I made the card above for my friend Liz, who was recovering from surgery. I sent her a care package of earl grey tea and chocolates along with the card. The sentiment seemed particularly appropriate!
I rounded the corners of the stamped panel and matte slightly using scallop-edge scissors. These give a slight curve that looks nice but isn't quite as pronounced as a regular corner rounder.
Simplicity Tip: Some simple stampers refuse to make lumpy-bumpy cards because of the problems with mailing them...risk of damage or expense of bubble envelopes or extra postage. I tend to make easy-to-mail cards most of the time, but I do enjoy going three dimensional, too. And let's face it, PTI's vintage buttons are FABULOUS! So I send lumpy-bumpy cards to people in packages (as with this one) or hand-deliver them, and use flatter cards for mailing. Best of both worlds.
