WOW ... Day 1 was so much fun! Are you ready for Day 2 of the Stamp Simply Celebration over on Sharon Johnson's blog ? Today it's MY turn to extend a holiday idea/project out to all of you!! There are a few other "fun events" for today too, be sure to check out the Party Central tab for more information.
With the economy as it is today, why not save a little cash on your holiday greetings by sending a POSTCARD versus a full size card this year?? The cost is only twenty-seven (27) cents (U.S.) and you can still provide your friends/family with that “work-of-art” they have come to expect from you in your holiday cards. So, if you’re up to the challenge, here’s all you have to do:
1) Legal postcard size is 4” x 6”.
2) Create your design on one side using inks, pencils, chalks, markers … even glitter or stickles is allowed. (It must remain a single layer … no dimension allowed … will not make it through the postage machine.)
3) The opposite side is for your correspondence/address. The post office does NOT require you have it stamped “Post Card … This side is for the address only” … although, they DO have to easily distinguish your address from your correspondence greeting.
4) Again, postage is only 27¢ (U.S.) and is affixed in the upper right corner on the addressee side.
So … what do you think?? Are you up to the challenge??
To help get you started, here are a few samples. You can find even more awesome samples made by a few other members of the CELEBRATION gang ... please check them out and join in on the fun.
