinating bag that I can use to package this card that goes off the 4.25” sides.
HERE. I just love what she does with packaging!
So what do I do for overly large and/or layered cards? I usually use clear envelopes for cards that will fit. They have the perfect “give” that paper envelopes don’t have. I sometimes use bubble envelopes if needed but recently started using photo mailers (heavy cardboard ones) as they are sturdier and a bit thinner so postage can be less than a bubble envelope. If I’m just giving someone a card, I might not use an envelope at all, but prop it up on their desk or just in the tissue in a gift bag. Thanks for stopping by. How do you get around odd shapes or super layered cards?
what’s in them?
