This year, as I was going through my stash of Christmas cards, I came across a few cards that I had made over the years that I never mailed.
Why is that, you may ask?
I didn't mail them because I knew they would require extra postage.
They were bulky because of embellishments that I had added.
So, this year, I hand-delivered them to attendees at a recent Christmas card making class.
They were a hit!
Here are a few of those hard to mail cards:
I had seen the idea on Pinterest, and made it quickly using straws I found in my crafting stash.
It was the card I made for a Stamp Club Steam Punk themed card swap.
The tree was cut out of copper roof flashing.
And finally, here are two shaker cards from Pining for Plaid, the October Paper Pumpkin kit.
These cards were easy to create in a matter of minutes using the items in the kit, but a little bulky to mail because of the foam circles needed to create the shaker part.
I hope these cards will provide inspiration.
Even if they are a little bulky for mailing because of embellishments used, they can still be hand-delivered, attached to a present or to batch of homemade goodies!
