Card with Karelyn's ribbon

Post by lyndaejane on Wed 4 Mar 2015 - 18:22

Just had to get this card made: male friend in Australia, so needs to be sent this weekend. As we all know, male cards are the most difficult, and even more so when you're not feeling 100%. But got the idea from a card made with strips of paper: I wasn't sure what I'd do with this ribbon, but it has a 'male' look about it. One of the many goodies in Karelyn's Secret Santa to me, so well done Karelyn for giving me inspiration!



Just a silver greeting and the lines drawn round the edge (trick picked up from watching Ali Reeve of Stamps Away).

Pleased to be of service, might have to blah this idea/ sketch it, hope it hasn't added too much weight with the ribbon .

Haven't weighed it, Karelyn, but I'm yet to be able to make a card under 10g so am resigned to the 20g postage! Please feel free to copy: might do some more of these myself, but maybe with paper strips for the UK in case it's too thick for Letter rate. Might check it through the slot before I queue up to post it.

Card only weighed 14 grammes, and it went through the slot for a Letter rate card, if I wanted to do another one to a UK recipient.
