Easy to Mail

Sometimes you just want or need to make a simple card that is easy to mail, no extra postage required. But, they don't have to be boring! The first card I used the gorgeous set, Dream Silhouettes from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. I decided to leave a sentiment off as I like the feel of the bird flying across the moon...leaving off a sentiment sometimes is nice too:)
This card is for a friends little boy that is turning a year old. I just love this little dino! I stamped him on patterned paper and cut him out and the rest of the scene was stamped directly onto the white cardstock base and colored with my Primas. I did a bit of sponging using a circle Nestie for the "clouds". This set is also from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps called Dino-Mite. You'll be seeing a lot of their images now! ;)

Don't forget to leave a comment for the blog candy, it's right below this post. Hope you have a great day!

I need to make more of these easy to mail cards! Both of yours turned out great--the silhouette is great, and that paper pieced dino is SO cute!

Absolutely! Cards that can be mailed in a normal envelope with a normal stamp - and t hat are still gorgeous... What on earth could be better.
