I've spent a fair amount of creative energy over the years figuring on how to make an easy-to-mail-one-postage-stamp card that still lets me do all of the above. Die cuts have helped with that. Layers made of designer paper. Sequins, but not the cupped kind. That sort of thing. If any of you have ever received a be-sequined card from me that lost its sequins along the way, please let me know. I once received a card whose sequins had mostly fallen loose in the envelope. I use Aleene's Tacky Glue for sequins because it's tidy and strong, but since I've never mailed a card to myself... well, who knows?
The stamp set for this card is Power Poppy's Vibrant Thanks from their latest release. I stamped the Bee Balm three times, masking the first image on the left. Coloring was done with Copics on X-Press It Blending Card.
The designer paper is old My Mind's Eye "Rosy" from my vast collection. I'll list the dies:
- Spellbinders Grand Ovals
- Cheery Lynn Dutch Daisy Boutique Stacker A2 Frame
- Dee's Distinctively Sm Pair of Leaves
- Paper Smooches Hearts

Tic Tac Toe Challenge #012 I chose the "die cut, sentiment, and floral" row.
Hope you're all looking forward to a nice summer weekend. Enjoy it while you can! See you again soon.
