That's my cute little straw pig holding up my two projects. As they have 3D qualities I will explain how I prepped them for mailing. I merely glued foam I cut from makeup sponges, works great!
Another thing was I used up some really old brads and an eyelet from my embellishments. I used alcohol markers to colour white brads!
The embossed mat featuring the cactus is cardstock from DCVW which was sanded. I thought that turned out great! I wanted bright colours and I love how it all turned out. To add a bit of interest, I tied some orange twine across the card top and created tiny banners that can swing about when you shake the card, they make a soft tap sound and it's kind of fun to do, lol!
Its hard to see but the tag is mounted on a clear tag and attaching the cardstock was easily done with the eyelet.
The sweet butterfly has a foam backed wing as well. It survived the mail which is all you can hope for, right?
Okay! First summery makes and I am already cooking up new projects!
Enjoy your summer!
