52 Weeks of snail Mail

This week starts the challenge of sending out at one piece of snail mail per week for 52 weeks.  I'm adding to my challenge.  I'm making some type of card then actually mailing it off.  I've already sent my first card.  It was the Fall Tag from this post. I sent it to my son and his family.

This week I made a Halloween card.  Word of warning:  I don't do stamping then coloring the stamp.  There are very few exceptions.  I love my cards to be like my layouts, part of me.

The Card

Ingredients
Core'dinations paper (background)
K & Co paper pad (Fence with Pumpkin)
Fiskars Twinkle Twinkle Squeeze Punch (stars)
Moxxie Autumn Buttons (middle of stars)
Tim Holtz Distress Inks (inked the bottom of the fence)

Here is my question:  I sewed through all the layers, all the way around the card.  Now the card is "tight" and will not close without a fight.  How do I do it differently?

Now the hard part.  Who do I send it to?

Have a Crafty Day!

  1. Love the stars with the buttons. I usually sew through all of the layers, then adhere it to the card front.
